CREATING 2D ANIMATION WITH THE ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE is an innovative text that teaches the concepts and techniques needed to create and edit two-dimensional animations using the Adobe Creative Suite programs Illustrator, Photoshop, and Flash. The text begins with review of the basic features and tools of each program, then helps integrate their use via roundtrip editing, which enables seamless switching between applications for an efficient workflow. In addition to highlighting these practical software skills, this text helps bring visions to life. CREATING 2D ANIMATION WITH THE ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE explores essential animation concepts, character and story development, and the history of animation, providing a solid theoretical grounding to complement technical abilities. Exercises, activities, and open-ended creative projects throughout provide exposure to a variety of animation approaches—including cell or flip animation, stop-motion animation, Flash animation using tweens, and inverse kinematics—enabling designers to compile a diverse portfolio of high-quality animations to showcase artistic talent and technical skill.
