To me, animation is either 2D or 3D. The 2D animation can be differentiated between traditional or digital if I'm getting specific about things. We had both in the animation school I went to so I guess that is how I picked up my terms.
well ya, it does, but I have heard it used elsewhere as well.
I find if I say "traditional 2d" I still get asked "flash?" and digital 2d, the same. so my thinking is, What term says "paper and pencil-done digitally" without also conjouring up "flash" or cut out animation styles?
