An Introduction to Logo Movement with Myrtle the Turtle

This catchy song introduces the turtleSpaces Logo movement primitives.

This animation was made inside turtleSpaces, and demonstrates its ability to create animated content.

You can use screen capture software such as ScreenFlow or the built-in SAVEWEBM primitive to export a recording of the screen, and then sync it to your music.

You can also load music in OGG format into turtleSpaces and then work on synchronizing your animation with it in realtime using the SLEEP and WAIT primitives. This animation was done that way. Keep in mind that the animation may play back at different speeds on different computers unless you use the TIME primitive to keep everything locked to timing points!

It took around three hours to create the animation in this video using the Logo programming language. The captions are done by creating a turtle (I named “caption”) and then directing it to create the captions using the CONTROL primitive, eg control “caption [typeset |And I ORBIT all round…|]
