Nowadays, computer has becoming one of the useful technology in human society and Internet has becoming popular. There are many stuff that were invented using computer like software and websites. Speaking of computer, I somehow dream of trying to make an animation using computer aside from drawing using Photoshop. You know what I mean? Yep, it's Flash animation. They are also called computer animation 'cause well it was created on the computer using animation software. They're also called digital animation but most of people commonly called those cartoons as Flash. As of now, there are many animation software that released and some of them are offered as downloads for free. If you're a programmer who knows alien, er, programming codes there are also too. But what's behind on those computer animation?

Like any animation techniques, flash animation is a new technique that will exchange to 2D traditional animation for less time and money. Their predecessor perhaps the 3D animation is another reason why they're invented. As time goes by, many computers are consumed by customers as a part of personal work or even business also the factor. Flash animation started on the websites for adding design effects for market and business websites. As improves, Flash became influenced with animation and can be watch in computers especially on television. Have you notice there are lot of western animation that are made using Flash. Some of the examples are Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, HiHi Puffy AmiYumi, The X's and a lot more. Flash animation is a pretty useful tool for animators who are using computers.

Not only from the West, some Asian countries like in the Philippines also made animation using Flash or digital. Examples of our Philippine animation like Urduja and Dayo can be evident why we got our animation in a digital way. Before they're appeared in cinemas, Filipinos hardly unable to make a long series of animation because of the budget and expenses of the materials (a.k.a money) which is one of the biggest factors why Philippines has a short decade start of the animation industry. I admit I've never seen animation series like Darna and Ang Panday which some people talking about in the local forums. Well, thanks to computer and Internet, Philippines have strive into animation. I know it's kinda weird but I understand why. With the use of Flash animation, many cartoons were created under that technique and more viewers are enjoyed watching them. It doesn't mean that traditional animation will be dying but still exist today. If you wanna be an computer animator, the first thing I know where to download was to purchase some animation software programs like Macromedia Flash. and Toon Boom. Still, if you want to download without cost there are many websites that offers free animation software but I advise to download programs that you know how to use them without haste.

Since were in digital age, we don't need a reason for not to create your own animation show and there are animation software available. All you need to do is to dream, think and create an animation that will be entertaining to everyone.

Business organizations have to realize the fact that many people just click away to some other website, because the website they are looking at is not professional looking or is not interesting enough. Only a well designed website can serve the purpose of its existence.
Once the website is designed up to the mark, then comes the role of SEO because a well designed website won’t serve it’s purpose until and unless it has a good search ranking. Globally India is the most sort after for such solutions. There are many companies in India that provide solutions for web designing ecommerce and website seo development and in their race of being the best Virtual Studio is leading the way.
