Welcome

Hi, I'm Tom Green and welcome to Web Motion for Beginners. In this project-based course we will start by reviewing the workflows and tools used in the creation and deployment of web-based motion graphics. The first project is the creation of an interactive web banner ad from the planning process to upload. Along the way, we create the assets to be put into motion. The next project shows us CSS Spreadsheets can be used to create motion.

In this project, we turn a flash movie clip into a CSS Spreadsheet and put that Spreadsheet into motion of using the symbols feature of Edge Animate. We'll also be creating an animated GIF as a preloader for a web project and looking at a number of ways of creating a parallax effect using some pretty interesting tools, including the new Google Web Designer application. Let's get started creating some motion with Web Motion for Beginners.
