A scene that is too simple can go from boring to decent if we follow the principles of Disney animation: adding motion to still elements. If we were to apply the staging principle to the animated version of “Where’s Waldo we would put Waldo’s body in a bright light and blur the other characters so that our central character would be instantly recognizable. The GIF above was created by combining the character’s “lift weight – fail” action with the “smoke” fabric animation. Forty years ago, Disney animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston announced the 12 principles of animation that Disney studios use to create incredibly realistic effects and animation. In Vyond Studio, you can control the speed of any moving object or character depending on the weight and emotion you want to convey. Some presets, such as Bouncing Ball Horizontally, follow the arc principle and are a great way to show realistic movement. Heads-up and pose-to-pose are two drawing techniques used in traditional animation, where each frame is drawn to create movement or action. Vyond Business Friendly style incorporates elements consistent with 3D principles, so you can enjoy 3D animation without spending years learning how to draw or animate. In Vyond, this principle is automatically applied to many animated character actions and props. To apply the principle of staging correctly, you have to ask yourself if your scene is focused on the main plot and theme, if there are any unwanted ambiguities you might want to clarify. To do this in Vyond, in addition to the motion path, use Continue Scene to adjust the size and position of the balloon in each scene as it moves. With Vyond, you can apply these 12 animation principles effortlessly and create your own unusual animation. To illustrate this principle in action, we created two bouncing ball animations. When animating a moving character or object, remember that not all parts move or stop at the same speed. In the GIF above, you can see that the Business Friendly animation is more three-dimensional, while the Contemporary animation is more abstract, without applying the whole design principle.
