Example: refers to the way our eyes retain images for a split second longer than they actually appear, making a series of quick flashes appear as one continuous picture.
Example: what appears to be continuous motion is actually a series of many different frames. Each frame shows the same graphic with a tiny amount of position change to simulate motion.
Computer Assisted Animation
The computer is used to make the animation process quicker and easier. it usually involves 2-D images that can be hand-drawn and scanned into the computer or drawn directly into the computer using graphics tablets. The images are positioned into keyframes containing the most important movements.
Computer Generated Animation
All images, objects and animation are created on the computer. Tyically uses 3-D images. It adds two steps to the animation process. 1. modeling-process of creating a wireframe structure of the 3-D object and scenes. 2.Rendering-process of applying colors, textures, shadows, transparency, etc.
Examples: also called vector animation. An object follows a path which is a line, or vector, inserted by the animator.
a shortened term for metamorphosing. a technique in which one image is gradually turned into another.
Programming or scripting-Based Animation
Also called mouseovers. when the mouse is moved over an image it changes to a different image so quicklythat it looks as if the change has occurred in a single instant. they are created in scripting languages.
Stop Motion Animation
Processof manipulating real-world objects and photographing them one frame at a time. very popular method with the film industry until computer generated imagery became possible. now used mainly in clay animation.

used to store frequently used graphics, movie clips, and buttons.
the vertical red marker in the timeline that shows which frames are created between the keyframes that are needed to create that illusion of movement.
dragging the playhead across the timeline in order to preview an animation
an animation process in which frames are created between the keyframes that are needed to create the illusion of movement.
the process of reducing the space required to store data by efficiently encoding the content.

the amount of data that can be transmitted over a network in a given amount of time.
a procedure for transmitting media files so they can start playing as soon as a computer begins receiving them rater than waiting for the complete files to download first.
