About The Course

2D animation creates movement in a two-dimensional artistic space. Work in the field of 2D animation requires both creativity and technological skills. 2D animation focuses on creating characters, storyboards, and backgrounds in two-dimensional environments. Often thought of as traditional animation, the figures can move up and down, left, and right. They do not appear to move toward or away from the viewer, as they would in 3D animation. 2D animation uses bitmap and vector graphics to create and edit the animated images and is created using computers and software programs, such as Adobe Photoshop, Flash, After Effects. These animations may be used in advertisements, films, television shows, computer games, or websites.

3d animation is the process of generating three-dimensional moving images in a digital environment. Careful manipulation of 3D models or objects is carried out within 3D software for exporting picture sequences giving them the illusion of animation or movement. However, this is completely based on the technique used for manipulating the objects. The procedure of generating 3D is sequentially categorized into three main sections and these are modeling, layout and animation and rendering. One of the most obvious differences between 2D and 3D Animation is the appearance of depth or the three-dimensional features. 2D Animation is a flat animation where all the actions happen in x and y-axes. One the other hand, 3D involves extra dimension and it is the z-axis.

Visual preferences of an individual always play an important role in helping the individual decide between 3D and 2D Animation. However, there are even some other factors like timeline, target audience and budget which also influence an individual’s choice of animation. It is necessary to have a very clear idea of the ultimate video that you are looking forward to create, the objectives that you want to achieve and the audience that you are looking to reach with your video. These will actually have a major influence on your decision of creating 2D or 3D Animations.
