Countdown for (Animated) Success
This month we continue our new user tutorials and
once again, we'll have a two-part tutorial so there will be something for everyone. The intermediate tutorial begins on Page 5.
The easiest way to create cool animations is with Xara 3D 3. But we're not here to do things the easy way, we're here to learn, right? Right? Hel—lo–oh?
For our new user tutorial, we'll create a simple version of the count down shown here. For the advanced tutorial, we'll create the animation shown here that was inspired by the film leaders that precede a film.
So roll up your sleeves, put on your animation hats, settle in and let's get started.
Special thanks to Allison Moore
for tech editing this tutorial and preventing me from becoming comma-tose.
