Animation & Motion Graphics is Animation?

  According to Mathematics, the word "animate" means "to give life to," and animating is the process of moving something that cannot move itself. Computer animation creates the illusion of movement through a succession of computer-generated still images. Fully appreciating the high-speed efficiency and the complexity of computer animation requires a basic understanding of how animation was achieved before the days of the computer.

The motion graphic to the left was created by Matthew DiVito.  There are more examples of his work available on his website.
