Animation in augmented reality refers to the process of bringing virtual objects or characters to life through movement and motion. Animated elements in AR can include 3D models, characters, and graphical effects that respond to user interactions, environmental changes, or scripted behaviours. Animation enhances the realism and engagement of augmented reality experiences by making virtual content dynamic and interactive. It is used to create lifelike simulations, interactive storytelling, and gamified AR applications.
Animation in AR can be triggered by user gestures, voice commands, or the context of the environment, enriching the user's perception of the digital content and enhancing the overall immersion of the AR experience.
