In this module, students are introduced to animation software. The aim is to demonstrate to students that animation can be produced, edited and applied with the aid of computer software and hardware. By the end of the module, students should have created a finished animation, with a specific audience in mind.
Students must plan their video or animation on paper initially, and must limit their work to within the capability of the technology available to them.
In terms of video making, this module will involve filming, showing an awareness of the effect of focusing, zooming and the speed at which the camera is moved (to compensate for blurred images). Recorded footage should then be downloaded onto the computer. Also, students need to be able to make informed decisions to remove certain pieces of footage, and to order the clips according to their plan.
In terms of animation making, tudents can create or adapt an appropriate picture, considering size, shape and colour. The picture should be saved, either on a disk or the hard drive. Also, students should be able to use appropriate software to amend and alter the picture for different frames of the animation. The animation should include at least five frames. The software can be used to produce middle movements (e.g. tweening), but the students must have manually created at least three of the frames themselves by editing their original picture.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of On Track Stage 2 Module 4 : Animation for a Purpose.
Cambridge Certification is available at TWO stages.
