After you have placed your graphic in the
right spot you can choose to animate it or give it sound, even play a movie.
This makes the images on your card come to life. When you place your
graphic on your card and click the mouse a prompt will come up titled graphic
appearance. It should look similar to this depending on what version
of HyperStudio you are using.
Click on "Actions" to choose the action that you would like your graphic to do. You will then be asked what type of action you would like. For our purposes we will choose "Play Animation" But you can also do "Play a Sound" or "Play a Movie." You will then be asked where you would like to get your animation from, choose disk library. You can then choose between either HyperStudio Art or HyperStudio Animation. We will choose HyperStudio Art. Then from the "Art" file choose computers again and encircle the mouse. HyperStudio will then encircle your graphic with that familiar red-dashed line.
Next click "Ok" then you will see the mouse come up on a blank card. Don't worry your graphic will come back in a minute. Now move your mouse in a way that also moves the mouse on the screen at the same time. This path that you make will be the path that it will travel when you click on your graphic. Your screen should now look like this.
You can now click ok. You will then be able to test out your animation. The next prompt that comes up should look familiar, just click "Done." Another familiar prompt will come up, again click "ok."
You should now see your card with your graphic back up, I told you not to worry. To view your animation click on the hand on your tool bar.
Now with the hand click on your graphic. You should see the mouse graphic move on your screen following the path that you created. How much fun was that?!!! Now you can play around and try out different animations and graphics. Just follow the same directions for this one.
