CA1101 Principles of 2D Animation Instructor: Krishna M.

Sadasivam Flour Sack Animation Project The our sack animation is an excellent learning platform for understanding natural deformations in movement and dealing with the inherent limitations. This project serves as a real training ground for understanding forces, deformation, and fundamental movement.

Using the half-lled our sack will allow you to practice natural movement without having to deal with the extreme complexities of a person or an animal. Your assignment: The our sack must jump over a trap (provided by the instructor). The our sack must: 1) anticipate the jump 2) jump 3) land and react with an emotion. Due Week 5: Your Flour Sack animation is due at the beginning of Week 5. Save the les as Lastname_Sack.a Lastname_Sack.swf

Include the following in your title: First and Last name Flour Sack Animation CA1400 Winter 2012 Sadasivam
