Keyframe Animation: A type of animation that uses a series of 'key' or 'control' frames to define the motion of objects. Each keyframe is a snapshot of the objects position at a given point in time. Timeline Animation: A type of animation that uses a timeline to organize and control the animation of objects. Animators can add and delete frames, modify the order of frames, and control the speed of animation. Interpolation: The process of calculating the values between two given points on a timeline, such as position, rotation, or color, in order to create a smooth animation.

The first animation was created by French cartoonist Émile Cohl in 1908. A single second of animation can take up to 24 drawings to create. Computer generated animation, or CGI, is now the most commonly used type of animation.
