Introduction5.1 Test your animation

 

Before presenting your animation to your client, or publishing it on the web, the final stage of the project is to test your work and to get critical feedback from fellow students, your teacher and, above all, from members of the target audience. This will allow you to trouble-shoot any technical problems, fine-tune timing and sequencing and make improvements in response to constructive comments and criticism.

TestIf you have been previewing your animation frequently as advised, you will have already ironed out many problems, but now you need to step back and take a long, detached look at your creative handiwork.

Does the final product match your intentions? How can it be made even better? In Section 1 you reviewed several types of animation, judging their fitness for purpose, whether the intended message came across clearly and if it was suitable for the target audience. Were you a harsh critic?

Now is the time to apply those same rigorous principles to your own work and to seek the opinion of others. Can you take constructive criticism as well as you can give it?

There is still time to make improvements - and the good news is that any changes you make in response to your tests will gain you better marks.
