Chapter 7. Animation > Keyframing

Keyframing

When you view a sequence of images in rapid succession, a physiological phenomenon called persistence of vision occurs, in which each image persists in your eyes and brain until the next image takes its place. This creates the illusion of continuous motion that we call animation.

In animation, images that you play back in sequence are called frames. The faster the frames play, the smoother the motion appears to be. Common playback rates are 15, 24, and 30 frames per second, or fps. That adds up to 900, 1440, or 1800 frames per minute of animation!
