Part of the Computer Science Workbench book series (WORKBENCH)


We showed in Chap. 3 that numerous steps in conventional animation can be assisted or improved by computer. In particular, the computer can be used:
  1. 1.

    To input drawings

  2. 2.

    To produce in-betweens

  3. 3.

    To specify the motion of an object along a path

  4. 4.

    To color the drawings and create a background

  5. 5.

    To synchronize motion with sound

  6. 6.

    To initiate the recording of a sequence on film


These different aspects will be studied in detail.
