Basic 3D Animation

Basic 3D Animation

3D Animation consists of a series of individual images. These images are stored one at a time in the computer. They are viewed at the normal playback speed of 30 frames per second. The number of images that need to be generated to create even a very short film. Finally, the animation is rendered and the result is a moving picture, or animation.  3D animation allows the viewer to move around the scene and change perspective over time. The process of creating 3D animation can be divided into three phases: (a)Modeling; which describes the process of creating the 3D objects within a scene, layout and (b)Animation: which describes how objects are positioned and animated within a scene, and (c)Rendering: which describes the final output of the completed computer graphics. Through the combination of the above phases and a few other sub-phases, this completes the process of a 3D animation production. Some animated films and cartoon are Happy potter, The lord of the Rings, Wall-E, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, etc. 3D animators typically do creating animation and graphics with the aid of computer illustrations and software programs, spending time researching the project to get ideas for animation, creating a working model of scenes to be animated in movies, television, or video games. This process is called storyboarding, receiving feedback from clients and the rest of the design staff and incorporating the responses into project edits. 

According to The “Global Animation, VFX & Games Industry: Strategies, Trends & Opportunities, 2019” report, the total value of global animation industry was US$ 259 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach US$ 270 billion by 2020. Most of the segments in the animation industry are growing at the rate of 2% YoY.  According the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov), multimedia artists and animators had a median income of $72,520 in May 2018. And it was expected to grow by about 4%.

It is noted that SIMEC system ltd. is country’s biggest animation and software lab.
