Computer animation is the process used for generating animated images. The more general term computer-generated imagery (CGI) encompasses both static scenes and dynamic images, while computer animation only refers to the moving images. Modern computer animation usually uses 3D computer graphics, although 2D computer graphics are still used for stylistic, low bandwidth, and faster real-time renderings. Sometimes, the target of the animation is the computer itself, but sometimes film as well.
Mainly 3D Animation Used For
1) ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING & CONSTRUCTION COLLECTION
2) PRODUCT DESIGN & MANUFACTURING COLLECTION
3) MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT COLLECTION
In today's climate of quickly rising consumer expectations, tight deadlines and shrinking budgets, 3D Animation can help you to build a modern production pipeline for:
- Fully animated features.
- Visual effects and post-production.
- Game design.
- Previsualisation and virtual film-making.
For 3D animations, all frames must be rendered after the modeling is complete. For 2D vector animations, the rendering process is the key frame illustration process, while tweened frames are rendered as needed. For pre-recorded presentations, the rendered frames are transferred to a different format or medium, like digital video. The frames may also be rendered in real time as they are presented to the end-user audience. Low bandwidth animations transmitted via the internet (e.g. Adobe Flash, X3D) often use software on the end-users computer to render in real time as an alternative to streaming or pre-loaded high bandwidth animations.
