Chapter 7. Animation

Chapter 7. Animation

Animation introduces the concept of time. We recognize that time is passing by observing changes in our world: sunlight moving through the clouds, a beating heart, a ticking clock, bodies dancing to a beat, the steady rhythm of machines, rivers flowing to the sea, the turning cycles of the moon and stars. We also draw conclusions about the passage of time by comparing experience to memory: white hair, a wrinkled brow, an empty glass, an empty house. Time can make the world empty or full, high or low, light or dark, loud or soft, near or far, old or new.

According to Webster, the word animation is based on the Latin verb animare, which means, to give life to. This chapter tells you how to bring objects to life by changing their creation parameters and transforming them over time (Figure 7.1).
