What are different types of Animation styles for Businesses?


Motion graphics

In these kinds of videos, graphics come and go on screen (Graphics are in motion). The Voiceover or text in the video is added to communicate the content.


Whiteboard Animation

A video style similar to explaining something on a White Board. Basically a static image is drawn on a white board with a voice over narrative.

Effective for explaining a concept but visually it might not look as appealing as Motion Graphics.


2D Character Animation

Animation style where a character is shown and animated with expressions. Objects and characters have a motion only in 2 dimensional space.

Effective in conveying emotions.


3D Animation

In this Animation style, another dimension is added to make the animation realistic. This video style requires effort for every second of video created and hence the pricing of such videos is on ‘per second’ basis.
