A system and method for efficiently coding an animation sequence, converts a series of opcodes and associated opcode parameters into an array of integers. The array of integers is converting into an alphanumeric representation which is coded. The alphanumeric expression can also be compressed as well as encoded. The array of integers can be created by representing each opcode with an integer value, determining a number of parameters associated with each opcode, and creating an array of integers which includes, for each opcode, that opcode's integer value, followed by the number of parameters associated with that opcode, followed by said parameters associated with said opcode.
