    1.) Open a new Swish movie. File->New

    2.) Click on the 'Ellipse' tool located to the left of the Swish Movie Stage.

    3.) Having the Ellipse tool selected move your mouse to the Swish Stage and

    click and hold on the Left Mouse button while holding the 'Shift' key anddrag to make your circle the size you would like and let go of the left

    mouse button before the Shift button when you have the circle the size you

    want it at. (Holding the Shift key will ensure that your circle is a

    complete sphere.

    4.) With your circle selected, open your 'Shapes' panel. It should

    automaticly be shown after you make the circle.

    5.) When you have it open, go to were the 'Line' box is and click the little

    arrow located beside the straight line. Choose 'None' from the menu thatcomes down.

    6.) Now you'll want to add the 'Radial Gradient' to your circle. To do so,

    still staying in your Shapes tab, go down to were the 'Fill' section is andclick were it says 'Solid' on the menu that comes up, go down to 'Radial


    7.) You will notice that your circle now will most likly be a Black dot in

    the middle that is fading out. That is ok you'll just need to change the

    colors. You will notice that there is now a Gradient bar below in the fillsection, there will also be 2 little triangles sticling out along the Grey

    part of the gradient bar. You will use these you change your color, (See

    Next Step To Change Color)

    8.) The left triange that is sticking out will change the color of the

    little dot located in the center of your circle. The Right triangle will

    change the outer color of the circle. For now we will change the circle

    colors to the following:

    Left Triangel-> WhiteRight Triangel-> Grey

    9.) You should now have a circle with a faded white dot in the middle andgrey along the outsides. Were now going to move the little white dot in the

    middle to the top left corner of the circle to give it more of a 3d effect.

    sq's around the new circle.

    Layering Animated Text on Swish 2.0


    Objective: This is a more advanced tutorial which will teach you how to create more

    appealing effects using Swish v2.0. Swish limits the effects they install with the

    software. This tutorial will teach you how to use there effects to create entire new effects

    that are more appealing.

    1) Create a new document on Swish.

    2) Move your cursor to the top of your screen and click the "T" on the toolbar. This will

    insert a place where you can enter your text.

    3) Type in whatever text you are going to want to say. For the

    purposes of this tutorial we are using "Developing Webs".

    4) Once your text is typed in and your size and font are adjusted

    click on the text once to make it active. Then go up to the top of

    the screen and click edit and move down to copy object. This willduplicate the object or in this case making it a second layer.

    your Swish screen and click Insert and scroll down to effect and over to Fade Out.

    8) At this point you should have to of the same texts, with a different effect for both of

    them. You can view there effects by looking on the movie timeline above yourworkspace. Once you have this timeline active make the effects look similar to the ones

    show here.

    9) Now after your timeline looks like the one shown here, you can view your effect byclicking your play button.

    Step 2 - Click on your first object, in my case i choose the circle. Once clicked, go to

    your 'Shapes' tab. (it might already be there) and click on the button called Solid. Choose

    Radial Gradient(Radial gradient is for round objects and Linear is for straight object)

  • 8/9/2019 Swish Traning


    Step 3 - Since you've chosen radial gradient its time to change the colors to your liking

    and take off your outline, as u can see being done in the shapes tab. Once your outline

    and colors are done, you want to move your radial gradient slightly to the top left to giveit a 3d look. You can do this by clicking on your 'Fill Transform' button. Doing so will

    give u a round outline with blue squares. You are now able to move it.

    Step 4 - Now choose your rectangle. In your shapes tab click the solid button once again

    and choose Linear gradient. You will then noticed that your colors that you used from thecircle are the same colors used here. That's fine, you can change that if you would like


    Step 5 - Click your 'Fill Transform' button once again and move your gradient to the right

    slightly if you want. You can go ahead and play with the positioning of your gradient.And the outline on the rectangle is optional. To take your outline off, click the rectangle

    and go to the shapes tab and click on the line drop down and choose none.

    is working. Click File->Test->In browser and click on the text you madeearlier. If your default email program comes up you've got it complete. Just
