FAQ

What Is 3D Animation?

3D animation is the creation of characters, objects, and backgrounds in motion. For example, if an artist creates characters, an animator enlivens them in the three-dimensional space with the help of digital technologies like 3ds Max, Maya, ZBrush, Marvelous Designer, Substance Painter, Houdini, Cinema 4D. These 3D animation tools allow experts to move objects and characters in any direction, thus, making them more believable and realistic in particular environments. 3D artists often participate in a few early stages to provide necessary services and guarantee proper character and environment design.

3D animation is widely used in films, cartoons, commercials, and, especially, in the video game industry. There are many 3D animation production studios. To be able to create 3D animation, it is necessary for animation makers to have the sound technical knowledge and in-depth practical experience with graphics computer software. They can use any other piece of software to meet a particular need or/and requirement. Each 3D animation studio has its own approach to creating animations and its own style, which can be studied by looking at their portfolio.

What Are the Stages of 3D Animation?

To create high-quality 3D animation, it is required to pass through the following stages:

  1. Pre-planning and planning of all stages necessary for the animation. What are the objects/characters that will be animated? At this stage, it is vital to set objectives for each scene. Thumbnailing can be a great way to really quickly implement a lot of ideas in posing, actions, composition, etc.
  2. Blocking (or also called a layout design) where the main poses of the entire animation are established and shown, a kind of script for a 3D animator to follow in the process. Going through the whole scene in thumbnails, a specialist set the timing and “block” the placement of objects in each animation frame. They manipulate on a frame-by-frame basis. There are two techniques of blocking – using stepped or spline curves.
  3. Proper lighting. 3D models must be under proper light in animation. For that reason, various virtual light sources can be used to real-life scenes even if they are related to virtual reality.
  4. Final rendering. Then, when 3D models are textured and lit as required, the rendering process starts. A specialist transfers created images to compositing programs and extracts the necessary data from them. After that, they are combined to create the final animation frames.

These are the stages that any animation company follows, regardless of its work style.

How to Hire 3D Animators?

3D animation is extremely popular nowadays: animators are preoccupied with advertising, film and video production and gaming projects. So, the talent pool may be insufficient, and you may be disappointed in finding qualified 3D animators for hire. Or otherwise, you can be packed with so many job adverts that you can easily get lost. The first principle is to filter your search for specialists based on the engagement model you’re going to cooperate with. Whether it is freelancing, outsourcing or full-time in-house employment. Be sure the list of potential candidates will be reduced, and the only thing left is to find best 3D animators for hire. How to do it effectively and quickly and find optimal services?

Without any doubt, you can rely on external recruitment or outstaffing services with the help of which you won’t spend much time. It is extremely crucial to address such agencies if you have no expertise in 3D animation. As you should make sure of the candidate’s qualifications, you must be well-informed at least about common terms or software used in 3D animation (Autodesk Maya, 3ds Max, Blender, etc.) Primarily, you should look at the 3D animation portfolio. Secondly, conduct an interview during which try to find out more details about work experience. Also, provide information about the future project as much as possible. After that, feel free to hire an expert you are 100% sure in.

Why Outsource 3D Animation Services?

Modern technology makes it possible to take full advantage of outsourcing services. Indeed, it is a widely-spread practice among companies of all sizes to outsource most functions, including 3D animation, to 3D studios. If it isn’t your specialization, you should also consider this option: there are many professional 3D animation studios that can help you. You can find good reasons to apply to a 3D animation outsourcing company: totally customized services, the quick formation of a team, relevant staff expertise, as a result, fast outputs of high quality. Thus, the animation company saves you from the most problematic issues and leaves room only for creativity.

When outsourcing to a 3D animation company, you’re supposed to share all the ideas about your project(s). Even if there is no idea, a professional team will provide you with project ideas according to your tastes, demands and business needs. As a rule, outsourcing 3D animation production companies are always ready to offer a competent staff at the request relatively quickly. Their professional competence is rarely debatable as most of them set a high value on a reputation, which is built on an impressive list of works in animation, for example.
