April Microproject: Web Animator
Recently, you may have heard about a software called Adobe Flash and how websites like Scratch no longer support it. In the past, you may have even been asked for permission from your web browser to activate Adobe Flash before watching a video or playing a game online. This should no longer happen since Flash is no longer supported by its parent company as of December 2020, but what even is Flash? And why did it matter in the first place? The short answer is that Adobe Flash was software that internet creatives used to bring life to the early web with animations, videos, and games.
Now Flash is gone but the creativity it inspired remains, and we have fun new tools to work with in its place. This month, we’d like you to give one of these tools a try.
Your challenge is to make an interactive animation using Wick Editor
