What is a 3D Animation?:

The field of 3D animation is extensive, Also known as 3D CGI or visual storytelling, it is both exciting and new for both the creator as well as the audience.
In recent years as the popularity of 3D animated movies and television shows has grown, so has the industry.
Movies like “The Croods” and “Cars”, or “Ice Age” and “The Incredibles” are all examples of 3D animation.

In the world of animation, there are two types of animators, 2D and 3D. Essentially, they do the same job.
Both suggest new ideas, usually to a team, complete a certain amount of research to ensure their ideas are original and engaging, then render them on paper, or with the use of computer software but that’s where the similarities end.

In simplest terms, 2D animators create flat images, which have width and height but no depth.
3D animation is more realistic because of the addition of depth, adding depth creates more life-like characters, and it is much easier for 3D animators to make changes to a scene because they can move or transfer an object more easily, whereas, in 2D animation, the animator must draw the scene all over again if any changes are necessary.

People who work in the field of three-dimensional (3D) animation create visual effects and animated characters for television, video games, and other electronic media.
Many animators work in the movie and film industry.
3D animators create moving images using digital models and add details to the pictures, such as landscapes, skin color, or clothing and bout half are self-employed, and many choose to specialize.

To create 3D animation, they create drawings or take photographs of an actress or actor’s movements and then use computer software like Cinema 4D, Maya, MotionBuilder, Mudbox, FBX, and more, to convert them into cartoon characters.
Some 3D animators choose to specialize in scenery or background development in the movie and television industry, while others decide to become video game designers who are responsible for creating the entire look, feel, and functionality of a game, in addition to creating the 3D animation.

What Does a 3D Animator Do?

Someone who works as a 3D animation artist may also have the job title of multimedia artist.
In a typical day, they take on a variety of responsibilities for the purpose of planning and crafting their art form.
Some of the specific job duties of a 3D animator may include:

- Creating animation and graphics with the aid of computer illustrations and software programs.
- Spending time researching the project to get ideas for animation.
- Creating a working model of scenes to be animated in movies, television, or video games.

This process is called storyboarding. - Receiving feedback from clients and the rest of the design staff and incorporating the responses into project edits.
Animators can be self-employed and will meet with clients to plan the scope of the work, or they will work with a team of other animators and creative professionals.

If traditionally employed, 3D animators meet with actresses and actors, directors, game designers, and other animators to decide on specific job functions and establish deadlines for each part of the project.

In addition to strong artistic, visual imaging, and computer skills, it is essential for 3D animators to possess the skills to work as part of a team.
Even working with a client directly requires accepting input from someone else about the creative process, which often makes it necessary to compromise for the greater good of the project.
3D animators also need strong organizational skills, attention to even the smallest details (like wind blowing leaves on a tree or a character winking).

They need strong design and art skills, good communication and observational skills, and must possess artistic talent, along with proficiency in animation technology.
Knowledge in the use of a digital camera, digital paper and pen (such as Solidtek Acecad or Wacom Bamboo), and video compression encoding processes is also essential to compete and succeed in this competitive field.

In addition, 3D animators must have a feel for timing and movement, know when to edit, how men and women move differently, what backgrounds work best for a particular scene, etc.
Following the lead of a director or animation director, they will refer to existing layouts, models, designs, and characters when creating the illusion of movement that will appear on the screen.

Where Do 3d Animators Work?

Most people with jobs in 3D animation work in offices.
3D character animators may also work in film and video production studios, public relations offices, advertising agencies, for software publishers, graphic design firms, computer systems design firms, web design firms, and teach at colleges and universities.
They typically have a workstation with a large drawing board, a computer, and numerous software programs that enable them to complete their work.
Some may work out of their own home or rent office space if they are self-employed.
People in this profession usually work full-time during typical office hours, but need to remain flexible to work in the evening or on weekends when deadlines are approaching.

Related Art Careers & Occupations

People who work as 3D animators may eventually progress to the position of art director.
Responsibilities for this position include directing and supervising the work of a team of artists, as well as determining the budget and progression of a project.
Working in the television or movie industry would be a good fit for a 3D animator who wants to advance his or her career.

Graphic or web design are two similar occupations that might interest those with animation training and experience.
Graphic designers primarily create visual concepts, either manually or with the aid of a computer program.
The purpose of their work is to inspire interest in potential customers or clients through advertisements, magazines, reports, websites, and other types of electronic and non-electronic media.

Graphic designers create the overall layout of a job and coordinate the production design with others on the creative team.
Web developers are responsible for designing and testing new websites before they are made available to the public.
Their work defines the look and function of a site more than anyone else who contributes to its development.
Web developers may also produce content for the site.
Their work also has a highly technical aspect as they constantly assess traffic patterns to ensure that the website can perform up to capacity regardless of the number of people who access it.
