People who have not seen cartoons since childhood can hardly be found. Our childhood was actually spent with these cartoon characters. Whether it’s Ben 10, Tom and Jerry, Doraemon or Oggy and the cockroaches, or the recent popular Motu Patlu, we’ve seen almost everything. From that good place, we often think about cartoons. I wish I could make a cartoon myself. Today, I’m going to talk about that cartoon.
how did the cartoon actually come about?
In fact, cartoons began in the 1800s. At that time, there were mainly cartoons in hand. Cartoons were used in different types of newspapers in different humorous cartoons, or political jokes. After this, in the 1900s, animated cartoons actually started the journey. In that sense, many people consider Emile Cohl’s phantasmagoria as the first animation. It was built in 1908. This was followed by the revolution of animated cartoons by Mr. Walter Disney, the founder of Walter Disney Studios, the most popular studio of the present day. He created the studio in 1928 with the first popular cartoon series Mickey Mouse.
then we look at tom and jerry, the most popular cartoon series in history that began in 1941. the cartoons that didn’t look like those cartoons were made in 1941.
After this, cartoons mainly became more and more developed in Japan. As a result, we get the famous Doraemon cartoon series all over the world. The journey of which probably started after 1960.
THUS, WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF CARTOON TECHNOLOGY, IT CHANGED AND BECAME OF BETTER QUALITY. ALL THE SERIES I’VE DISCUSSED SO FAR HAVE BEEN ALMOST 2D ANIMATION CARTOON SERIES. THEN CAME THE ERA OF 3D ANIMATION. UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF WHICH WE CAN SEE CARTOONS OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY.
How are cartoons made?
at one time, cartoons were made of art on paper. by making many images for every motion done on paper, if you show it as 20 images per second, it can be seen that the pictures look alive. in fact, what we call a video is nothing but a collection of pictures. the number of images that take load per second is called the number of frames per second. the quality of the video and this frame per second depends on it.
after this, there was a lot of change in cartoon animation after the arrival of digital technology. with the help of modern software, in addition to drawing, cartoon animations can now be made, which we call motion graphics design. those who mainly make cartoons are called animators.
let’s talk about some cartoon-making software today:
IT IS BASICALLY 2D-BASED SOFTWARE. WHITEBOARD ANIMATION IS DONE BY IT. IT CAN BE USED TO TELL VERY BEAUTIFUL STORIES THROUGH IT. IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE OLD VIDEOS OF THE “SOLVING THE PROBLEM OF LIFE” YOUTUBE CHANNEL, YOU WILL GET A COMPLETE IDEA ABOUT THIS SOFTWARE.
it’s paid software.
these are prepaid templates or custom character motions that are already done here. you will set up different characters and background images according to your storyboard. after that, give the motion according to the work. and the last sheep will render according to your quality.
all of this works in almost one system. these are also paid software.
It was formerly known as Adobe Flash. It is mainly used by those who do flash animations. If you have watched Antik Mahbub’s channel’s video on YouTube or the recent viral video of the band’s Behula music video, then you will understand that this software’s animation style is actually. It is very popular software. It is also paid software.
This software is basically the most popular software used in 2D animation. It can also be done by a lot more heavy VFX work, including motion graphics. This software is widely used for making motion graphics or explainer videos. Many big animation studios make cartoon animations through this software.
it’s also paid software.
3D animations are now very popular. More or less we will all be watching 3D animation movies or cartoon series. These 3D cartoons are actually made with some software called blender or Maya. First, the character has to be made first, then the rigging in that character is done according to the demand of the motion. After that, a perfect 3D video was created.
if you have seen motu patlu, you will easily understand this thing.
Although the blender is free, the Maya software is paid.
in fact, there is not much free software for creating professional quality cartoons.
the process of creating cartoons is essentially a lengthy and complex process. if you want, you can watch the video on youtube.
