5 True/False questions
Stop Motion Animation → The term morphing comes from the word metamorphosis, which is the transformation of one thing into another.
The beginning image is inserted.
The ending image is inserted. The computer performs the tweening to generate a sequence of images, each of which is slightly different from the one it follows to gradually morph the two objects.
For example, a photograph of one person might gradually morph into a picture of another person.
Streaming Rate → The rate in frames per second at which the movie is downloaded.
Keyframe → Frames hold the content that the movie displays or plays at that point in time.
The number of frames determines the length of the animation.
The higher the number of frames, the longer the animation.
Path Animation → Also called vector animation. An object follows a path which is a line, or vector, inserted by the animator
Programming or Scripting-Based Animation → The computer is used to make the animation process quicker and easier.
Usually involves 2-D images
Can be hand-drawn and scanned into the computer.
Can be drawn directly into the computer using graphics tablets.
The images are positioned into keyframes containing the most important movements.
Tweening is then performed by the computer to create images between keyframes.
