This exercise is designed to be an application of the information learned in Chapter 4 of the Animation Bootcamp course, especially the Anticipation.

The assignment is two-fold:

  • First, animate the CG Cookie logo to scale up, similar to the way the Twitter app does it. Employ the principle of anticipation to make the effect appealing.
  • Second, animate the CG Cookie logo sliding up from the bottom, holding, and sliding back out again. Likewise, use anticipation to make the effect appealing.
