How to4.13 Make an animated web banner


DrawPlus has a choice of standard banner sizes for you to select, or you can customize a banner to suit your own needs. Banners for advertising use text to make their message clear. Because of economic considerations they are usually brief with a run time of only four or five seconds. This would be too short to meet the specifications for the model assignment for this unit, which asks for an animation of 'at least 15 seconds in length'.

Take a look at the Serif project Creating Graphics for the Web for a tutorial on how to make a very simple 4-frame advertising banner in DrawPlus that you can also use for practice. You can also find a guide on How to make a Flash banner advert in DrawPlus in the Creating Multimedia Websites project.


The tutorial 'How to make a web banner' explains how to create a more complex 468 pixel x 60 pixel banner advert using three different techniques to animate text. Although the example animation is only 6.5 seconds long, its suggested methods of using text will help you develop a longer animation for assessment. You can view the sample Dog n Bone banner here.
