Name Animation

You will animate your first name (no last names).

  • Change the size of the stage. If you have a short name make the stage 400 pixels by 400 pixels. If you have a longer name make the stage 600 pixels wide by 200 pixels height. The animation should be at least 90 frames long.
  • Leave the bottom layer for the background. You can add the background at the end.
  • Make a new layer. Put the first letter of your first name on this layer. This letter is already grouped. Put it in the library to make it a symbol. Rename this layer.
  • Do the same with each of the other letters in your first name. Make each one a symbol, each one on its own layer.
  • In your animation include an Alpha Transition — this means on one keyframe you set the symbols to Alpha 10% and on the next keyframe you set the symbols to Alpha 100%.
  • Include the letters moving off the stage and back onto the stage.
  • Include the letters changing colors.
  • Make your animation interesting and visually appealing.
