Animation Fundamentals

By Alexander Ewing

what is animation
What is Animation

A simulation of movement created by displaying a series of pictures, or frames. Cartoons on television is one example of animation.

Animation on computers is one of the chief ingredients of multimedia presentations. 

The word Animation derives from the Latin wordsAnima meaning life,

Andanimare meaning to breathe life into.

How Does it work

When a person views a moving object in real life, the human brain retains the image of a moving object for longer than that image is actually present. This creates an opportunity to convince the brain's image processing centres that a series of fast, still images are actually moving pictures.

The human brain will perceive motion when watching a series of moving images presented at a speed as slow as 10 frames per second, but the motion will appear jerky.

A rate of 16 images per second creates an impression of a moving image virtually indistinguishable from live motion.

history of animation
History of Animation

Throughout history, people have employed various techniques to give the impression of moving pictures. Cave drawings depicted animals with their legs overlapping so that they appeared to be running. The properties of animation can be seen in Asian puppet shows, Greek bas-relief, Egyptian funeral paintings, medieval stained glass, and modern comic strips.
