  • Entertainment is a primary form of using the animation. It's first aim was to be used in movies, cartoons or short videos. Animation is used to represent the things which doesn't exist in the real life and bring some magic and fiction into movies. Educational animations are the animations created for a purpose of making the learning more interactive and interesting. For example, PowerPoint now has an easy-to-use animation facility that, in the right hands, can produce very effective educational animations.Well-designed animations may help students learn faster and easier. They are also excellent aid to teachers when it comes to explaining difficult subjects. The animation is used in advertisement to give a feeling of reality and aliveness. It also helps to explain the product or service and get to the point quickly. The main benefit of using animation in commercial is to make it interesting and unique. http://www.sollylabs.com/ (animation studio)
