Introduction

When you add speech to your animation you need to consider carefully what you will say and pace out the dialogue so that the characters aren't talking over each other.

Task I

Watch the tutorial below, notice in the first dialogue between the character there is a lot of text on one scene. Then note how the pace changes giving each character an opportunity to speak. When you have finished click the back button in your browser to return to this page.

Here is the menu for speech bubbles with many options to choose from. If you click on the speech bubble you can fill them in with color. Remember when you give your character a speech bubble, be sure to make them talk (this option is located in the "actions").

Task II

Begin a dialogue with your characters, remembering some of the important design components of text bubbles.

  • If possible use only one speech bubble per scene.
  • Keep text short.
  • Make sure your characters are "talking" when they have a speech bubble.
  • Use color to enhance the look of your speech bubble.
