This term, we will be creating animated stories using JIT.  The first stage is learning how to use animate in JIT to move objects around the screen.

    1. Log into j2e and click on JIT
    2. Watch the first video then have a go
        1. Choose your own background and character
        2. Make sure you move it only a little each frame

You should now have:

  • A character moving smoothly across the screen

Tip – if your animation is not smooth enough, add more pictures in between the jumpy pictures.

Now watch these videos in turn and have a go at each technique.

 

You should now have:

  • A character moving smoothly across the screen
  • Something added to the background picture
  • Some effects added to the character

 

You should now have:

  • TWO character moving SMOOTHLY across the screen
  • Something added to the background picture
  • Some effects added to a character

You should now have:

  • TWO character moving SMOOTHLY across the screen
  • Something added to the background picture
  • Some effects added to a character
  • A “mix” page with your animation and a descriptive sentence.
  • ** More than one page – carry on the story…
  • ** Use the microphone to record and play your narration.
