Animation is the process of creating the illusion of motion and change by rapidly displaying a series of static images that minimally differ from each other. This is achieved by creating a sequence of individual frames or images, which, when played in quick succession, create the illusion of motion.
Animation can be used to bring still images or drawings to life, create special effects, or to tell a story.
Animators use a variety of techniques, including traditional hand-drawn animation, computer-generated imagery (CGI), stop-motion animation, and others, to create their work. Animation is commonly used in film, television, video games, and other media to create a wide range of visual effects, including character animation, special effects, and motion graphics. The process of creating an animation involves careful planning, storyboarding, and scripting to create a cohesive and engaging narrative. Sound design, music, and voiceover work may also be incorporated to further enhance the final product.
