Cel Animation (Dough Boy)

As the computer rapidly sequences these eight images ("cels"), you have the illusion that this dough boy is running in the screen.

When the frames are played quickly in sequence, they look like motion

Wireframe Animation

"Dozo"

The first step is to enter (Image 1) into the computer (Image 2) the wireframe corresponding to the body we want to represent.

The real life scene to model     A wireframe model

The second step is to fill the polygons defined by the wireframe with photo-realistic texture, as in the examples presented below.

The animated models can sing     Or they can run

The third step: the computer moves these bodies by moving the nodes of the wireframe corresponding to real human movements.
