Dec 7: Animation


Using Processing, create a simple program of your own design that demonstrates some of the techniques we learned in class.

Mouse input, loops, random number generation, colour and drawing are all topics to explore.

Points to keep in mind:

  • All code must be your own.
  • Test carefully
  • Use the Processing "Archive Sketch" function (in the "Tools" menu") to create a .zip file of your sketch - submit that zip file.
  • Use the "Reference" function in the "Tools" menu to learn more about additional functions.
  • For any program that accepts user input, you will need to build it in "Interactive" mode.

Submit: upload to class web site. Filename:

Due via class web site by 6 pm, Dec 13.
