Using Frames to Create an Animation

Stop-motion animation is a great way to tell a story. Animation means to be full of life. Stop-motion animation is a process that brings your character to life one frame at at time.

What is a Frame?

Stop-motion animation is a great way to tell a story. Animation means to be full of life. Stop-motion animation is a process that brings your character to life one frame at at time.  

How does it Work?

Objects are moved between frames and when the frames are played back in order, the character appears to be moving and is brought to life. We said earlier that there are 10 pictures of Mary. Each picture shows Mary in a different position. If we show each picture of Mary one after the next, we can make Mary look like she is actually moving. More frames per second make the movements look smoother and harder to distinguish. Fewer frames can make the animation look choppier.
