Multimedia Graphics & Animation – Spring 2020


You have until 6PM 5/7/20 to send me an MP4 of your final project. You can also upload it to YouTube and send me a link. I will reach out to anyone that has not contacted me by Tuesday afternoon with a progress report. If you complete your project prior to Thursday, you can submit it early for feedback and then resubmit it on Thursday if there’s anything I think you can improve (time permitting).

I will send out a Blackboard announcement tomorrow re-iterating this information.

Express Yourself

This lesson covers the Wiggle, Time and LoopOut expressions I covered in class, as well as a few additional expressions (including a way to control expressions with keyframes).

Here’s the exact way you need to type the expressions used in the above video:

  • wiggle(6,30)
  • time*360
  • loopOut()

Change the numbers in the above examples to suit your need.
