ABOUT COURSE

3D animation is when computer generated objects appear to move through three-dimensional space. In 3D animation, objects can be moved and rotated following the same principles as in real life. Computer animation makes use of 3D computer graphics to create a two-dimensional moving picture that depicts three dimensions. 3D animation is used in industries as diverse as gaming, Television and Movies, Commercials and Other Advertising, Marketing, Architecture and Design, Simulations, Retail, Prototyping, and medicine. They are commonly used for presentations and marketing across all industries.
Animation is when images of figures are manipulated to appear to the human eye as though they are moving. In traditional animation, images are drawn individually to be photographed or put onto film. Another kind of traditional animation is called stop motion animation. With this, three dimensional figures are painstakingly committed to film, frame by frame, being moved slightly between shots. With 3D animation, all of the images are created using computer graphics. The process of giving movement and life to these objects is divided into three main parts: modeling, layout and animation, and rendering.

At it’s most basic form, animation is an illusion, a trick of the eye, allowing us to see movement in a rapid succession of images. In order to trick the eye, the frames should move at a minimum of 12 frames a second, although there are instances where even slower speeds are used for effect. However, for 3D animation to appear as though movement is naturally occurring in three-dimensional space, a much faster speed of frames per second is required, 24 at a minimum, with no still frames in between.

Objects are created with 3D models and then manipulated within 3D software. These manipulations allow for picture sequences to be exported that make it appear as though movement is occurring in a 3D digital environment.

WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU ENROLL?

Animation is an emerging medium of communication. More and more learners are aspiring to learn and make a career in this domain.
Animation is an ever-changing industry. You’ve surely noticed that the animation style you grew up with as a kid has morphed into something entirely new. Well, since the very beginning, animation has been evolving into what we see today. 
Although it’s easy to assume that the animation we see today is already at its highest quality, there’s no doubt that it will get better in the future. In the past, we watched movies only in 2D animation, but now we can watch them in 3D and even in virtual reality.
Animation has been in demand and part of the economy way before the pandemic, but this caused an enormous boom in tv animation for children and adults.
Animation will no longer be seen as simply “for kids.” Instead, it will continue its elevation towards equality with live-action films and shows. Animated programs have attracted an audience outside of just people who watch shows on television.
The future of animation is mobile. So is the future of many forms of content. Worldwide, more people are consuming content on mobile devices than on DVD or even in the cinema. Short-form animation and games, which require a lot of animation, are extremely popular. Across the world there are millions who have advanced mobile devices yet do not even have electricity in their homes. The demand for content is growing immeasurably and the artists and animators who strive to meet that demand will find great success.
