  Animation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The use of computer animation as a way of achieving the otherwise impossible in conventionally shot movies has led to the term "computer generated imagery" being used, though the term has become hard to distinguish from computer animation as it is now used in referring to 3D movies that are entirely animated.
Animation is also celebrated as an artform (sometimes it receives government funding; this was especially common in Eastern Europe in the Communist era), and is showcased in many film festivals worldwide.
Because animation is very time-consuming and often very expensive to produce, the majority of animation for TV and movies comes from professional animation studios.

 Animation - MSN Encarta
Animation, motion pictures created by recording a series of still images—drawings, objects, or people in various positions of incremental movement—that when played back no longer appear individually as static images but combine to produce the illusion of unbroken motion.
For instance, if the animator decides on an action that will take 3 seconds of animation to complete, he or she will have to create images to fill 72 frames of film (3 seconds of movement multiplied by a running speed of 24 frames per second).
The animation technique known as pixilation uses humans or other live subjects filmed incrementally in various fixed poses; when the movements are played back, the subjects move in an unnatural or somewhat surreal way.

 What is animation?
Animation is that stimulus to the mental, physical, and emotional life of people in a given area which moves them to undertake a wider range of experiences through which they find a higher degree of self-realization, self expression, and awareness of belonging to a community which they can influence (quoted by Simpson 1989: 54).
They see the functions of animators to be that of ‘acting with learners, or with others, in situations where learning is an aspect of what is occurring, to assist them to work with their experience’ (1997: 7).
Animation is defined as 'a process in which individuals, small groups or larger communities are activated or animated to create for themselves and their neighbours improved social, physical, cultural or emotional settings'.

 Category:Animation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Animation refers to the process in which each frame of a film or movie is produced individually, whether generated as a computer graphic, or by photographing a series of drawn images (an animated cartoon), or by repeatedly making small changes to a model (see claymation and stop motion), and then photographing the result.
The main article for this category is Animation.

 The SMIL Animation Modules
The model accounting for the OM and concurrently active or frozen animations for a given attribute is described as a "sandwich", a loose analogy to the layers of meat and cheeses in a "submarine sandwich" (a long sandwich made with many pieces of meats and cheese layered along the length of the bread).
Note that animations manipulate the presentation value coming out of the OM in which the attribute is defined, and pass the resulting value on to the next layer of document processing.
If an animation specifies all the values in the same units, an implementation may use knowledge of the associated syntax to interpolate in the unit space, and apply the result within the animation sandwich, in terms of the specified units rather than canonical units.

 Animation - SVG 1.1 - 20030114
The effect of a motion path animation is to add a supplemental transformation matrix onto the CTM for the referenced object which causes a translation along the x- and y-axes of the current user coordinate system by the computed X and Y values computed over time.
At any time t within a motion path animation of duration dur, the computed coordinate (x,y) along the motion path is determined by finding the point (x,y) which is t/dur distance along the motion path using the user agent's distance along the path algorithm.
animation element is animating that property, the result is implementation-dependent; thus, it is recommended that this be avoided.

 Adobe - Developer Center : Flash Animation Learning Guide
There are different ways you can script animation: you can write ActionScript to handle all aspects of the animation or you can use prebuilt classes and simpler code to create an animation.
Using code to create animations and effects often reduces the file size of your finished application, and can also improve the performance and consistency of the animation itself.
At times, ActionScript-based animations might even reduce your workload: code can be faster to write, and it's easy to apply to many instances at once or reuse in other applications.

The above animation simulates six ions in "cat" states, spinning in two opposite directions at the same time.
The six ions are also entangled with each other, so their properties are correlated.
If one ion is measured with a laser (shown as a blue beam), that ion's delicate superposition will "collapse" and it will spin in only one direction (clockwise/blue in the animation).
