Types Of Animation



We are all aware of the term ‘animation’. Today, the use of animation has become vast and has not limited to just movies and cartoons. Animation is being used in marketing products or architecture etc.

We can divide animation in 5 forms:-
Traditional Animation

Another name of Traditional animation is Cell Animation. This requires a light box which helps the animator to draw every single frame by hand to create a sequence. It was the process used for most of the productions throughout the 20th century.


2D Animation

“2D” means two-dimensional space. This includes characters, creatures, FX and backgrounds. This is created by drawing the sequence together over time. Before it was used for films and cartoons but now the market has increased as most of the mobile games and TV commercials use this. This form of animation is cheaper than 3D animation. It is an all high time in demand. It’s expected that Netflix and Amazon Prime are going to invest a huge amount in animation soon.

3D Animation

3D means three-dimensional space.3D animation is the art of using motion to bring characters, props, and more to life for TV shows, movies and games. Some of the most used animation software are Autodesk MayaAutodesk 3Ds MaxBlenderCinema 4DBrush, and Light Wave 3D. A career in animation is one of the most lucrative and most-sought-after courses these days

Motion Graphics

Motion graphics are pieces of animation or digital footage which create the illusion of motion or rotation and are usually combined with audio for use in multimedia projects and also to create ads, title sequences for movies.

Stop Motion animation 

Stop motion is an animated film making technique in which objects are physically manipulated in small supplements between individually photographed frames so that they will appear to display independent motion when the series of frames is played back.
