In contrast, cats and dogs and mice all move as a result of their intention to move. The complexity and range of dynamic possibilities of the various kinds of movement are almost endless. If we simply look at the various types of locomotion, we can see how they relate to the varying nature of the structures that undertake locomotion; fish swim, birds fly, frogs hop, and humans walk upright. The various types of physiognomy of the subjects— some with legs (of varying numbers), some with fins, some that are smaller than a pinhead, some larger than a London bus—determine the various types of movements they make.

Secondary actions occur in all manner of movements. Although they might not be the focus of an animated movement, they will often provide the necessary element to make the animation appear believable. If they are omitted from an animated action, the results are at best rather ordinary and at worst lack naturalistic and convincing movement. The action of the arms during a walk makes a contribution to the overall movement, providing a twist to the upper torso and a countermovement to the legs. However, the animation of the arms isn't critical or even necessary for that particular movement to be made.

Electromagnetism provides the force that holds all the electrons and protons together in all matter. Without this force, matter would not bind together to form atoms, atoms could not form molecules, and the structures that form all the recognizable material could not exist. Still, as important as this force is to our very existence, its implications may be of relatively limited value to us as animators attempting to gain more insight into action and dynamics. Gravity Unlike the other forces of nature for which range is limited, the range of gravity is universal.
