• Animation is the process of displaying still
images in a rapid sequence to create the
illusion of movement.
• It refers to moving images.
• Each can be used to make both 2D or 3D
Types of Animation
• Three main types of Animation:
Traditional animation involves drawing every frame of a film by hand
2. Stop Motion
In this process, animators manipulate and photograph
objects one motion and frame at a time.
3. Computer Generated:
Animators can also use computer software to create films and
models, which is generally faster than the traditional method.
2D animation focuses on creating characters,
storyboards and backgrounds in two-dimensional environments.
2D animation created using computers and software programs such
as Adobe Photoshop, Flash.
These animations may be used in advertisements,
films, television shows, computer games or websites.
Types of 2D Animation
Cel animation is based on changes that occur from
one frame to the next.
Moves an object along a predetermined path on the screen
and the path can be a straight line or have a number of curves.
3D computer animation is a type of animation created by making and
manipulating a digital model in a three-dimensional (3D) graphics program.
3-D Animation involves three steps:
1.Modeling – the process of creating objects and scenes.
2.Animation – the process of defining the object’s motion.
3.Rendering – the final step in creating 3-D animation.
3D animation involves the creation of key frames, which are modified
and adjusted to create a final animation.
