Title Motion Graphics

Computer animation is essentially a digital successor to the stop motion techniques used in traditional animation with 3D models and frame-by-frame animation of 2D illustrations.

Computer generated animations are more controllable than other more physically based processes, such as constructing miniatures for effects shots or hiring extras for crowd scenes, and because it allows the creation of images that would not be feasible using any other technology. It can also allow a single graphic artist to produce such content without the use of actors, expensive set pieces, or props.

The banners, which include complicated animation schemes are usualy created with JAVA and Adobe FLASH.

The Flash formats could not achieve full media coverage, in which are published, because the incompitability of flash formats with Apple devices and Chrome browser. To visualize flash animations in Chrome, a special plug-in should be manualy activated, which makes the flash format inconvinient.

For animated Internet banners we recommend GIF и HTML5(JAVA) formats. 

The bigger advertising internet platforms have strict technical requrements for a banner integration. This requires coding from a specialist.
