What are 2-D animations
2-D stands for 2 dimensional, in animation which means that the animated objects are controlled in 4 directions, Up & Down (Y-axis), Left & Right (X-axis). This is the most basic type of animation that is used in many applications such as cartoons, advertising materials, educational and work presentations, games, and many others. These are effective marketing tools as they have audio-visual and dynamic effects to offer to the viewer. All these features nominate this form of media creation as the go-to tool for entrepreneurs to use in advertisements and presentations.
What is the most popular software for creating 2-D animations?
With the technological improvements and the easy availability of software and electronic tools, digital design and animation design have become much easier and accessible to everyone. Many programs are used in creating animations, some of the popular ones are Adobe Photoshop, ProCreate, Adobe AfterEffect, Blender, SideFX Houdini, and many more paid and free-to-use tools and programs.
What are the stages of producing 2-D animations?
First stage: includes identifying the idea of the video and then converting this idea into a narrative or dialogue text, designing characters, identifying colors and backgrounds that are suitable to the content of the video, and then recording the necessary audio material, thus determining the visual and audio material that the audience will receive in addition to determining the dynamic framework of the video.
The second stage is the animation-making phase by producing scenes, coordinating text, colors, and backgrounds with the movement of sketches and their sequence. After the direction of the scenes and visual and musical background coordination, the raw video is ready but needs to be adjusted and organized.
Third stage: The final modification phase of motion improvements or addition or modification of sound and visual effects so that the video is ready to be uploaded on different social media platforms or websites.
