Animations

It appears that students don’t really like the ‘clumsy’ look of Scratch animations and are going to create these in Flash instead. As such, I’ll have a look at the animations at the start of next week. 

Please remember that in order to get the advanced marks, one has to produce an animation of THREE frames or commands. WJEC guidance states that students will get 2 marks for animation, one for an original and one for a more complex one:

Mark 1. Use of original animation / Flash graphics
Simple animation such as
-3d Textmaker
graphic e.g. wordart
grows and shrinks
or
-simple ‘flash type animation
(two commands) e.g. create ball then make ball bounce
or
-simple 2 frame animation in photo editing software
NB animated Gifs not produced entirely by the candidate gained no marks.

Mark 2. More complex graphical animations
As above but with at least 3 frames or commands
NB animated Gifs not produced entirely by the candidate gained no marks.
You must show your evidence of construction.
