What Does Animation Mean?
Animation has been around since the early 1900s when it was used to create classic animated films such as Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (1906, considered the first example of animation) and The Haunted Hotel (1907). Traditional animation is the process of simulating movement by displaying a series of frames or pictures. In addition to traditional animation, other common types of animation include stop motion (clay animation, puppet animation) and computer animation (2D, 3D). Less common types of animation include sand animation, erasure animation, and pinscreen animation.
