Animation is the process of bringing a character or thing to "life" on a page.
Traditional animation uses multiple pages to make something move on said pages. To make it appear to move, the pages must be flipped in a certain motion and at a certain speed. This is said to take longer than CG animation.
CG (Computer Generated) AnimationEdit
CG animation uses screens and technology to make the character or item move in a scene. It typically does not take longer than traditional animation, but can produce amazing results.
