Creating Entertainment One Frame at a Time:

Dipper Traditional AnimationTraditional Animation:

Traditional animation is usually hand-drawn and this process

was used for most animated films of the 20th century.

Traditional animation is first drawn on paper. Then to create

an illusion of movement, each drawing is slightly altered

from the one before it. Today, traditional animation uses its

traditional methods, but is aided by computers in certain areas.

This gives the animator new tools not available that could not be

achieved using old techniques.[s]

(Shown right is the use of traditional techniques for animation.

This certain character is from Disney's Gravity Falls)


Stop-Motion Animation:

Stop-Motion includes puppet animation, clay-mation, cutout

animation, and more. Stop-Motion animation is defined as the

creation of animation by physically manipulating real-world

objects and photographing them one frame at a time. [s]

(Pictured right is a animation from the stop-motion animated movie Coraline.

styles. There is 2D animation that focuses on image manipulation

and 3D aniimation that builds virtual worlds in which characters

move and interact. [s]
