Finally, I use another "dissolve" inrepparttar end scene to take awayrepparttar 134784 old images and reintroducerepparttar 134785 image used inrepparttar 134786 first scene. "Dissolves" and "straight cuts" are a few ofrepparttar 134787 best "transitions" to use. You will often find them in film and television, we just never pay attention to those little details. This is when one object, scene, clip or animation fades away, whilerepparttar 134788 other fades in. In digital video, one clip slightly overlapsrepparttar 134789 other clip and a "transition" is between them. I use dissolves and straight cuts inrepparttar 134790 final animation becauserepparttar 134791 objects inrepparttar 134792 final scene are positioned so that your eye is drawn to them automatically withoutrepparttar 134793 need for further animation.

When you begin your animation, make sure you have a plan. Sketch out a timeline and know what you want to accomplish before hand to avoid a chaotic and disorganized animation. Varyrepparttar 134794 style of animation to create diversity and maintain interest. This is a rule that can be applied to many things. If you bold all of your copy, then nothing sticks out. If you fade in all your text, then nothing will stick out in your animation either. Pay close attention torepparttar 134795 most important messages in your animation and use motion to drawrepparttar 134796 eye to it. Remember, not everything needs to be animated. If you do, then you will have an animation that looks like objects thrown into a dust storm. You will loserepparttar 134797 power ofrepparttar 134798 animation and subsequently reducerepparttar 134799 power of your marketing message.
