Multimedia is the type of media that utilizes a combination of different content
forms, such as text, audio, still images, animation, video and interactivity. Multimedia
is recorded and played, displayed or accessed by information content processing
devices, such as computerized and electronic devices.
2D animation is the sum of figures that are created and/or edited on the computer
using graphics elements. This includes automated computerized versions of traditional
animation techniques such as of tweening, morphing, onion skinning and interpolated
3D animation are digitally modeled and manipulated by an animator. In order to manipulate
a mesh, it is given a digital skeletal structure that can be used to control the
mesh. This process is called rigging. Various other techniques can be applied, such
as mathematical functions.
Animated cartoon films are ones in which individual drawings, paintings, or illustrations
are photographed frame by frame (stop-frame cinematography). Usually, each frame
differs slightly from the one preceding it, giving the illusion of movement when
frames are projected in rapid succession at 24 frames per second.
