Moving Into The Future-Flash & 3D Animation

Watch more cool animation and creative cartoons at aniBoom

Once upon a time, animation was painstakingly hand-drawn in multiple stages by sweatshop teams of artists who mad no pretensions to realism. Preferring in general to portray speaking animals and magical figures, the first cartoon mills freed filmmakers, particularly the late Walt Disney, from the necessity of building sets, costuming actors, and obeying the laws of physics.

In those days, work on a major production like Peter Pan took years of careful, repetitive draftmanship. Today, the gruntwork is done by technological marvels like Flash Animation and high-end rendering programs like LightWave 3D. And the home cartoonist can now unleash their vision from a single desktop, recording the soundtrack from a simple desktop studio, achieving results which, while not necessarily meeting current standards for image and sound quality, would have been the wonder-struck envy of Walt’s team of tireless re-illustrators.

Computer animation goes way beyond funny cartoon images, however. Game designers have eagerly adapted the technology to provide an interactive experience which transcends the boundaries between artist and spectator. The graphics and storylines are often dark and hyper-real, taking advantage of the medium to generate 3D animations which rival the real thing.

Animators of all stripe have one thing in common…they are working in the cutting-edge medium of the age. Multimedia animation is perhaps the ultimate art form, allowing a single artist to write a script, code the actors, compose the soundtrack and distribute it via sites like, where up-and-coming video artists can compete to spread their work throughout the world.

We’ve come a long way, Walt.

    Its site is very nice. They may have used 3d software for some of the 3d perspective/stages, though – not sure. But all the ‘real’ animation was hand drawn – frame by frame! Remember, this was 10 years ago. Flash certainly was not used.

    Now every thing is possible 3d works and animation works. Most of the movie and channels are depending on these works.

  22. Micronews April 5th, 2010 11:25 pm

    Animation and illustration definitely has come a long way. And with the different softwares that you can use for sound and imagery, plus a touch of artistic hands, possibilities are endless. Images could even simulate reality! Artists are given more freedom to express their artistry and creativity. I salute those people who are working hard in making all these things possible!

    Future 3D animation will become a hot trend in animations.I’m a big fan of animations.In my point of view,3D may probably dominate the future animation,but we should not ignore the traditional animation created without 3D.
    If the animation is good,no matter it uses 3D,it can be popular and welcomed by everyone.
    Anyway,thanks for sharing your nice points of 3D animation.

    That was a really wierd animation :S

    Not only has technology grown but so has the wierdness of peoples creative minds.

  30. francoslice October 4th, 2010 6:42 pm

    i think 3D animation is increasing its role in animation world.but 3D animation would need some technical advancements to expand its role in animation are doing a good job in the field of 3D animation.

  31. filed October 28th, 2010 9:12 am

    Some of the sites where you can create animation are getting really good.

  32. Best of Jessica December 6th, 2010 5:32 pm

    Indeed, it’s hard to believe the advances in animation nowadays. Avatar for example is an amazing piece of 3D art, flawless in its nature. And PC games are pushing the edge too: FarCry, Crysis, etc. Soon, we won’t be able to distinguish virtual worlds from reality.

    Thank you for nice text, great pleasure to read your blog.

  35. kudos May 28th, 2014 9:15 am

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
    with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos

    Paragraph writing is also a fun, if you know after that you can write if not it is complex to write.

  37. Unquestionably June 20th, 2014 8:44 pm

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be at the web the simplest
    thing to remember of. I say to you, I certainly get irked even as
    folks think about issues that they plainly don’t know about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , other folks can take a signal.

    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

  38. testing June 22nd, 2014 8:20 pm

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive
    the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
