2D Animation Classes
Our 2D animation classes cover all different types of 2D animation: traditional hand-drawn animation (cel animation), and vector animation.
Traditional 2D animation classes:
This is the classic type of animation you're probably most familiar with. Animation is hand-drawn, frame by frame, and then transferred onto cels for painting. That's where the term cell animation comes from.
Vector 2D animation classes:
Vector 2D animation is a newer way to create 2D animation using a 2D digital puppet. These are 2D characters which are built with a system of bones and controls that can be manipulated in a way similar to a 3D character rig.
