Visual Perception, Spatial Perception, 2D Animation, Descriptive Analysis, Tri Matra


Visual perception is a very important aspect in animation because it will make it easier for viewers to identify and interpret visualizations and messages of each scene. One form of visual perception in animation that is interesting to study is spatial perception. For this reason, this study will be limited to the spatial perception aspect in 2D animation. The perception of space is essentially a three dimensional concept, because a real space is made up of three dimensions, namely the length or width of the space, the height of the space, and the depth of the space. While animation, especially 2D video animation, is only presented in two dimensions, namely the length or width of the video screen and the height of the video screen. This study aims to try to identify and inventory and also describe what visualization techniques can be applied to present the perception of the three dimensional space in animation. This study uses a descriptive research method, namely by describing a variety of visualization techniques that are able to produce the appearance of spatial perceptions in the animated display of the research sample. In general there are 6 visualization techniques which include overlapping, changing size and placement, linear perspective, relative hue and value, and atmospheric perspective, and also changing speed and time. In fact, in animation, almost none of the above techniques stand alone but are always in sync with other techniques simultaneously, which supports and reinforces the emergence of spatial perception.
