10.Animation-Moving Holds


A moving hold in animation means that a character freezes or moves very slightly in a particular pose for whatever length of time that you have set for it. Moving holds are used often in animation to help break up the movement, and to add to an emotion a character is trying to compose. Moving holds should be used sparingly though, and a point in the animation where it is needed. If there are too many moving holds it can give the animation a stop and go feel.

9.Animation Frame rate


The frame rate is the amount of frames per second. It’s important to find out what frame rate your animation needs to be on before starting any animation, all so that you can be assure your animation will be timed right. For example, in film the frame rate is 24 frames per second, meaning 24 different images are displayed over the course of 1 second. As one of the more common frame rates, 24 frames per second is a great frame rate to default to if you’re not sure what frame rate your project needs.
