Nowadays the hype of the three dimensional (3D) technology has grown rapidly everywhere. 3D is present almost everywhere around us. In the various fields of films, cartoons, building structures, songs, games and mobile phones. From rendering to modeling, nothing has benefitted more than the virtualization of the 3D structures.
The 3D world has made lot of changes in our life. It can be said as a magic or an adventurous tool. Some say that it is an entertainment tool. It is nothing but a scientific method of creating images and structures with a lot of planning. The 3D animation production has gained publicity in various techniques and methods and is trying to make its definition clear. There are two separate film making techniques of the act of producing of 3D computer generated imagery (CGI), which is 2D animation techniques and live action. There are few differences regarding the making of a traditional animation and CGI process, but they are almost the same.
The 2D animation process is however well established rather than the 3D animation which is still in its building state. The style and nature of the computer generated imagery show is dependent on the usage and details of the production process of the animation. The basic outline points formed by the 3D animation production process are rather possible. In the case of computer generated imagery process hand drawn animated structures are done in a computerized way by the animators by developing a three dimensional setting and surrounding. Special designed sets are also to be made.
Proper lighting and coloring should also be done just like creating a shooting set for a live-action movie. 3D animation production is very much similar to the making of live-action films in the aspects of conceptualization of areas, blockage of hero’s movements, cinematography and the hook-ups done during the making of the process. The 3D animation however follows the 2D animation model in terms of the transformation of ideas from the stage to the screen. The animators and designers create a series of steps for making their process in proper order and therefore they do it accordingly for making the animations picture perfect.
This helps them to clearly define the process. Eventually the procedures are model-building, designing, lighting, animations effects, color of the surface, and the texture, touch up work, rendering, rigging, staging and lastly the film or video output. Due to the high quality of the production of animation process, this experience is usually helpful as for handling a feature film production project though both are totally different structural aspects of entertainment.
The job of the director of a 3D animated computer generated imagery film is also more or less the same as of the director of live-action feature films. Due to the indulgence of computers, making of the animated films have become quicker and easier than any other film making process. Therefore making an animation film can be tough due to the advanced technology comprised in it, but in the screen it looks like a creative wonder.
