LATEST AWESOMNESS

The third part of the “Creating an Internet Ad” video tutorial series is here - many thanks to Joe Campanaro for putting it together!

If you missed them, here’s Part 1and Part 2. Altogether, the three videos teach you all the steps to designing and publishing a multi-scene animated banner ad that will play everywhere - no Flash, no problems, all HTML5.

You can open the full project in the Animatron Editor to look under the hood, and duplicate it to make changes and build on the original.
