Learn to Animate: Animation Principles

How to Animate Level 1: the complete guide to Animation Principles in Adobe Animate

Created by Siobhan Twomey - Artist, Animator & Figure Drawing Instructor


Students: 3099, Price: $94.99

Students: 3099, Price:  Paid

This is a beginner's guide to animation in ADOBE ANIMATE. You will learn ANIMATION PRINCIPLES that you need to know in order to be able to animate objects, text, and even characters.

If you want to learn how to animate from scratch, you can start right here with this course. I've made this course for complete beginners, so if you’ve never heard of a key frame or you don’t know what a timing chart is, then this course is for you. This course is how to animate, 101. I also think this course will be great for anyone who has a fair idea of animation, someone who is a beginner animator, and has been using software to make things move around, but who would like to really know the fundamentals and core principles in order to bring their animation to the next level.

These core principles of animation will set you up for life as an animator. You will learn step by step how to create realistic and appealing motion; plus you'll learn why specific animation techniques effectively bring objects to life. And importantly you'll learn when to apply them to your work.

I use Adobe Animate in this course to teach you how to animate. But there are free options that you can use to follow along; and I cover these options in the first part of the course. What you’ll be studying is basic frame by frame hand drawn animation. This is the best way to learn these principles. And don’t worry if you think that you can’t draw, we are working with basic shapes to animate - to literally bring those shapes to life.

This course starts out with teaching you how to animate with just key frames; and takes you all the way, step by step, through to animating a character jumping. I’ve structured each lesson so that it’s neither confusing nor overwhelming. Because I keep the application of the principles very simple, you’ll have the chance to really get to grips with the concepts and you can do so without having to worry about drawing skills, working with advanced symbols, or with complicated rigs.

The course works progressively towards two final projects. These are important animation projects in every school or university curriculum. In these projects you will progress from key frames to fluid and dynamic character animation. I want to ensure that you feel confident animating a complex character animation with many moving parts, when we get to the final project.

What’s covered in this course

Whether you want to ultimately work in 3D, motion graphics or 2D animtion, you will need to know the things like

  • easing in and out of key frames

  • how to create an ease,

  • why you need to do that - and when you should apply it.

You’ll also learn skills that will not only make you an animator, but will make sure you are a really good animator - skills such as

  • timing and spacing

  • squash and stretch

  • working in arcs

  • working with timing charts

  • how to animate with anticipation, overshoot and settle

Once you are enrolled in the course you have access to the student packs and downloads for each of the projects; plus you’ll have access to me, I’m there to help you along the way and respond to any questions or feedback that you have as well as to look at your assignments and monitor your progress.

I can’t think of a more exciting creative field to be working in and if this course ultimately leads you to pursuing a career in animation that would be amazing. Either way if you want to work as a professional animator, or if you want o use animation s a way to make your own short films; this is the start of a very exciting journey.

Students: 1518, Price:  Paid

Animate characters you create with your web cam and automated lip sync in Adobe's Character Animator!  

Motion capture puppets are great for:

  • explainer video animations

This course utilizes Adobe Photoshop to build our puppets and files are exported to Adobe After Effects, so both programs are essential to using Character Animator effectively.

This is a highly effective way to create reusable characters for explainer videos, short film, music videos and other media.  

Adobe Flash/Animate

Learn How to Use the Animation and Interactive Media Industry Standard Software

Created by Academy of Film Fashion and Design - Provider of Creative, Online courses


Students: 1399, Price: $19.99

Students: 1399, Price:  Paid

Adobe Flash/Animate is an animation and interactive media industry standard software. With it, we can create animation projects such as short films, commercials and even big projects such as television shows. While it is capable of being the only software used for all parts of an animated project, it’s not necessarily a compositing, video editing or sound software. Thus, it’s best utilized with other software such as Premiere and After Effects for animated projects. Flash is capable of both frame-by-frame animation, as well as other, more complex puppeting animation. However, while it has some camera functionality, it’s rather limited with it and again if you’d like to imply 3D space you’re best off including other software with more powerful camera features and manipulation, such as After Effects. However, what makes Flash different from other animation software is that it’s also built for interactivity, and with it you can create interactive projects, websites (though it’s a risky program to use for websites because of SEO), e-cards and video games.

