4.0 out of 5 stars A great starting place for the independent animator.
This book is a great guide to the starting animator, covering all aspects of animation with some general information of everything. This new digital edition is more comprehensive than the first edition because it explains how to use the computer as a tool for animation in both the 2D and 3D formats.
Published on 17 Aug 1999

3.0 out of 5 stars its not that great
In some areas there isn't a lot of depth of how things are done. It describes many techniques of animation though, but needs to elaborate more. Fine for beginners

5.0 out of 5 stars For people who want to learn animation at home, 31 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Animation Book (Paperback)
This book is exactly what I was looking for! I have always admired cartoons, and now as an adult of 28, I want to explore how I can create animation. This book goes through everything, from using pressure sensitive tablets for the first time, making homemade camera stands, using computer programs, and digital cams. It has lessons for drawing and exploring different medias, traditional and computer.
The author really encourages you to explore, and you don't even have to be a great artist! If you are thinking about going into animation, this book is really for you! All the fun without the commitment and money to go to school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!!, 9 April 2001
This review is from: The Animation Book (Paperback)
This is a very practical book for those poor folk who have to make their own animation set-up from scratch at home, like me. It has just about every computer programme there is, and lots of the other older methods like Super 8 which is always a good emergency method for getting stuff seen quick and rough. Also, there is lots to inspire anyone starting out in animation; it says "Look at all the stuff you could do, it's limitless"

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive animation book, 24 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Animation Book (Paperback)
This is not just a minor update to Kit's 1979 classic, this is practically a whole new book, nothing currently published even comes close to vast range of animation information offered here.

Kit Laybourne should be commended for gathering the most up to date (as of 1998) and comprehensive information about animation of EVERY kind. I hope that there will be updates of this book. The animation field is exploding and transforming constantly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Book for the Begginers :(, 2 Jan 2002
This review is from: The Animation Book (Paperback)
I am just starting to dip my toe in the Animation pool and i bought this book and was COMPLEATLEY overwhelmed :)). I don't think this is the best thing to go with if you are a newbie. My best advice is to ask the people who have already made it.
