what is animation

Animation is a moving image that is obtained by showing several images in rapid succession. The first animations were made by drawing the desired images on a few sheets of paper and quickly swapping the paper or turning it into a circle.

Today, computer technology allows both vector and pixel-based animations. Animation films can be categorized into techniques commonly used in 3D, 2D, stop motion, cut-out, etc.

Animators are artists who specialize in creating animation. The analog media (including cel animations) and digital ones like,  animated GIF, Flash animations and digital video formats, can be captured on a motion picture film, video tape or on a totally digital format.

Animation methods include traditional animation techniques and stop motion animation of two- and three-dimensional objects, cut-out, puppets, and clay figures. 3D animation uses computer aided graphics.
