Computer animation encompasses a wide range of animation including 2D and 3D graphics and animations, motion graphics, geospatial animations, and even stop motion animations. Animation is an immersive way to grasp the viewer’s attention without overwhelming them with content. Viewers absorb visual and kinetic content, which present a more dynamic visual as they interpret simple to complex information.
CATMEDIA is dedicated to creating high end animations, motion graphics, and visual effects. We perform all stages of animation development, from the project kickoff to scripting and storyboarding, to the the actual development and creation, and through the post and editing process.
Types of Animation
Our animators and graphics artists uses their talent, creativity, and technical skills to provide creative solutions that best fit your animation needs. We engage with you from the outset to create the best type of animation to deliver your message.
In two-dimensional mediums, we create motion graphics, infographics, logo animation, and stop motion animation.
- Motion graphics range from typography animation, which focuses with typography, to graphical animation, which focuses on representative visual aids. Motion graphics typically incorporate graphics with little to no typography. They can be overlaid on footage for aesthetic or learning purposes. Motion graphics are concise to allow a clear understanding of the content in a kinetic perspective.
- Infographic animation is a style of computer animation that utilizes numerical information and typography. This style of animation is a great way to portray information to an audience with minimal motion, coloring, styling and layouts.
- Stop motion animationsare frame-by-frame animation. Cartoons are generally considered stop motion animations.
2.5D animations are 2D graphics in a 3D space. The purpose of these graphics is to portray a complex diagram or physical space without overwhelming the viewer with visual content. Computer animated 2D graphics in a 3D space allows for more freedom of movement, giving more possibilities to present information and graphics. There is also the option to bring 3D graphics into a 2D space, which holds the same purpose as 2D graphics in a 3D space.
In 3D mediums, CATMEDIA provides motion graphics, infographics, 3D models, logos, and Geospatial animations. Geospatial animation is a type of animation that focuses on the aerial (or bird’s-eye view) animation of a location. We utilize geospatial animation to visualize a city, continent, or planet. Most geospatial animation is completely in the 3D realm. There are exceptions; 2D and/or 3D graphics can be combined with geospatial animation to create infographics. 3D motion graphics, infographics and logo animations are similar to 2D animations, except the graphics have an additional depth to them.
Logo animation is a computer-animated logo. Animating a personal or company logo gives more life to a digitized design. Platforms for logo animation include e-learning videos, commercials, advertisements or company websites. As we become more digitized as an industry, different platforms become more important in the promotion of a business. An animated logo can help a company gain widespread appeal.
CATMEDIA offers an array of animation options from 2D to 3D animations, to geospatial and stop motion computer animations. Check out our work, including video production, training programs, web design, PSAs and commercials, motion graphics, character animations, and more.
Unique visual content allows a message to be easily understood and remembered by a viewer. An animated 2D and/or 3D graphic can be more appealing and memorable than a static graphic.
