Multimedia– as the name suggests, that it contains different types of media in it. Multimedia is a term concerned with computer controlled integration of texts, graphics, drawings, still images, videos, animation, audio and any other media where every type of information can be represented, stored, processed and transmitted digitally. Multimedia includes Design, web design, animation, film production, photography, video games, web application, sound design, etc. Multimedia is usually recorded and played, displayed or accessed by information content processing devices such as computers, tabs, mobile phones, etc. Multimedia devices are electronic media devices used to store and experience multimedia content.
Animation– on the other hand is rapid display of sequence of still images that has a slight difference from each other. It’s a process of creating illusion of visual movement by sequentially playing many statics images together at a certain speed known as frames per second. The word Animation is basically made from Greek word ‘ani’ means any non-living object and ‘motion’ means movement, in short it simply means putting life in non-living objects.
Animation can be two dimensional (2D) or three dimensional (3D). It can be drawn by hand or generated by computer. It involves clay models, puppets, shadows or cut-outs. Some animations may involve all of these elements and more. Examples of good 3D movies are like The Incredibles, Shrek, The Croods, etc.
3D animation starts with creating a 3D model or 3D character, a modeler with the help of various softwares available in the market, creates 3D models, rigs and programs it for movement. The life of 3D animation depends on 3D texture and lighting. Whereas 2D animation involves thousands of individual images copied from original paper drawings onto transparent Cels. Then each Cel was colored and set against painted background before being scanned. Now these scanned images are played sequentially to give a visual movement.
