Frames & Keyframes

As stated on a previous page, traditional animation is done frame by frame; with small changes made from one frame to the next.
This is true regardless of whether the scenes are hand-drawn, or made up from single frames shot with a camera, as in Claymation.
In hand-drawn animation, the frames where the action changes majorly are called key frames, and are drawn by the lead artist, while the in-betweenframes are drawn by in-between artists or 'tweeners'.
Flash can simplify the process of drawing the in-between frames.
This process is called 'tweening'.
