Different ways to animate:

Sjors made two animations to show the difference between frame-by-frame animation and tween animation.

Frame-by-frame animation involves drawing a new image for each frame.

Tween animation means transforming an entire element over a period of time, puppet-style.

A tween animation transforming still drawings into an story.
