Using Comicbook Format in Storyline

Pow (comic text)

SESSION: Story Hero: Create Comics and  Motion  Comics  Interactions with Storyline

PRESENTER: Michael Sheyahshe

Remember to become aware…How we read comic books

Comicbook style interactions, using animations. Place more emphasis on the story.

Comics: create interest, focuses on story points.  Visually communicate ideas and grab your attention.

What Panels do….

Allow you to storyboard content.

  • Reference – Scott McCloud’s icons hierarchy.

Scot McCloud visual hierarchy

  • Comics –> Distance = Time.
  • Closer = less time.
  • Tripping the Z-axis. Translation perceived depth. Simple example = shadow.

Comixology is a great app. Provides examples of how to execute.

Execution recommendations:

  • Keep animation simple. Simple line motion animation can provide a  powerful effect. Remember distance = time.
  • Create your comic layout/ and fill out the panels. Similar to how Prezi works with the zoom feature.
  • Cool – can embed videos in a panel!
  • Put panels on separate layers.
  • Pause each panel and place the timing on the timeline for the layer/panel.
  • You  can add a motion path.
  • Add click interactivity to view next panel or layers. BRILLIANT!!!
