Chapter 8. Frame-by-Frame Animations

Chapter 8. Frame-by-Frame Animations

Frame-by-frame animation was the traditional form of animation used before the days of computers. Live-action movies are really a form of frame-by-frame animation. The movie camera captures motion by snapping a picture every so often. Animation simulates motion by showing drawings of objects at several stages of a motion.

Traditional animators, such as those who worked for the early Walt Disney or Warner Bros. studios from the 1930s through the 1960s, had to create hundreds of images, each one slightly different from the next, to achieve every movement of each character or element in the cartoon. To turn those drawings into animations, they captured the images on film, putting a different image in each frame of the movie.
