A Brief History Of Animation
Animation is a process where figures are altered to make them appear like moving images. In traditional animation, the images are created by hand on clear celluloid sheets , which are then captured and then displayed on film. Nowadays, the majority of animations are created using computer-generated images (CGI). Computer animation is a very precise 3D animations, while 2D animation software (which could have the appearance typical of animation) is employed for aesthetic reasons as well as low bandwidth or for faster real-time renderings. Other animation techniques employ an approach known as stop motion to three-dimensional and two-dimensional objects such as paper cutouts, clay figurines, or puppets.
The effect of animation is created by a fast sequence of images that barely differ from one another. The illusion, as seen in motion pictures generally--is believed to be due to the phi phenomenon as well as beta motion, however the exact cause is unclear. Analog mechanical animation mediums that rely on the fast presentation of images in sequence are the phenakisticopeand zoetrope as well as the turn book, the praxinoscope and film. Television and video are two popular electronic animation media , which originally were digital, but now work digitally. To be displayed on computers techniques like GIF animation, animated GIF or Flash animation were invented.
Animation is more prevalent than most people realize. In addition to short films, feature films, TV series animation GIFs as well as other media that are dedicated to the display of images in stop motion Animation is also used in video games interactive user interfaces, motion graphics along with visual effects.
Moving image components by simple mechanical means, such as moving images during magic lantern shows can be considered to be animation. The mechanical manipulation of 3D objects and puppets in order to imitate living things has a lengthy history in automata. Electronic automata were made popular in the early days of Disney in the form of animatronics.
Animation is among the most widely-used and ubiquitous kinds of visual communication available present in the world today, ranging from the plethora of TV channels devoted to cartoons , to the title sequences from our most cherished films to the dynamic graphic interfaces on of our smartphones. While the majority of us have some idea of when the process began, when it started, and how it all started but we often overlook the amazing technological wizardry that is available in the present. In this regard we'll take a look at the brief history of the medium's origins through the groundbreaking work of five pioneers in early animation.
French animated cartoonist Emile Cohl is often referred to as "the father of the animated cartoon." According to legend, 1907, at a time when motion-picture production was reaching critical mass, the then 50-year-old Cohl was walking along the street and saw an advertisement for a film evidently taken in one of his cartoon strips. He confronted the director of the studio responsible, Gaumont, in outrage and was immediately hired as a scenarist - the person who generates stories on a single page for films. Between February between 1908 and May 1908 Cohl produced Fantasmagorie which was regarded as to be the first animated film ever created.
In order to create the animation Cohl set each drawing down on a plate of glass that was lit and traced the drawing, highlighting the various changes required to depict movement, over it until he'd created around 700 sketches. Since chalkboard caricaturists were a common feature of entertainments in the vaudeville era The characters in the film appear like they've drawn on a chalkboard however, Cohl actually filmed white lines onto paper, then printed them with negatives so that his drawings appear as chalk sketches.
French filmmaker George Melies is known as the pioneer of cinemagician because of his pioneering use for special effects within cinema. Between 1896 until 1914, he helmed more than 531 films, which ranged from one to forty minutes, typically with single camera effects throughout the entire film. The year 1902 was the first time he was featured in one of his films L'oeuf du the sorcier (The Prolific Egg)--a innovative investigation of multiplication, scale, and transitions that really sealed his status as an "cinemagician" and the father of special effects in film.
Artist and cartoonist Winsor McCay (1869-1964) is often thought of as one of the pioneers in the field of "true" animation.
The film of his 1911, Winsor McCay, the Famous Cartoonist of the N.Y. Herald and His Moving Comics which is also called Little Nemo contains two minutes of pure animation approximately 8:11 and uses sequential hand-drawn illustrations in a unique manner that is not found in earlier films.
British filmmaker J.Stuart Blackton is believed to be responsible for making an whiteboard animation that was the very first of its kind in America and was the first person in the world to employ stop-motion to tell stories. The year was 1896 and Blackton as a reporter from the New York Evening World, was assigned to talk to Thomas Edison about his brand new Vitascope invention. In a time where winning reporters was crucial for success Edison invited Blackton into Black Maria, his studio-cabin and filmed an impromptu video of Blackton drawing sketches that was drawn by Edison himself. Blackton became so enthralled by this technology that he created an organization called American Vitagraph Company and began filmmaking, beginning in 1900 with The Enchanted Drawing in 1900.
Although Muybridge's work English photographer Eadweard Muybridge isn't animated but his studies of animal locomotion are among the first visual experiments in moving images. They laid the foundations of later forms of videography.
Ram Mohan. Ram Mohan is an Indian animator, title designer , and design instructor, who is also known as the father of Indian Animation and was a veteran of the Indian animation industry. He began his career at the Cartoon Films Unit, Films Division of India, Government of India in 1956.
