In Tony’s lesson we were looking at different animations of effects. I decided to try to do a frame by frame explosion animation of stone exploding on Flash which was very basic looking but was a ice introduction to Adobe Animates actual animation abilities. I couldn’t compile this onto my blog but screenshotted a couple of key frames showing a chunkier movement of how it looks on the engine. On Flash it is quite a smooth motion, done by drawing on top of ‘onion skins’ of previous frames.
The rock hopefully looks like it explodes and the shrapnel disappears behind smoke, followed by an orange fire-y cloud, then all of it disperses.
