Getting animation off the computer

When the animation is finished you have three choices:


Leave it on the computer hard disk.


Transfer it to external storage such as a Zip disk, USB flash drive, or CD/DVD.
Most short animations will fit onto a floppy disk, and as these are still around and school computers have floppy drives, it is useful to use these as well.


Transfer the work to remote backup which stores the animation on a remote server.

In animation workshops, all the above systems are used. It is becoming more common for children to have scanners and digital cameras at home, so eventually one can imagine them bringing in artwork, or sending it in over the Internet, and when completed, to send it back to their own computers.