Create HTML5 Games Using Adobe Animate

Make resolution independent HTML5 games using Adobe Animate CC

Created by Nicholas Lever - Game developer


Students: 555, Price: $34.99

Students: 555, Price:  Paid

Just a few years ago nearly all browser based games used Adobe Flash. This all changed when Steve Jobs refused to allow the Flash player in the iOS Safari browser and at the same time HTML5 introduced the Canvas with an api to allow fast sprite animations. Most developers have moved away from Adobe Flash, but Adobe Flash in its latest incarnation Adobe Animate can output content that is completely HTML5 compliant. What is more it is resolution independent, so when the output is resized it still looks great. Adobe Animate is targeted mainly at non interactive content. But there is nothing to stop the developer from using the output and some Javascript to create great looking HTML5 games.

The author has created Flash games for clients including the Mars Corporation, BBC, Johnson & Johnson and Deloittes. He is also the author of two books about using Flash for game development. In this course he shows how users familiar with Flash can use their existing skills to create great HTML5 games and takes developers unfamiliar with Adobe Animate through the details of using the drawing tools and animation tools to create the assets that will be used in a game. We also look at how it is possible to get free vector based graphics that can then be animated and used in a game.

Then the course takes the student through all the steps to create a simple game before moving onto a more complex example with a user interface and sound effects.

Having completed the course you will be able to control animations created in Adobe Animate using Javascript. Allowing you to create just about any game and you will even be shown how to add a physics engine to create games that use complex physics calculations to control the movement.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up now and start using this terrific tool to create some fantastic games. With a 30 day money back guarantee you have nothing to lose.

Hi !,

A very warm welcome in this exciting easy to follow course on Adobe Animate CC!

If you are interested in learning a new tool that can help you animate or make vector graphics you have landed at the right course, this course takes you from the very basics of how to operate on the tools laying a very concrete foundation along with explaining the interface in depth.  I believe that if my students have the core understanding of the basics of any tool, learning pro concepts becomes very easy. 

Most of the time students are stuck up only because they cannot execute the idea properly due to the lack of understanding of the interface of the software. Learning to use a software is just like driving the car, once you get the hang of it everything becomes smooth!

The course has multiple lessons, each lesson carefully focusing on one topic at a time, so you can easily grasp the lecture experiment or practice with what is taught and move to the next lecture at your own pace!

Please feel free to leave suggestions and anything you might think needs improvement, I will surely listen to your suggestions and make sure they are reflected in the upcoming lessons!

Also if you feel something is not clear please feel free to ask questions, I am here to help you out.

Cheers & Happy Learning!

Adobe animate is software for design vector drawings and create animations. Animating with Animate has never been so amazing. Animate has two distinct parts, a design part with the creation of shapes, scenes or characters with the different tools, and an animation part with a timeline, where it is possible to manage frames per second and much more. It is a very ergonomic software which allows to make simple animations for presentations, or for social networks, but which also allows to make much more advanced animations with the creation of characters and puppets.

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at all people who want to get started in animation with reference software. You are beginners in graphics and animation, or simply in animation, the course will be adapted to your research. You need to make animations for personal or professional projects, then the course will be an excellent basis for carrying out your animations.

Description of the course

In this course you will learn how to use Adobe Animate from scratch. We will work in a learning logic, namely the discovery of the dashboard, to then work on the design part. The different tools will be seen in detail for the design. Once this big part is designed, we will work on a big animation part. We will thus see how to use the timeline with the images, and to realize animations with several examples. At the end of the training, a great project with the creation of a simple character step by step, and with the an animation of this character in a scene.
