    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but gonna give it a try.

    I’m planning to make a sort of showreel or montage that shows 10 different animation categories. So far I have narrowed it down to the most used in this list. ;

    01 Character | (Explainer video)

    02 Type | (Kinetic type, Title intro/outro)

    03 Visual effects | (Greenscreen, explosions/fluids/particulars, motiontracked fx)

    04 3D | (Products, exploded views)

    05 Photo | (2/D, collage)

    06 Abstract | (shapes, textures)

    07 Interface UX | (apps, dashboard car startup)

    08 Frame by frame |

    09 Stopmotion | (Pinokkio movie)

    10 AI ? | (software automated generated)

    Any ideas or examples?

    Some of those can be truncated to a single example.

    Frame by frame and Stop-motion for instance.

    Not sure what you mean by Character (Explainer Video).
    Are you referring to PowToons?

    I would not put that together.

    Hi Eric,

    I see ‘Frame by frame’ as animating in Photoshop exporting to AE. Stopmotion more clay puppets or real live studio recording.

    Characters animation is maybe a broad term.. I mean animations like Dekay and Motion Markus.
