A Brief Overview Of Types of Animation

Traditional animation is a kind of hand-drawn animation in which each frame is prepared using hand. In this animation, animators use pencils to draw objects, texts, and characters thus building a storyline that is arranged sequentially to create the illusion of movement.

2D Animation

It is a vector-based animation where different frames are prepared and placed one after the other to create an animation. It is derived from traditional animation.

3D Animation

It is a kind of 3D animation which is prepared by generating images using computer graphics in the series. This animation is both static and dynamic. Also, the characters in 3D animations are digitally modeled on-screen fitted with a ‘skeleton’ that allows animators to animate the models for their use.

Motion Graphics

Motion graphic is the movement of graphic elements or texts used to create the illusion of motion or rotation, and are usually combined with audio for use in multimedia projects.

Stop Motion

Stop motion is another kind of animation that involves the clicking of different pictures which are then played back one after the other and texts and other things are edited making it a complete stop motion graphic.
