2d & 3d ??? <ul><li>2D Animation - </li></ul>2D software uses images called bitmaps. These consist of blocks of color stacked together to make a picture. Each image can be “in-scale” with the others, making them easy to size for basic design & layout. The images can be very lifelike, but only show one view at a time, usually a top view. The versatility of 2D allows images to be taken from anywhere. Printed catalog items, existing items, or inventory lists can all be captured easily. Having this starting image makes the task of modifying it much easier. A limitation of 2D is that only 1 angle at a time can be captured and altered, similar to a pencil sketch. <ul><li>3D Animation - </li></ul>3D software uses computer-generated lines, surfaces, or solids to create 3D models. With a 3D model, you can assign special textures and colors to make a rendering. These renderings can be very realistic and can be generated and viewed at any angle around the item. Modeling in 3D is very different from drawing or designing in 2D. The 3D style of drawing has a higher degree of difficulty than 2D. Although each 3D program has ways of tackling these tasks, none of them is a causal effort.
