The Work of Animation Basics

The basics:
2D drawn animation consists of a series of drawings shot one after another and

played back to give the illusion of movement. This animation can be played back
in a number of ways.

  1. In the form of a 'flipbook' ( basically a pile of drawing in sequence, bound
       together and flipped with the thumb ) .

  2. The drawing could be shot on film one drawing at a time with a movie camera
       and played back using a cinema projector.

  3. They could be shot on a video camera and played back with a video player.

  4. They Could be shot wiyh a video camera attached to a computer and played
        back on the same computer using an animation program.

  5. Or they can be scanned into the computer and played back.
