Creating the cedits using Adobe flash To create the credits for the opening of our 2 minute movie, we used Adobe flash. We wanted the credits to look like an ECG montior to show the audience that the movie was set in an institution. We also added our names and our logo to the credits. Roshani We tried all the different red WordArt styles, so that we would be able to decide on the best text style. Later, we Beatriz decided on the text style with a white outline so that it would be similar to out logo. Roshani After trying the different fonts we Chillerdecided to use the font type ‘chiller’. We all agreed on this font type as it suited our thriller theme for thecredits. We also added a glow to the Curlz MT text as ECG monitors have that Showcard gothic glowing effect.

Click on the image and then right click on convert to symbol. The image will then be allowed to have some animation added to it after the name has been inserted. The image which was converted into symbol must then be dragged onto the stage.To add some animation to this image, we made the image as small as possible and then every time we enlarged the image we inserted a new Keyframe. Then we clicked in-between each of the Keyframes and added a ‘Classic Tween’. This is how the logo was animated starting from a small image to a larger one.
Creating blank ECG effect This is the timeline for each different section of the credits I inserted a new layer so that I would be easier for the editing to take place. These Keyframescontrol the length in which the image stays on the stage for. We inserted a different key frame each time we added a bit of the line on the stage to create the line you see on an ECG monitor. This image shows the timeline of the keyframes before we added the fading to the image.Weroughly calculated for how long we would keep the fading on for. Then we clicked on the image (making sure that we had clicked on the right keyframe first-nearest to the beginning) and then selected ‘graphic’, so that the fading would be able to take place.
The next step was to select which style was needed which was ‘Alpha’. This then gave us the option to change the colour effect percentage. We changed the percentage to 0%, so that the image will fade, going from bright to darker. We then right clicked in- between the keyframes and selected ‘create classic tween’. This then made the image fade away slowly. This is what the timeline lookslike once the classic tween had been created.We then copied and pasted the same ECG effect after each name came up. This would then give more of an ECG monitor effect to the credits.To create the following steps in the sequence, we used the same step which was explained above.
