THE MAGIC OF ANIMATION
The first stage involves giving the story a visual form and defining Character Design. It’s followed by Storyboarding, where the story is detailed out frame by frame. Post story boarding, the individual panels are edited together along with dialogue, music and sound effects to see the entire flow of a movie in a process known as animatics. An important stage of this 3-stage process, this is where the film is conceived and designed.
Production begins with modeling or creating Computer Generated(CG) backgrounds, characters and props for the characters designed in pre-production. These 3D models are then sent for texturing where they are given another layer of authenticity by adding age-specific elements, accessories and backgrounds. The next step involves rigging, where bone structures are added, connected to customised controls. These pieces are then lit up for that authentic look and feel. Finally, each shot is rendered to create the final output.
The final stage involves compositing. Bringing together all the rendered elements from the previous stage and compiling it to form a single image sequence, adding post-processing effects to it and as a result, enhancing the entire look and feel. Sound effects are added to give the film another layer and more depth. Background music, soundtracks and voice-overs bring the film alive. Finally, the shots are compiled and edited seamlessly.
