2d animation, or a product of animation,created when 2dimages are rapidly sequenced tocreate the illusion of lifelike motion, as in traditional drawn animation,cel animation, or computer-generated vector graphics.
2D animation focuses on creating characters, storyboards, and backgrounds in two-dimensional environments. Often thought of as traditional animation, the figures can move up and down, left, and right.
An animated scene starts with one picture, which is referred to a frame. The next frame is a picture that is slightly superior a few milliseconds in time. After hundreds or thousands of these frames are flashed on a screen in rapid sequence, they give the illusion of a moving picture.
The mainstream of the animated element movies and short animated skits today are created with 3D animation, and this is a quickly growing industry.
