What is Animation?

    Animation can be defined as the process or tool of bringing life to sketches and characters. Animation is a type of optical illusion. It involves the appearance of motion caused by displaying still images one after another. It is the rapid display of a sequence of images of 2-D or 3-D artwork or model positions in order to create an illusion of movement. Other common animation methods apply a stop motion technique to two and three-dimensional objects like paper cutouts, puppets or clay figures. It is an art form in which inanimate objects are brought into life by sequencing the drawn images. Visual effects (VFX) are created by combining real life images with animation using software. An animation designer utilizes the latest computer technology to create images and effects for television, movies, websites and video games.
