Direct Motion 2: Animation
Animation is based on points which can be moved along segments, circles or arcs.
The file to the right shows three motions. One is produced by a point moving on a path, one by a point moving along a circle and the final one by a point moving along an arc.
Can you identify the moving points?
Try dragging some of the other points: how does this change the motion?
The demo basic animation will show you how to create this file and animate the points. It will also show you a very common mistake with animation that you need to avoid.
