The purpose is to show the effect of scanning a text. This ewample ist pretty complex whatsoever the animation 'll show.
We gonna use differents skills with groups of objects as well as 'Sprite'. Tool 'Reshape' 'll be used to adding anchors. We enhance the effects : Move et Linear Gradient.
Pay attention to the different stages because it's not so easy as it appears.
1 - Set up width, height and the background color (#006100). 'Frame Rate' : 35
2 - Creating a big rectangle named RectangleExt:
Click . Draw a rectangle with same size as the scene.
We gonna modify it to make it a shape.
Click . Click right mouse button in the middle of the bottom line of the rectangle to display a context menu. Click Insert anchor. An anchor point then 'd appear. Move it to the center of the rectangle to yield
You gonna change the color to yield
Select #006100. The grid means we have changed the Alpha value.
For that, right after having clicked the latticed rectangle below 'Solid', click .
Set Red : 0 Green : 97 Blue: 0 Alpha : 191. ( this 'll give #006100 and A : 75% )
3 - Creating a complementary triangle named Triangle:
Click . Draw a rectangle which covers the bottom half of scene.
We gonna modify to make it a triangle.
Click . Move the 2 highest points towards center to yield
Right now you gonna set a gradient linéaire of color.
It's about a variation of the Alpha background color : left index 75% right index 100%
Click Solid of tab Shape, then Linear Gradient.
Place the indexes to only modifying Alpha, then click Properties to change angles.
4 - In 'Outline', SHIFT being in a down state, select Triangle and RectangleExt.
Click Modify, Grouping, Group. You 'd yield
In 'Timeline', click Frame 0 in row 'Group', then Add Effect, Move. Set the values mentioned hereafter :
( CCW = Counter-Clockwise
5 - In 'Outline', Group has to be highlighted.
Click Modify, Convert, Convert to Sprite. You 'd yield
In 'Timeline', click Frame 20 in row 'Sprite', then tab Action.
Click Add Action (to get At Frame 20) , then Add Event (to get 'Go To Frame 0') which allows to loop.
In the graphic zone, 'Sprite' 'd look like :
6 - We gonna create an elliptic ring with a 3D effect.
Click button . Draw an ellipse named EllipseE
Click again button . Draw an ellipse named EllipseI
In 'Outline', maintaining SHIFT in a down state, select EllipseI et EllipseE. Click now Modify, Grouping, Group as Shape. You'd yield
Click tab Shape in Merged Shape. Enter 0,1 for thickness. Change the color (#FFCC66)
Click Solid in tabShape, then Radial Gradient.
indexes (from left to right) : #FFFF99 #FFFF00 #FF3300 #FF9900
Keep Alpha 100%
Click tab Transform. Enter an uniform angle - 15°
Click button in the buttons bar. 'Merged Shape' 'd be at bottom of 'Outline' tree.
We gonna put a text so that the ring seems to surround this text.
7 - Click . Enter T, color #CC0000, font Book Antiqua
Set this text as mentioned hereafter :
In 'Outline', move the text below 'Sprite' (it 'll be scanned)
8 - Click . Enter exte, color #CC0000, font Book Antiqua. Placez ce texte comme indiqué ci-dessous :
In 'Outline', move the text at bottom . ( the ring 'd recover the text ) You'd yield :
It's over. Test.
We could proceed in another way, creating, for instance, a big circle with a gradient color (modifying Alpha) , instead of RectangleExt and Triangle. It's up to you.
