2D Animation

Character design: A Character Designer is an artist that creates new, original characters a purpose. It can be a character based on a definition from a story or script as would be the process in Feature Films, TV Series, Video Games, Children’s books, Web animation, Comic books, Comic strips, or even Licensing or Toy Design.

Digital animation: Computer animation is the process used for generating animated images. The more general term Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI), encompasses both static scenes and dynamic images, while computer animation only refers to the moving images.

Digital video: A simulation of movement created by displaying a series of pictures, or frames. Cartoons on television are one example of animation. ... Whereas video takes continuous motion and breaks it up into discrete frames, animation starts withindependent pictures and puts them together to form the illusion of continuous motion.

Stop motion animation: Stop Motion Animation is a technique used in animation to bring static objects to life on screen. This is done by moving the object in increments while filming a frame per increment. When all the frames are played in sequence it shows movement. Clay figures, puppets and miniatures are often used in stop motion animation as they can be handled and repositioned easily.

Web animation: Web animations are often saved as GIF, CSS, SVG, WebGL or video. They can be anything from a simple underline that appears when you hover over a word to a full-screen video or background image. As with any other design technique, animations can be subtle or they might be in your face and hard to avoid.
