YR 3 Animation & Flip Books
Year 3 have been learning about onion skinning and flip books in Computing.
Recently in computing, year 3 have been learning about onion skinning. Onion skinning in animation is an editing technique used to see several frames of an animation simultaneously.
In these two examples you can see the positions of where the limbs (legs/arms) have been.
Children created their own digital animations using the onion skinning feature to help them move and place their object.
Here are some of the year 3's animations.
Year 3 have also learnt about flip books. From the previous lesson where children created their own animations on the computer, we also saved them as individual frames which we printed out. Children cut them out, numerically ordered them and stapled the frames together.
Some children extended their learning by creating their own hand drawn flip books.
