Traditional Animation

Ever seen images that appear as if sketched on a transparent piece of paper infused peg by use colored markers, one frame at time? This is called traditional animation. Animators this types with rough characters so to know the number they need draw for action and be appropriately perceived. Though procedure can costly length, their production allow photographing each frame, creating occasional faster actions animated 24 frames/second speed. technique mainly used personal computers, tablets using special software programs powerful drawing capabilities making it best Disney-style

2D vector-based

Most frequently style. It key-framed produced relatively flat surface. also adopts animations. In fact, same Cel apart from fact when animations in-betweens are complete, frames exposed process known ink-and-paint. During process, animators place thin sheets celluloid containing characters, after which copy celluloid. Eventually, will overlay other due higher transparency celluloid, allowing multiple props character top background.

Characters created in digitally displayed screen, then fused skeleton enables animate models specific uses.

Unlike animations, all should considered always present. The greatest difference type while work 2’s every 2 frames, smooth, stop resembles mistake.
