Reflections for last 2 animation lessons

6 key takeaways:

1. I learned how to do a 6 frame animation.

2. I learned how animation so called 'started'.

3. I learned the 3 types of spinning 'things'.

4. I learned about stop-motion animation.

5. I learned how to make a stop-motion animation.

6. I learned how to use sam animation.

4 key concepts:

1. Animation works on the persistence of vision.

2. The fps for a TV (I think) is 24 fps.

3. By combining many frames together, something can be interpreted as a movie instead of a series of pictures.

4. The speed of the object varies as the gaps between the frames differ.

2 interesting things:

1. Animation can be very funny but can difficult to make or create.

2. I now know that some cameras that salesman say is the 'video' function can just be the fps at work.

Personal Reflection (NEWater visit)

3 takeaways:

1. Singapore has 5 mil. people living on it and it needs to meet with that demand for water.

2. Singapore has come up with the 4 national taps.

3. They are local catchment areas, imported water, NEWater and desalinated water.

2 key concepts:

1. Ultraviolet is very harmful.

2. In relation to the membrane, bacteria is the size of a HDB flat.

1 interesting thing.

1. I can use UV rays (if I have them) to kill people I hate (ie. Isaac and Pasakorn).

What are the things that I can do to help with water conservation in Singapore?

I can help save water (as if I don't) by taking a bath instead of a shower and so on.

Personal Reflection (8th Mar 2010)

I had 3 takeaways:

1. Some people ask to many questions. Some are relevant.

2. I learned how other groups come up with their solutions.

3. I learned how Reuven does his work.

The 2 concepts:

1. We should make designs that all people can understand clearly. It is important to design because later people will grow old and sick of it.

2. There should be a few designs so we can consolidate each and everyone of it.

The interesting thing:

1. I learned that I didn't open my Mac which was odd since ADMT requires the use of Macs.

Ummm... if you read what i typed then you actually bother to.....
