From your smartphone to your television, from billboards to pamphlets, it is hard to find any form of media where 3D models, animation, or shapes are not used. Ever since we became proficient with 3-dimensional graphics and gained the technology to create them quickly, 3D has become a huge part of things that we see every day. However, we rarely stop to think about what it takes to make these models and animation.
Software (also known as programs and applications) is a major help to animators all over the world, including those who work with two-dimensional graphics. This kind of animation is most often associated with children’s cartoons of the past century, but the popularity and prevalence of 2D animation software did not wane after we began to harness the benefits of 3D. In fact, relying on such applications are still in great demand and used everywhere, from video games to TV shows to advertisements to educational clips.
When we think of video games and blockbuster movies, we tend to imagine 2 different spectacles. On one hand, you have the sleek and artificial characters and settings of games that are obviously part of a computer-generated world. On the other hand, you have a world in a film that looks like it could be part of our own, even with some fantastic elements added.
What is VFX?
When we hear the term visual effects, many of us imagine colorful and fantastic creatures, action sequences, fantasy worlds, and other unique visuals one can see on a cinema screen. Although we are accustomed to seeing visual effects in our movies and TV shows and generally associate them with some sci-fi and fantasy elements, they have a much broader range of use.
CAD software, such as AutoCAD, is used to create digital technical drawings and build 2D and 3D models. One of the main advantages of CAD software is the ability to function as a database for manufacturing purposes conveying information about the BOM (bill of materials) and realistic technical description of a product.
In this article, we will focus on how you can use your 3D content in various situations when you need to develop games rapidly. Let’s get right into it.
