Animation

ANIMATION

Animation is the process by which it is possible to give movement to drawings or inanimate objects. Whether they are drawings, renders or photographs (3d animation, traditional drawing, Stop Motion figures, etc). Technically, animation comes to be a sequence of images, which when shown consecutively, manage to generate a credible movement effect in our brain.

Animation Types

Animation 2D

La animación 2d digital, es aquella que se realiza mediante técnicas digitales o informatizadas. Aunque el proceso a nivel artístico es el mismo que en la animación tradicional, las herramientas y programas que existen actualmente facilitan el proceso y los recursos, dejando este tipo de producciones al alcance de cualquiera que tenga un ordenador.

Stop Motion

Stop Motion animation is also known as claymation. It is the animation that is made by capturing real objects and materials created with clay, plasticine or any other malleable material. In stop-motion drawings are not animated, but static and immobile objects strategically placed in front of a camera.

Rotoscopia

Rotoscopy is an animation technique that uses the ancient method of placing transparent sheets of acetate or paper on top of a film (sequence of photographs). The objective is to trace the outline of the objects and characters recorded.

Animation 3D

3D Animation is a computerized process used by animators to create sequences of images or renders through programs and applications that simulate three-dimensional visualization. These applications allow the creation and manipulation of polygonal meshes, bone systems (rigging), textures, virtual lighting , simulations, animation, etc.

However, animation is much more than that. Animar has its origin in the Latin “Anima” and whose meaning is “Soul”. Therefore animate consists of giving soul to a character or an object so that it seems that it comes to life, thinks and acts by itself. In short, a 3d, 2d, stop motion, etc. animator (no matter the technique) must have the ability to bring life.

Animate or give soul to a character is a work of pure interpretation or acting, so it has much more to do with an artistic process than a mechanical one. The observation of living beings and how the elements that surround us work is what allows animators to give more credibility to their animations.
