Animations are one of the most popular and artistic videos you see today. Animations started a long time ago when there was no technology, but things have really evolved since the inception of digital techniques. Though we have evolved and the digital landscape has taken over, but the way animations were created in the past is being utilized nowadays.
Today we have so many students pursuing courses in animation and its quite a competitive field. With the growth and discovery of technology we have had quite a variety of animations that one can do. Check out some of the types of animations that have been there since their discovery.
First and foremost, we have simple animations. These one are the first ever animations to be made. It was quite funny then; the idea was that the people could create an animated picture on a page in a book and when the pages were flipped really quick, one could notice the motion of the picture. What was actually the thing is the use of stop motion, no camera at all. Today you can still create them but in more digital form.
Traditional animation is another type of animation ever to have been created. Most of the animated pictures today were made this way. It was, however, a long process. Thousands of pictures were drawn entirely by hand on acetate sheets. Each cel was photographed onto a separate frame of films. Regardless of the fact that, we had problems this kind of animations took into practice the utilization of artistic skill as well as the different artistic styles. Since the introduction of technology, it has been long forgotten because people now rely on technical aspects to create such animated videos.
Computer animations are also types of animations that are being created today. With the invention of the computer, we also had experts influencing animation with that. The essence is that animations are created by using computers digitally. It is more controllable and faster than the traditional animations.
Digital 2D animations have also made their way into the existing types of animations available today. We had the digital 2D but you know technology keeps on evolving today we have the digital 3D animations and many more to come. Another technology is motion capture as animations of this type are coming up. As technology expands we expect more and more sophisticated forms of animations to be created.
