The Great Disney Multiplane Camera

The multiplane camera was invented by Walt Disney that enabled a greater sense of visual depth for flat two dimensional animations. The technique is still used today, but with greater efficiency and ease of control. You'll see it many times in animations done in Toon Boom, After Effects and Flash. Many of my animation students were trying to create this effect without realizing that it was done before. If you are interested in adding more dimension to your animations, check out this presentation as explained by the master himself.

Fire it up and enjoy.
