2D Animation Production and How it Happens

Children falling under the age group wherein they are old enough to understand their surroundings but still too young to attend school are often made to watch television as a means to keep them occupied while the mothers get by with their daily chores. In fact we all have watched cartoons and can remember our favourites which were mostly in 2D animations.

Making 2D animations is a very long process which involves drawing each frame of the film by hand. Since the human eye can easily detect any gaps in motion, all films (animated or regular movies) are actually made up of photographs that move at a speed of 24 frames per second. In that sense the movement from one picture to the other is just a fraction of a second therefore to the normal eye it looks like it is in continuous motion. Any difference between two frames allows for smoother motion.

Similarly, 2D animation requires 24 images per second. Traditionally all frames were drawn by hand therefore making the full length projects both time consuming and expensive. To fix this, CELL animation was developed in which each character in the frames were made on separate acetate films which would be piled on to create a scene. In this scenario, the stills of the background required to be made only once hence reducing a considerable amount of work. Nowadays, these animations are made on computers which have made it quicker and inexpensive. So make the most of this easy resource and employ an animation production house now to help make things better for your business.
