Important guidelines on 3D Animation – Animation Works
The word animation means creating a series of drawings or pictures which are taken during the simulation process and this helps in making a move. Such a process helps in creating a demonstration of motion because of presenting still photographs one after other at the rate of 25 pictures in a few seconds. For e.g. Motion picture or video programme are examples of common methods of showing the animation process. 3D animation is all about 3-dimensional images in motion which help in creating the illusion of movement or animation within digital set up. Such manipulation of objects helps in giving audiences real feels about their 3d characters or scenes in a most stylish way. There exist 2 types of animation: 2d and 3d animation. As the name suggests 2d animation is flat animation which includes all actions on x and y-axis. While 3d animation includes extra z-axis where all actions happen just like 2d animation.
Understand your character – It’s very much essential to understand and analyse your 3d character as your audiences always want to have real behaviour into your portfolio. It’s advisable to include several expressions that change from angry to happy or afraid to courageous as such emotions help in grabbing the audience’s attention. Also, try to have a story line in your animation work as it creates magically different effects on audiences as they are more interested in understanding characters and their related story line.
Focus on facial movement with movement-It’s no more believed that animators need to build certain poses into face rigs to express natural emotions but instead of that should ensure that with movement of lip like lip trembling when certain 3d character is about to cry, one of the characters has tightened up his mouth in order to control laughter or eyes whizzing around when person is at loss of words to express. Thus it’s better to focus on facial expressions or certain movements as closely as possible and that will reflect clear and effective communication with the targeted audiences.
Closely focus on your dialogues by keeping it mute-It’s always better to closely understand and listen to your dialogues so as to get into characters act, the frame of mind and subtext. It’s essential to analyse whether your dialogues are communicated well with your colleagues with a muted sound. If they are not expressed well or not communicated properly then it’s required to reinforce your pose choices and speak in synchronisation with body language before un-muting the dialogues.
