Animation is nothing but drawing, which is presented on form of a 3D image. The process of capturing, storing, manipulating and then presenting multiple media all falls under animation and its techniques. Computer is used to create a movement to these animation figures like in form of cartoons and animated movies. A course in animation can be broadly divided into four key areas or steps which includes – first a basic visual script is prepared consisting of the animation figures, scenes, and characters, then they are scanned and analyzed and are converted into 3D format, third step is where movement is inserted into these 3D animations and finally other features like shadow, color, light, sound, texture etc are put in. A student pursuing a course in animation has to learn and perform all these activities and also know how to print and produce these images.

Multimedia is on the other hand the technology which compiles of audio, video, graphics, pictures, text, photographs, illustrations and animations all in one. One looking forward to pursue multimedia courses should know that it’s the very basis of the convergence of telecommunication, data communication, visual arts, video and audio communication, publishing, cinematography, gaming, entertainment and professional electronics. Multimedia is not only subjected to movies, in fact it has a wide spread usage:

-Business world uses it in their business presentations,
-CBI uses it for recording and tracking of criminals, besides these many industries use it like – hair stylists, animation institutes and specialists, textile designing, graphic designing etc.
