    You're Welcome

  2. Came here because my technological limits are preventing me from following my previous ways

  3. Very nice explaining video about different type of animation.
    My son is trying to create different animation videos.
    One of them is –
    Not sure what type of animation is?

  4. 2d animation will always stand out as the greatest of all animation that's why it's traditional it's very vibrant

  5. 5 types? Cel, Stop Motion/Claymation, Cutout, Pixilation, Paint on Glass, Pinscreen, Rotoscoping, Abstraction, Paint on Film, cgi, 2d etc, etc. Bit of a short list you have made and selling animation short.

  6. Iam doing an animation to put in my channel. (Actually it's a reanimate of "four colour" animation) but original is the worst animation I made. reanimate will be the best then that.

  7. Does anyonw know if there are/is tutorials on how to do these awesome Motion graphics examples animations ?

  8. I believe there is another sub category. Draw individual pictures and swap quickly between them using bounce/ease in/ease out. So much quicker and easier.

  9. Are Ghibli's by Hayao Miyazaki and Makoto Shinkai's movies traditional animation ? Shinkai's are incredibly realistic

  10. So i was in animation this year and im going to be in it again for next year bc i was a beginner this year and as soon as he started talking i knew who you were because my teacher had us watch some lessons to get familiar with it and i saw your storyboarding process for my final project, even though my project wasn't really well thought out because it lacked so much story, it was all over the place and i scrapped so many stories, I'm glad i had the chance to understand just how much work gets put into a story๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ‘and although i didn't finish ,my teacher was pleased since i included more dynamic action scenes and i felt a sense of accomplishment๐Ÿ˜” so i thank you

  11. I didn't know there were this many types of animation! I do frame by frame, as you can see here: but I recently started using key frames to make it kind of easier ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Does Monster House count as computer animation? Where they use real actors with a whole bunch of tracking points and loads of cameras? Or is that like.. number 6? ๐Ÿค”

  13. on the idea that 3d animators supposedly have more work to do because they have to account for the body parts even if they're not in the shot while 2d animators dont: 2d animators are still aware of the "things that aren't in the shot", the same things that the 3d animators account for are brought into consideration as well in 2d animation–the body parts that arent in shot are also accounted for and exist in the 2d animator's mind. that's kinda what makes things realistic and proportionate. suggesting that 3d animation is harder because the animator needs to have spatial awareness is a bit much. maybe that wasn't your intention, but your choice of words certainly seem to suggest that.

  14. I want to do traditional animation when older because I working on my art skill more and its fun somtime I no longer show my work on YouTube but it has gotten better I add more frams etc im only 12 so i have time to learn

  16. So Computer animation is like Vidoe games cinematic type. So like Resident Evil Vendetta is computer animation

  17. Stop motion is awesome but I don't have the patience for it. Claymation is cool but it looks rather creepy when done poorly.

  18. 2d animation is not for children under the age of 1-something

  19. What's that type of 2d animation where the movements are fluid, almost like they animated over a real person moving? It's hard to explain…

    Edit: I found it. It's rotoscope animation.

  20. Another new type of animation is also called โ€œStorytime Animationโ€ where technically when people forgot what animation is and just think โ€œoh Iโ€™ll draw a picture and keep that image for a few seconds then move on to another and consider it a frameโ€

  21. Do you have a Instagram so i can dm you a video of this animation ? cause I didnโ€™t see the kind i was looking for in the video

  22. "3D animation is just called animation be cause it is just the most popular"
    While 80% of world animation is based in Japan, where they still use 2D lol,
    thx for the info.

  23. Hello Sir,
    I went through your blog on 5 types of animation.

    Can you please tell me why you excluded full sail university for 3D Animation?

    I hope you reply.
