Chapter 10. Animating Frame by Frame > Frame-by-Frame Animation

Frame-by-Frame Animation

Finally, let's explore the actual application of an animation. Frame-by-frame animation is a relatively simple concept—similar to single-cell stills that run together into a movie. This animation technique is applicable in certain cases—when animating a cartoon for example. But the method is not used for other types of animation like moving an object from one point on the stage to the next. There is a much more efficient way to effect this kind of animation, covered in Chapter 11, "Animating with Interpolated Motion."

Start by designating a single frame as a keyframe and drop a picture that you want to animate on the stage. Make sure it takes up several frames—the first one being the opening keyframe.
