Tips To Develop Effective 3D Animations

  1. 1. Tips To Develop Effective 3D Animations• Many factors can influence the creation of effective 3D animations for a project. Sufficient disk space to store the large animation files and a good understanding of the way modeling, rendering and animation software work are key factors that influence the development of effective 3D animations.• Tony Simmons, a leading animation expert in the industry, shares some tips to develop effective 3D animations.
  2. 2. Understand The Way An Animation Software Interacts With Other Applications• It is important to understand the way animation software interacts with other software in the process of animation to achieve best results.• Some elements of the animation may not be visible or function in other software. Animation experts must be aware of the way animation software interacts with other applications like modeling and rendering software.• This way, animation experts can restrict the use of some features that are not compatible in other software.
  3. 3. Learn All About Keyframes• A fundamental aspect of developing creative 3D animations is to be aware of the way keyframes work. Keyframes are the basis of a majority of animations and decide the movement of the characters in an animation.• They are important factors that influence the flow of movement in an animation. When an animation expert outlines the keyframes for a particular animation sequence, it translates to defining a start and end position for a particular movement.
  4. 4. Know How To Make Motion Seem Organic• Understanding how to make motion seem organic can help in replicating the life-like movement of objects and people.• A good rule to keep in mind is that organic motion follows the pattern of arcs and almost never follows the path of a straight line.• If an animation includes the movement of characters, keep in mind that when a part of a body moves, it will also trigger slight movement from other parts of the body.• Animation experts can develop a library of motions for a particular skeleton that can be easily included in the animation without having to develop the animation sequence from scratch.
  5. 5. It Is Going To Take Time• When working on an animation project, it is important to understand that the entire animation is going to take a significant amount of time to complete.• So animation experts should be patient enough to receive feedback from clients. It is common to find an entire team of skilled animation experts working on a single character at a time.• Different members in a team of animation experts will be in charge of various tasks in the process of animation, like motion, textures, keyframing and mesh modeling.
  6. 6. Rendering Takes Place Frame By Frame• After the development of a 3D animation, rendering takes place on a frame by frame basis. There will be certain specifications for each frame and after rendering, the files will be compressed into a viewable media format.• To put matters into perspective, keep in mind that an animation that lasts for a minute will require about 1,800 individual frames to be rendered. It could take an hour for each of the frames to render to create a good quality animation.• Many factors can influence the development of a high quality, effective animation. This article points out useful tips to develop an effective 3D animation.
