Shape Animation

Shape Animation


At Wow-How Studio, we get benefits from vector graphics and bitmap. Firstly, we use relevant keys and vector format to move objects on the screen.

Do you know Shape animation?

        Starching and shaping any object on vector graph is called shape animation. As far as the language is concerned, it is more important than geometric form. This is why, every move, shape and object expresses different theme.

        A developer uses shape animation technology to transform, change or correct any geometric object. Here, points denote to keys. Change of shape or object is the key feature of shape animation. A creator changes different figures according to requirements. With its benefits, shape animation has limitation.

        Shape animation has made the objects alive. With their changing feature they are able to move. This is why it is very close to frame-by-frame animation. We can consider it the closest type.

        Every process has its own procedures. We cannot say it as easy as painting etc. But it is time taking and technical process. Let’s have some detailed discussion on this issue.

        This technology enables the developer to change any line into another object. Similarly, the developer can transform any rough or different angles into smooth object. For instance, the developer can change a circle to square smoothly. For the purpose, the developer commands two key-frames having some distance and then it is calculate.

Examples of animation

  • 1: Traditional animation or Classical 2D animation: Traditional animation involved animators drawing by hand for each and every frame. …
  • 3 : Digital 3D animation. …
  • 4 : Stop-motion animation. …
  • 9: Clay animation or Claymation. …
  • Cut-out animation. …
  • Sand Animation. …
  • Typography Animation. …
  • Paint-on-glass animation.

What is the purpose of animation?

Animation is used to create models that are essential for research and study. Animation allows you to create 3D, realistic models that allow diagrams, etc. to show accurate representations of an object.

Forms of Animation

5 Forms of Animation

  • Traditional Animation.
  • 2D Animation.
  • 3D Animation.
  • Motion Graphics.
  • Stop Motion.

Technical procedure

        The developer draws two different lines or different frames. Animation is added  to the frames. So as the frame passes, the shape changes accordingly. Having two different frames, performing activity on first keyframe then select the properties to change the shape. Different features represent different colors. So, time scale remains green. And first to second frame, a needle remains there. There is an intermediate frame which converts the shape as it moves.

Differentiation between frame-by-frame animation and shape animation. 

In frame-by-frame animation, with motion of the object draws the movement of the object. So, the starting point is set and then the last one. Afterward, the application command connects the both keyframes. Basically, such type of technology ,

Features of shape animation.

  • It is the best feature. It does not work and later on, the developer can use pictures and images.
  • It does not require the keyfram. But it contains starting and ending shape.
  • Shape changing does not require the motion path. This is why, the movement remains linear.
  • It is resistant to any change.

The developer while using shape animation, may change the parameters as:-

  • The form of the object may change
  • The place may change
  • The shade may change
  • The moving patterns may change.

The animator can use such type of animation in any video in which the stuff moves alongside the plot.

Which type of animation is best?

3D, also referred to as CGI (computer generated imagery), is the most popular type of animation for feature films currently, and it’s become common in TV and short films as well. This is also the same type of animation used to create digital characters for live-action films and animation for video games.

Well, at Wow-How Studio, we develop different types with different technologies. We aim to engage the viewer. It will catch the attention of the target market to the brand. To create pleasant and beautiful stories, our team and artists process and develop with shape animation.

Let’s have some fun now. Share the details of the shape in your mind and we will make your dream shape animation.
