Reading Response: Time and motion

When an object moves, it moves in both time and space. Movement can be created in an optical illusion, or in an animation. As designers we work with both motion and 2-D graphics, like vectors and bitmaps, to create a viable design. An animation for example, begins with the creation of storyboards, much like the ones we are currently creating in class. All important moments of the animation are documented and planned ahead, before creating the final product. Animators must think ahead, all of the variables are important when creating a fluid movement or animation.

Color, depth, position, rotation, scale, shape, and transparency are all components of an animation that can be changed, and it is a combination of these components that create a successful flow of motion.
