How Computer Animation Works

 In traditional frame-by-frame animation, the illusion of motion is created by filming a sequence of hand-painted cels and then playing the images back at high speeds, typically 14 to 30 frames per second. In computer animation, the art is created using computer programs, frame by frame, and then recorded, edited, and played back. 

Another computer animation technique is real-time animation, in which the frames are created using a computer and then immediately displayed on a computer monitor. This technique eliminates the interim step of digitally recording the images; however, real-time animation currently does not produce high quality or richly detailed results. It is best suited for creating simple animations for video games.
