Pixar & Khan Academy - Learn Animation & Bring a ball to life

Pixar's Introduction to Animation is appropriate for children of all ages. The entire 'Welcome to Animation" will take roughly an hour to complete.

Lessons include straight ahead animation, as well as what is termed Linear interpolation (connecting key poses with straight lines), and Bezier curves (how to get smooth motion between frames).

Embedded below is a GIF as well as a 53 second YouTube tutorial showing straight ahead animation.

Take care,
