Animation is the creating a timed sequence or series of graphic images or frames together to give the appearance of continuous movement. ASP (Active Server Page): A dynamically generated web page, generally using ActiveX scripting. When a browser or a search engine spider requests an ASP page from a server, the server generates the web page with HTML code and gives it to the browser or spider. Anti-Aliasing: Smoothing or blending the transition of pixels in an image. Anti-aliasing the edges on a graphic image makes the edges appear smooth, not jagged.
The creation of animated characters, objects, and other visual effects by computer. Computer-generated animation, which provides faster results and requires less manpower, is used in most visual media, from multimedia games to motion pictures.
Simulated movement created by displaying a series of pictures (or frames). Cartoons at the movies or on TV are types of animation. Computer animation is very important in multimedia presentations.
A movie. A sequence of related images viewed in rapid succession to see and experience the apparent movement of objects. [KEL93
The process of developing the actions (poses, timing, motion) of objects. Maya offers several animation methods, including keyframe animation, path animation, nonlinear character animation, and motion capture animation.
The appearance of an object moving. Powerpoint has many built in animations such as, Fly-In or Wipe.
Slide technique which creates an illusion of movement when used in rapid sequence.
Movement created for a 3D model with bones that allows it to move in game. The Animations are stored in .PSA files and several can be imported for a single skeletal mesh.
the illusion of movement and/or bringing to life of inanimate objects or images. Objects are photographed or created one frame at a time. The frames are then replayed in rapid succession to simulate realistic movement. Applications range from flying 2-D or 3-D logos to feature length animated films or cartoons.
A process of creating movement of images on-screen.
a collection of images called frames that, when played one after another, create the illusion of movement.
A set of pictures simulating movement when played in series.
The process of adding movement to objects, textures, lighting, and camera. These are based from frames in a timeline where interpolated key frames control object movement through calculus function curves.
A sequence of visualizations in which some feature of the data is changing. The sequence of the visualizations are shown in rapid succession to mimic motion. Commonly used for time sequenced data to display temporal changes in the system. However, this can also be done for spatial changes.
An effect that brings inanimate objects to life. It is done by shooting a subject in a series of slightly different shots, each lasting a very short time.
Technique by which inanimate objects seem to come alive by flashing a series of minutely changed images, called “cells,” at a rate which the brain interprets as movement. See also, Cell and Persistence of Vision.
A series of graphic images pieced together in a timed sequence to give the appearance of continuous movement.
The creation of the illusion of movement by presenting a series of images which represent discrete moments in sequential time. The mind makes a connection between those discrete frames and interprets them as smoothly moving over a period of time.
a form of filmmaking in which inanimate objects or individual drawings are photographed frame by frame with each frame differing slightly from the previous frame. When these frames are strung together and projected at the standard speed of twenty-four frames per second, the result is the objects or drawings move and hence seem "animated."
a sequence of graphics that appears to users as if the images move. Also see animation programs.
Allows recording of a few frames. By using an inanimate object and by changing its position between shots the recording can appear as though the subject is moving.

Giving movement to something; the process of making moving cartoons or films that use cartoon imagery.
A style of filming that creates movement from inanimate objects, whether they be sequences of drawingsâ€”as with a Disney filmâ€”plasticine puppets or merely moving diagrams. Usually achieved by exposing the film or videotape a few frames at a time and moving the drawings or models between exposures. Increasingly animation is done digitally with computer-generated images.
Process of taking series of still frames of slightly different drawings or objects which, when presented at normal speed, give the illusion of motion.

A technique of film making where drawings or puppets are photographed in sequence to give the illusion of movement.
It is referred to an image that changes over time. A simple example is Abacus logo where the red dot is moving up and down every several seconds.
The making of inanimate objects to appear mobile. This can be done by exposing one or two frarnes of movie film and then moving the objects slightly and exposing one or two more frames, etc. When the movie is projected, the objects will appear to have moved by themselves.
In this document, an "animation" refers to content that, when rendered, creates a visual movement effect automatically (ie, without explicit user interaction). This definition of animation includes video and animated images. Animation techniques include: graphically displaying a sequence of snapshots within the same region (eg, as is done for video and animated images). The series of snapshots may be provided by a single resource (eg, an animated GIF image) or from distinct resources (eg, a series of images downloaded continuously by the user agent). scrolling text (eg, achieved through markup or style sheets).

The process of photographing drawings or objects a frame at a time; by changing a drawing or moving an object slightly before each frame is taken, the illusion of motion is realized.
The creation of a series of graphic images or frames so that they have the look of moving continuously. This can include simple animation (created using .gif files), or more complex animations using Flash.

The use of computer instructions to simulate motion of an object on the screen through gradual, progressive movements.
The rapid sequential presentation of slightly differing graphics to create the illusion of motion. Animation can have greater purpose in illustrating a process than a static visual, but it requires more information to be processed by the computer and thus higher bandwidth. Compare to audio, video, text, and graphic.
Works created by recording a series of still images, such as drawings, objects, or posed people. When played back, the static images combine to simulate motion, creating the impression of movement. Includes cartoons, clay animation (Claymation), computer animation, puppet animation (including Puppetoons), cameraless animation (images drawn directly onto film stock), and time-lapse animation..
