The Exploration of 3D Hill (Flash Prototyping Report2)

  1. 1. Flash Report on Prototyping 2 ----The Exploration of 3D Hill Tong Xu .The Consideration of the Project I keep thinking of attractive features to encourage people to try 3D Chatting in virtual world. The project of The Exploration of 3D Hill is my endeavor to add some educational features to 3D Chatting. 1
  2. 2. The picture is 3D Hill is made in 3D Max, modeling on various vegetations of different altitudes in Himalayas Mountain. The square is employed to emphasize specific vegetation and fire up the curiosity of users. Music that is typical of mountains (The Moon in Tibet) is employed to promote communication. Music not only reflects the culture, but also expresses and affects experience, creating feelings and responses during listeners. It is just an initial prototype and in the future, I hope to add buttons to let the square to track the movement of mouse to add more interactive features, and relative text-based explanations will be provided to facilitate learning. . The Process to make the Project 1. In Photoshop, use the tool of “Gaussian Blur” in “Filter” to set the Raduis the picture 3D Hill to 6.0 pixels. I name this picture to Blurred 3D Hill. 2
  3. 3. 2. In Flash, set stage to 60 pixels, and choose black for its background. 3. Then I drag two pictures (blurred and clear 3D Hill) to the stage, making sure that the layer of blurred 3D Hill is on the bottom and two pictures coincident with the other (use “WindowAlign”). Insert frames at 276th frames on two layers. 4. Create a movie clip called “box” in Library panel, and drag it to stage on a new layer. Right click the layer name “box” in Timeline, and choose “Mask” to activate the box. 5. Insert keyframe at 276th frame, and create motion tween. Then insert keyframes every 20 frames (roughly) to change the location of the square, so that users are able to explore the hill step by step. 3
  4. 4. 6. Add a white frame for the square. Add a new movie clip in Library panel, and draw another square that has the same size like the previous one. In the backstage to make the second square, delete the inner fill and draw the white line as the frame. 7. Go back to stage, and “copy frames” on layer “box”, and “paste frames” on a new layer with the name of “box2”. Double click the name “box2”, and choose “Normal” in “Layer Properties”. Then delete extra frames caused by pasting. 8. Click the first keyframe on layer “box2”, then click the square in stage, and then click “PropertiesSwap”, and choose the second square instead of the first one. Every keyframe has to be changed in this way. 9. Add background music to facilitate communication and interactions. Add a new layer, and choose “PropertiesSound”, and then select the music The Moon in Tibet that has been imported to 4
  5. 5. Library before. Then “Custom” effects to modify the volume. As background music, it should be quite and won’t disturb participants. Last but not least, let it repeats 999 (or any number you like) to loop the music. Now, the project of The Exploration of 3D Hill has finished! 5
