Cel animation, where the animators used to draw every frame by hand, is dead long back & we are practicing only digital animation now. There are 2 types of digital animation - 2d animation & 3d animation. 2d animation means creating movements using characters & backgrounds in a two-dimensional artistic space. 3d animation means the creation of moving pictures in a three-dimensional digital environment, which is done by sequencing consecutive images, or "frames", that simulate motion by each image showing the next in a steady progression of steps, filmed by a virtual "camera" and then output to video by a rendering engine.
