The Combination of Watercolor and Paperless Animation Technology


Paperless animation production technology has a series of advantages, including simple operation, powerful function, low cost and high efficiency. Paperless animation has gradually become the mainstream way of animation company creation. Paperless animation production technology is promoting the leap-forward development of animation industry. As the traditional hand-painted watercolor animation can bring the audience a very unique aesthetic experience, it can strengthen the effective combination of paperless animation technology and watercolor research. This paper tries to discuss the use of paperless animation production technology in watercolor animation creation, harboring the hope to accelerate the development of Chinese animation art.
