GRAPHICS PROGRAMMING UNIT PROJECT
DESIGN & IMPLEMENT AN INTERACTIVE ANIMATION
The purpose of the project is to create an interactive animation graphics application in Processing that involves user independent animation as well as user dependent interactivity.
It is up to you to decide what the animation will be—a drawing tool, a short story, a game, a simulation, whatever! Be creative!
A simple example would be to simulate a ball bouncing up and down, and if the user clicks on the ball, then the ball stops bouncing or bounces in a different direction. (Your project should be a bit more complicated than that, but you could start with this idea and build on it.)
COMPLETE ALL OF THE LABS, AND THE PROJECT-2 LABS. THEY WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE SKILLS THAT YOU NEED!!!
Try to get a simple working version up as fast as you can, then go back
and add details and options later (this is called “iterative development”).
Make copies of intermediate versions of your project, just in case your code starts developing in a direction that you don’t like or can’t get to work. Then you can easily go back to a previous intermediate

Grading and Requirements
The project has two parts: (1) design, and (2) application, with the design worth 20% and the application worth 80% in determining your grade for this project.
The design part involves written documentation, to be written using a word processor (e.g., in Word) and submitted as printout (preferably).
The second part is to be written using Processing.
I very strongly recommend that you start by working on the design part first. Draw out your ideas on paper. Think carefully about what you want your application to look like and how you want the user to interact with it.
Think about what the user might do wrong and how you would deal with that. Then, after your design seems solid, start programming.
Describe (in words) the application that you are going to
Plan out what the Processing window will look like, how it will change when it is animated, and what the user will do to interact with
Be sure to include a drawing in your documentation that illustrates your design ideas, as well as instructions for the
Submit a 1-page document that contains all of the information listed
Using Processing, implement the application that you have
Your application must contain the following required elements:
Different shapes (e.g., lines, ellipses, triangles, )
Animation—at least one of the shapes in your application must move around, change shape, or change color,independently
Interactive aspects—the application must respond when the user presses particular keys or moves/clicks the mouse
