Types of Animation
For instance, there are animations which are done with a clay called Clay Animation or claymation, stop motion animation, etc.
But mainly Animation is divided into two parts:-
- 2D Animation:- 2D animation deals with two-dimensional figures. Ideally, they
are hand drawn pictures which are given movements. Flipbook is an example of 2D Animation.
3D Animation:- As the name suggests, it deals with three-dimensional objects. Normally an image has length and breadth( ‘x’ and ‘y’ axis), but 3D has what is called as the depth or the ‘z’ axis. A simple would be a cube.
Here are the steps of 3D Animation:
Modeling: Modelling is the basic phase of animation in which models of surfaces, characters, background, props, and locations are built. There are various Animation software’s which can be used for Modelling. Some popular
ones are Autodesk Maya, 3ds Max, etc. Z brush, Mud box are some of the sculpting software. These are industry standard software.
Texturing-Texturing comes after modeling, where the models are made to look realistic. Every character, props( short for properties), and the surface is modified through textures. Again there are various specialized software’s out there in the market to achieve this.
Lighting and Shading: Lighting and shading can make or break an animated clip. The shadows, lights, and all the different angles and intensities in a frame are set through lighting and shading. This is so important to animation as it creates the mood of a character, defines a particular ambiance.
Rigging– This process involves putting bones inside a character and prepares it for animation
Animation: The word “Animate means to give life“.This is the stage where the character is able to move.
Rendering: This is the final stage of an Animation production pipeline. Here, we get the final output of a project.
