Graphic Design & Digital Media
Project Description: Design some object of your own that moves around the Processing output window. This should be a different object than the ones you created for any previous project. In the spirit of incremental development, be as creative as you can since you have acquired a lot of knowledge and skills by this time. You are also expected to be very efficient in your programming.
- You will develop this program using either functions or objects.
Since some students will begin development before they are comfortable with chapter 8, I am giving you the option of simply using functions or going further with OOP.
- The size of the output window should be at least 500 pixels.
- Incorporate a structured (modularized) design for this sketch using the following programmer-designed functions called from the draw() function.
It doesn't matter what you name your functions, as long as they perform as described below. Also, you may have more than 3 functions if desired.
- drawBackground() – Draws the background for the sketch which could include a background() function call but should additionally implement coding that creates a background of some kind. You can be as elaborate as you wish. (For example, grass and a sun)
- drawObject() – There is no movement in this function. Simply display the object. You might consider renaming this function to reflect whatever object you are drawing (for example if your object is a dog, the function could be called drawDog()
- moveObject() – The object should move in some way.
- Hint: Use the incremental development approach to coding this application; write one function at a time and test it to make sure it works before moving on to the next function
How to Submit:
You will upload a zipped file of the following to OAKS dropbox entitled “Project 1”.
- A 1-3 paragraph write-up describing your program, its inspiration, and how you designed and implemented it. You may also include a brief discussion about your experience working on this project.
- The sketch folder.
