Departments of animation

  • Retake department - looks for mistakes in animation and has it redone. An animator will check all frames one by one in order to ensure they flow smoothly.
  • Compositing department - handles special effects such as chroma keying and other aspects of compositing.
  • Inbetweening department - creates in-betweens, the frames that go between key frames (the main points of action in a scene) that make up the bulk of an animation.
  • Editing department - compiles and edits the animation (either in part or in its entirety) so that it is consistent.
  • Background department - draws the background art for scenes.
  • Storyboard department - plans out the animation using sketches of its main points (a storyboard).
  • Scanning department - converts traditionally-drawn media to digital and ensures frames aren't lost in the process.
  • Sound effects and musical scoring department - creates soundtracks and sound effects, such as with choirs, instruments, and Foley.
  • Layout department - stages scenes and creates plans for how a scene should look.
