4 Main Basic 3D Animation Concepts

3D computer graphics are often referred to as 3D models. 3D is the short form of three-dimensional. Aside from the rendered graphic, the model is contained within a graphical data file. However, there are differences. 3D model is the mathematical representation of a three-dimensional object. A model is not technically a graphic till it is displayed. Due to 3D printing, 3D models are not confined to the virtual space. A model can be displayed visually as a two-dimensional image through the process called 3D rendering, or used in non-graphical computer simulations and calculations.Basic 3D Animation Concepts are explained over here.

4 Main Parts of 3D animation

1. Modeling

Among the two most common sources of the 3D models are those that an artist or engineer originates on a computer with some 3D modeling tool, and models scanned into a computer from real-world objects. Models can be produced procedurally or via physical simulation. A 3D model is formed from points called vertices that define the shape and form polygons. A polygon is an area formed from at least the three vertexes. The overall integrity of the model and its suitability to use in the animation depending on the structure of polygons.

2. Texturing

A map of texture is applied to the surface of a shape or polygon. The process is akin to applying patterned paper to a plain white box. Every vertex in the polygon is assigned a texture coordinate either via explicit assignment or by the procedural definition. The Image sampling locations are then interpolated across the face of a polygon to produce the visual effect result that seems to have more richness than could otherwise be achieved with a limited number of polygons.

3. Layout and Animation

Before rendering into an image, objects must be placed in a scene. It defines spatial relationships between objects, including size and location. Animation refers to the temporal description of an object, i.e., how it moves and deforms over the time. Popular methods include inverse kinematics, key framing and motion capture. These techniques are often used in combination. As with the modeling, physical simulation also specifies motion.

4. Rendering

The process converts a model into an image either by simulating light transport to get photo-realistic images or by applying some style as in non-photorealistic rendering. The two basic operations in realistic rendering are transport and scattering. This step is performed using 3D computer graphics software or a 3D graphics API. Altering the scene into the suitable form for rendering also involves 3D projection, which displays a three-dimensional image in two dimensions.

Proper Basic Rigging techniques for Animated Characters

The Rigging process is where building a puppet in the different directions. In this article, you will learn how to create a Proper Rigging Techniques for Animated Characters. Below are the Basic Rigging tips for Animating Character.

Proper Rigging Techniques Steps Of Animated Characters

 

1. Simple Rigging

Proper Rigging Techniques is very easy and fast to do. It is built as follows:

  • All the body parts are independent
  • All the timeline’s layers are attached to a master peg layer

The advantage of using this technique is that you are free to move any part around without being influenced by any parent layer.

2. Parenting Layers

When you want a part to attach another one, such as the forearm following the arm, you can attach layers one to the other.

For example, you can attach the forearm layer to the arm layer without having to encapsulate the forearm into the arm layer. They will still be a parent, but you will be able to access the forearm directly without having to enter the arm layer.

Advantage of Parenting Layers

Is that the child layers follow the parent smoothly without having to select them or create a series of key frames.

Disadvantage of Parenting Layers

Is that you are not able to move the parent separately of its children as the child layers receive all the transformation information from the parent.

3. Rigging using Pegs

When you are doing more advanced puppet rigging, you can use the peg layers. Peg layers are trajectory layers that do not contain any drawings. They are motion paths that you can use to control the entire puppet. Parenting a drawing layer to a peg layer allows you to divide the motions into two separated levels. You can scale body part directly on the drawing layer. In that way, you do not affect any child layers that could be attached to that part. Then, you can perform the translation and rotation on peg layer so that all the parts attached to that peg layer follow the same trajectory.

 4. Rigging the Head

You start by attaching the facial features to the head. The advantage of parenting features to the head layers is that you can easily animate each facial feature, and they all follow the head motion.

5. Changing the Layer Order in the Network View

Network view useful when it is time to do advanced ordering and hierarchy.

In the Network view, select the Head module’s connection connected to the Composite module located at the left of all the facial feature modules.

Drag the connection to the right of all your facial feature modules connections.

6.Writer

The writing involves many things such as putting, plotting and outlining the contents of stories. A good writer can go for these options as well.

7.Software developer

Software developer work involves designing, creating and writing and implementing computer programs for video games and other gaming environments.

8.Pre-production

Preproduction happens before the production of the animation project starts. The important function of pre-production planning is an effective use of resources before an animation project such as films or games is produced. It includes building up ideas and developing a proper plan of implementation.

9.Post-production

Post-production is done after the project is fully done. It usually involves editing scenes, background score, various transition effects, adding voice to characters, dubbing and much more. It is the final step of production of any animation project.
