Basic Demo Lecture for After Effects, Timelines and Flash
Using PowerPoint to Animate a Story.
Text Presentation in PowerPoint.
  To practice annotations and transitions, put together a presentation that illustrates your project proposal in detail starting with the problem then moving to the solution. Include your animations from your storyboards by implementing transitions with motion paths or effects from key frame to key frame. There are various ways to add storyboards to time lines, animate them and then export them out as a presentation. Two of these include Microsoft PowerPoint or Adobe Flash. What software you use is up to you. Your stipulations are as follows:
1) A timed visual and audio presentation 5-7 minutes long.
2) Your Story (including problem as well as solution) demonstrated by at least 10 motion paths (moving from left to right, top to bottom, etc.) and 7 effects (fade in, bounce out, etc.)
3) Must contain all important proposal information (your story, your financials, your market, your production needs, etc.).
4) Five effects and 5 transitions added outside of the story for further practice. Implement these into items like headlines, slide transitions or pop-ups.
5) See assignment rubric.

A powerful text presentation tutorial in Microsoft PowerPoint:
Learn further functions independently. It will depend on how you choose to present this as to how you need to export the files. For example, if you would be presenting this as a white board presentation, you would most likely use Microsoft PowerPoint exporting the file out as a .ppsx (the presention slide show) saving it as .pptx (the working file) unless you made a transitional timed slide show, then you save it as a .mov. In Adobe Flash you can export out as .mov, .swf, etc and save as .fla (working file). Never the less, I want both files the working file and the exported show. So place them both in a folder, compress it then upload it to this assignment dropbox.
