Adobe Introduction to Animation
Animation comes from the Latin words “anima” which means “life” and “animare” which means “to breathe life into” Animation consists of still images (called “frames”) with slight differences between them. When viewed together in a sequence, they give the illusion of motion, like a flipbook. When thinking about Animation projects, what first comes to mind? Movies and cartoon shows are what people tend to think of first, as they’re the most mainstream. Animation also encompasses: Video Games/Interactive media Reconstructing events (for courtroom, education or television) Education, help explain difficult concepts in a visual way, such as medicine or science.

Adobe Flash/Animate is an animation and interactive media industry standard software. With it, we can create animation projects such as short films, commercials and even big projects such as television shows. While it is capable of being the only software used for all parts of an animated project, it’s not necessarily a compositing, video editing or sound software. Thus, it’s best utilized with other software such as Premiere and After Effects for animated projects. Flash is capable of both frame-by-frame animation, as well as other, more complex puppeting animation. However, while it has some camera functionality, it’s rather limited with it and again if you’d like to imply 3D space you’re best off including other software with more powerful camera features and manipulation, such as After Effects. However, what makes Flash different from other animation software is that it’s also built for interactivity, and with it you can create interactive projects, websites (though it’s a risky program to use for websites because of SEO), e-cards and video games
