Week 10: Advanced Animation
This week we learnt about continuity. It is important to have continuity throughout the animation.
Time and scape are fluid and continuous. Here are some examples you can achieve continuity:
Maintain position of elements
Use frame mobility
maintain direction of moving elements from scene to scene
Slow down or pause your camera! it helps emphasise important aspects of concept/words.
using visual properties of line, form, value, colour and texture
e.g. zooming into a shape that matches a shape in the following segment
it morphs around
using the timing of elements to create continuity
actions of elements moving around can used to preserve temporary and spatial continuity.
Where you break the traditional rules and jump-cut around -- if you know what you're doing... :)
