Animation began as a series of hand-drawn images. Today, computers are used to create both 2D and 3D animation.

what is animation
What Is Animation?
  • Animation is the creation of simulated movement by using a series of still images.
  • The zoetrope and similar toys from the 1800s led to the development of motion pictures.
types of animation
Types of Animation
  • Hand-drawn animation
  • Stop-motion animation
  • Computer animation
  • Motion-capture animation
hand drawn animation
Hand-Drawn Animation
  • Each drawing is slightly different from the next.
  • The drawings are photographed.
  • Each drawing makes up one frame in a film.
stop motion animation
Stop-Motion Animation
  • A model is posed, photographed, and then adjusted slightly for the next shot.
  • Models may be created from clay, from rubber skin over a moveable metal frame, or entirely on the computer.
computer animation
Computer Animation
  • Computer animation software can be used to create an animated scene, a cartoon, a video game, or even a full-length movie.
  • Software is available for two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) animation.
motion capture animation
Motion-Capture Animation
  • Magnetic: Sensors placed on an actor’s body measure magnetic fields created by a transmitter.
  • Optical: Video cameras track the motion of light-emitting diodes or reflective markers placed on the joints of the actor’s body.
  • Electro-mechanical devices resembling an exoskeleton are worn by the actor.
where is animation used
Where Is Animation Used?
  • TV and movies
  • Web sites
  • Video games
animation for tv and movies
Animation for TV and Movies
  • Storyboards show the action and dialog.
  • Characters, props, and sets are created with 3D modeling software.
  • Key frames show the beginning and ending point in an action sequence. Computers generate the “in-between” frames needed to simulate motion.
  • Shading, lighting, and rendering add realism.
animation for web sites
Animation for Web Sites
  • GIF format is a simple sequence of animated still pictures.
  • FlashTM software produces sophisticated animations.
  • Dynamic HTML can be used to produce high-quality animations.
animation for video games
Animation for Video Games
  • The story line is created.
  • Characters and backgrounds are designed, and storyboards are prepared.
  • Characters are programmed with behaviors.
  • The game is tested, and flaws are corrected.
  • The game is marketed.
