3D animation

3D animation

3D animation is a graphic technique to make objects or characteristics to have motions and this is not limited to the games, videos or films, but also the companies can create materials for their brand and marketing. In this way, the objects are designed in a 3-dimentional format instead of drawing. Fortunately, world of the 3D animation revolutionized with the progress of technology and new 3D animation software are available.

What is 3D animation?

The history of using 3D animation back to the 1990s, when first televisions made with computer-animated images and the images were closed to the real- life objects. The process of creating objects in a 3-dimentional environment and place them into a digital environment, is called 3D animation.

This animation gives scene of realistically to you and animators can create perfect cartoon character to increase this scene. The process of giving lie and movement to the characters and objects is done in 3 steps:

  • This is one of the great attractions stage that the objects and characters are created by the animator, which can be done completely by the animator or by using the tools. In this stage, the characters have no color and texture, but need a controllable skeleton for movements, like humans.
  • Layout and animation. After that, the characters and objects moved into the stage and positioned in a particular scene. Effects, lighting, colors and any details are added to the characters and these poses are known as keyframes.
  • At the end, the final images are created by using specific software and the project is finalized. Animator should have great attention to all details and added the music and sound effects to whole animation.

Where is 3D animation used?

The popularity of the 3D animation is growing and today, it has become widely used in various fields such as medicine or real estate for their branding. Some uses of this animation are:

  • Gaming, to provide the experience of being inside the game for gamers.
  • Education and training, to use visuals for better learning.
  • Marketing, to present the products and services to the customers.
  • Art, to bring the pictures and movies into the real life.

What does an animator do?

One of the most important things that an animator should do is selecting the best 2D and 3D animation software. The software should be upgraded and work truly. After that, specifying the animation needs is another important step. He/ she should know what features is needed, is there need special effects, motions or tools?

If an animator wants to present the best 3D animation should have update computer software and programs, learn working with related tools to grow with technology.

The animator should study and observe all physics aspects of the life in order to create more real characters. He/ she should focus on the basics first and then makes the details.

Differences between 2D and 3D animation

2D and 3D animation has its own technical aspects and techniques. In 2D animation, the characters are created in a 2-dimentional environment and the scene is flat but creating the characters in a 3-dimentional environment will be more realistic.
