The word “animation,” derived from the Latin word animate, is frequently associated with web and entertainment industries such as film, television, and game design. Animations can also be used to instruct and inform, particularly when a process is communicated more easily through visualization than through the written or spoken word. Animation is comprised of a sequence of static images, strung together to provide the illusion of movement.
2-D and 3-D computer animation today uses a variety of different techniques and technologies ranging from flash to motion capture. When compared to stop-motion or traditional hand drawn cell animation, these modern techniques have the ability to simulate highly complex and far more realistic movement sequences.
