Background[edit | edit source]

  • Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion on the display by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion — as in motion pictures in general — is a powerful teaching tool, especially in sports.
  • Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation.

Details[edit | edit source]

Animation can be recorded with either analogue media, a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, digital media, including formats with animated GIF, Flash animation and digital video. To display animation, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used along with new technologies that are produced.

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second.
