Animation Through The Ages
WHAT IS ANIMATION • Animation is a group of moving pictures to make an object or a character to look like it is moving for example a stickman walking along a road. • Animation is a easy way to represent reality. It is also a easy way to show emotion to others from any age and to show a point to others. • For example if you show a fire safety cartoon to young children they are more likely to watch it and learn the safety issues of fire.
TYPES OF ANIMATION • 2 D and 3 D • Hand drawn • A series of images put on a slide • Moving pictures
Hand drawn (Cel) drawn It is when you have to draw every frame by hand it is another traditional way. Drawn on a transparent sheet for hand drawn traditional animation. Also you can use paint to do the animation.
The Flip Book The flip notes are created by using a number of sheets of paper stuck together. you draw a image on the corner of a book all the pages there will be a drawn. An example of a flip book would be a stick man walking.
Animated Cartoon What is a animated cartoon? Animated cartoon is characters moving and talking for a T. V. program. Traditional cartoons would be drawn and now we have modern animation which lets us to create more smooth around the edges. Software like flash.
Animation process Design through story boards You draw it on paper You develop it on Adobe Flash And then you make it into a movie and test it and modified it if needed.
GIF Stands for Graphics Interchange format Is a group of images shown how to be played by being put them what whey they are put in order. Are a small file size smaller than bitmap.
DHTML Instead of having basic buttons on a website you can have dynamic ones that light up when you hover it. It also allows you to add a gif to a page. DHTML is a website language
XHTML It is another website language. It too also allows you to create a web page.
Java applets They are used to create web animation. It is an application but a small one which gives it its name which is applet. Applets aren't complete software applications, they work only in conjunction with a browser.
Optical illusion Sometimes referred as persistence of vision It makes you think that animation is happening when your mind is taking in a image moving fast that there is animation, For example Thaumatrope Another example would be flash, when you see a stick man running you can she the previous frames.
Claymation was a old way to show cartoons and animation back in the 1980 s It was a more traditional way of showing animation. Is one of the famous styles of stop motion. For example Pingu the old Claymation animation
Stop motion Stop motion is when you have to stop the character in the animation and move him a ting bit each time It is the traditonial versoin of stopmotion The modern stopmotion is flash as in each frame you have to move the character a wee bit each time to make him look like that they are walking
Frame rate That if you go to fast it can see the previous frames. Every frame on the frame rate would be like flicking a page in a flick book. The automatic speed for frames is 24 frames per second it will always need adjusted for animation.
Frames They are like pages on a flip book Each frame can hold a different movement on a image
Key Frame A key frame is a frame in flash that lets you see the previous page in flash A sequence of key frames defines which movement the viewer will see
Onion skinning is when you want to make your animation move and that you can go back to your previous frame and you can change any changes that is needed. With out it we could not see or previous actions.
