ANIMATION The basic definition of the word “animate” is referring to the concept of bringing something to life, or mimicking to life. In the multimedia term animation is the quick display from a sequence of numerous images whether from 2-D or 3-D model in different position to make an optical illusion of movement
CEL-animation Cell Animation is the oldest and historically the most popular form of animation. Cell Animation is a technique in which the figures to be animated are drawn and painted on cells, placed over a background, and photographed frame by frame.
A cell (short for celluloid) is a blank clear plastic sheet used by an artist to paint an animated character or object based on the animator’s original pencil drawing. The cels are then placed over a background and photographed in sequence to produce an illusion of life in the completed film or cartoon. The end result of cel animation is distinctively different, creative and appealing.

2D-ANIMATION The creation of moving pictures in a two-dimensional environment 2D animation figures are created and/or edited on the computer using 2D bitmap graphics or created and edited using 2D Vector graphics.
2D Animations is a series of images viewed one after the other in a very short time that creates an illusion of movement. 2D animation has helped to simulate actions and movements that give the user a realistic experience.

3D-Animation Basically the term of 3D animation is referring to the making of moving pictures in the three dimensional-computer generated digital environment.
In an old fashion 2D animation, each sequence picture are drawn manually by hand with subtle changes from one sequence to another. So if the sequence pictures are shown, it will generate the illusion of movement. But with the 3D animation, all of the sequence pictures are made with the help of the computer from the sketch until the finish product (full animation).
Making of 3D animation In the making of 3D animation, the process will require three step to accomplish it.
The first ones is the modeling, where the needed 3D object will be created base on the scenario. The second ones are layout and animation, that’s mean to determined the position of each object in the specific scene or environment. And the last step is the rendering; this is where the animator will give the animation a full detail, such as, coloring, texturing, shadow, lighti ng, voice adding and many other details.
3D-MODELING The 3D specialists can develop the model taking into consideration the mesh count to create models of low polygon mesh. With the right blend of expertise and creativity, our team draws out all the dimensions of the model in terms of height, weight and depth with accuracy. We have the expertise to add extra value to your product by bestowing effects that enhance the look of the products with different lighting and shadow effects.
3D Simulations 3D Simulations are the new age demonstration and visualization tools that have significant role to play in marketing, training and entertainment. It has also revolutionized the way the movie making and the game development with its mind-blowing effects resulting in complete immersing experience. Visual simulation provides convincing and effective solutions for the visual representation of an environment or functioning of a machine or a process.
Flash animation Flash Animation is becoming one the best tools to add dynamic content to your projects. Using a variety of techniques, it is now possible to make low bandwidth, high quality 2D games and movies for direct online use (or others). 2D Flash animation software has become one of the most popular and widely distributed plug-ins on the internet today.
2D using flash 2D animation using flash can produce sophisticated presentations, demonstra tions, simulations and stories. It can add drama and excitement to any work.
Flash cartoon A Flash animation or Flash cartoon is an animated film which is created using Adobe Flash or similar animation software and often distributed in the .swf file format. Flash animations are typically distributed by way of the World Wide Web, in which case they are often referred to as Internet cartoons, online cartoons, or webtoons. A Flash animation is distinguished from a Webcomic, which is a comic strip distributed via the Web, rather than an animated cartoon.

CONCLUSION Society is well served by computer animation. It is an industry that combines art and technology to entertain, educate and inform us. Working on this paper resulted in my realization that computer animation is everywhere – in the movies we watch, in the commercials we see, in animated cartoons on televisions, on the internet, in our workplace, from the jury box in a trial, in the doctor’s office and on our cell phones.
