Just thought it'd be fun to point this out!

Brick (Stop Motion) Animation:
In a Brick Animation, the user creates each frame individually. Then they make one frame invisible and the next visible by a simple script created in Nodes.

- Classical edgy feel (Stop Motion)
- More artistic freedom
- Simple

- A lot of work
- Edgy

Node Animation:
The Node animation is more or less the 'normal' type of animating. Animating is done in nodes, which will calculate the paths of any object you want to animate, making it less work (at least, if you know what you're doing XD)

- Less work
- Smooth
- Material to learn from

- Medium complex
- Not as much artistic freedom (more work to suddenly change an objects material or path)

NoFrame Animation:
This is a very special type of animation which doesn't use the timeline (it can use the frame rate). This is used for games (like the ones I program), but can also be used for animation, although it is a lot more work than the Node Animation and much more complex than the the other two combined!

- Programming

- Complex
- Almost no learning material
- Not as much artistic freedom

(Notice how the animation duration is from 00:00 - 00:00?)

If anyone wants to add any ideas or give suggestions, feel free to do so!! (The titles aren't set in stone)
