This is where we design the illustrations and create smooth animations that bring the animations to life, making learning more engaging and fun!
A difficult part of the animation process is determining what you want to do with your work. With so many different ways to create content and so many types of content to create, the animation process may seem daunting. Fortunately, we can break it down into 5 main styles of animation.
The five types of animation include motion graphic animation, 2-dimensional character animation, 2-dimensional animatics (or “whiteboard” animation), 3-dimensional animation, and mixed media animations. Mixed media includes screen-capture videos and live-action footage used alongside animation, which can help emphasize important information.
Of course, different styles of animation have their benefits. For example, 3D animation is great at depicting to-scale models of complex machinery, animatics are best for casual content, and motion graphics specialize in adding visual aids to an explanation of complex topics.
