The 3D Adventure

January 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 187

The exciting adventure into a magical world with multiple dimensions where your imagination is allowed to run wild is the world of 3D animation. Take a swim in the deep blue sea exploding with tropical, colourful fish that you can almost touch and feel with your fingers. Walk through a fierce blizzard where you can feel the icy wind blowing and touch the magical snowflakes with your fingers. Trek through the Sahara Dessert whilst you can see the hot sand blowing on your face, watch the camels as if they were real life and enjoy the experience almost as if you were there now.

That is why skilled 3D animators are the most highly sought-after artists in the world of 3D. The main reason they are in demand, is that producing believable and entertaining animation requires a lot of skill and practice.

A 3D animator needs to be a type of actor so he can act out each move in sequence. It is a complicated set of skills and knowledge which is acquired through a lot of work and practice. This is usually achieved through years of studying acting and how objects move etc...

Keen observation may be the most important skill to develop as an animator. Observe life around you [such as the fish in the ocean] and the way that objects move. Draw pictures, take notes, and try to attach a meaning to what you observe. Don't study just animation. Try to study movies attend plays and even read comic books to understand how poses and movement create moods and communicate messages without using words. New animators would benefit from the old masters of 20th century animation - Walt Disney, Art Babbitt, Grim Natwick, and Ken Anderson. The principles used to bring characters like Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny to life are still as relevant today as they were back then. Indeed, the first place a new 3D animator should look is to the old animation manuals of 2D artists.

The novice 3D animator will be wise to focus on basic objects first: how to make a ball move from one place to another, and how to make it bounce. Later, as you explore character animation, you'll need to understand what determines a good walk and how to cut down on "float," a common problem for new animators where the character moves as if underwater.

Most importantly, animators must practice their craft repeatedly. Like modelling, animation requires time and patience. Even experienced animators may create many test movies before getting a good final result. A good animator can make an average model come to life, whilst even the best models can be made to look amateurish by a poor animator. Persistence generates success, and like all crafts, is the key to creating the ultimate success..

Allow yourself to be immersed into an amazing world where every creature and object lacking dimensions is transformed into real life.

Do you want to enjoy the adventure and thrill of 3D without going to the theatre?

The thought of objects and people in 3D is exciting not to mention just like reality. It would be so much better than seeing everything flat.
