XNA for Silverlight developers: Part 3 + 4 - Animation

Published on Thursday, February 17, 2011 10:34:00 AM UTC in Programming

Part 4 of my article series "XNA for Silverlight developers" has just been published over at Silverlight Show. This is the second and last part about the animation topic. I decided to split the topic by two kinds of animations: transforms, which includes the simpler and built-in possibilities for translate, scale and rotate, and frame-based animation which is based on using a series of sequential images to create the illusion of a fluid motion. You can find the two articles here:

Part 3 – Animation (transforms)

Part 4 – Animation (frame-based)

Both parts offer various code samples including assets for download. Feel free to post any comments here or on Silverlight Show, or to contact me directly for any feedback you want to provide.
