Animations play a huge part in the world of multimedia communications. A saying goes: "A picture is worth a thousand words". Well, one animation is made out of thousands of pictures, so you do the math. We create them with different motives, but our goal is the same, we want to deliver a message to a wider audience. Let it be for advertisement, for a story, or for the sake of art. We know different types of animations: from motion graphics in GIF format to complex 3D cartoons. In my thesis, I am focusing on the type of two dimensional animation. Therefore, I am guiding you through the process of animating inside the Adobe After Effects CS6 and Adobe Illustrator CS6 softwares.
