Techniques

There are basically two techniques used in animation namely the key framing and inbetweening. Key framing is nothing but capturing the key frames or moments in a picture in the animated format and sequence. This frame is derived or obtained from its essential or significant moments, characteristics, attributes etc… In sketching these would be termed as keyframe drawings while in puppet shows or claymation these are termed as key poses. Once this is done, then the frames in between the different poses are to be created which is known as inbetweening. This is nothing but filling the gaps between the different frames arranged.
