Cracking the Code: Unravel the Complexity Behind 3D Animation

What makes 𝟑𝐃 animation more difficult?

In 3D animation, many of the technical factors to consider do not apply to 2D animation. First and foremost, when you create a scene, you need to create all of your characters separately from any background or environment. For example, for walking you need a file for each limb: arms, legs, torso, and head.

Additionally, these elements are combined into what are called rigs, which give the character various gestures and movements. From here, it’s all about creating your characters with intricate details that bring them to life, which is where technical know-how like rigging and animation come into play.

What is Blender software and why should you start using it?

Blender is a 3D software that has been around since 2002, and since then, it has grown in popularity, so much so that it has become one of the most popular 3D modeling programs today.
It has millions of users around the world – including indie filmmakers, game developers, industrial designers, architects and many other fields where 3D modeling is essential.

Here’s everything you need to know about Blender 3D software and why you should start using it Open source and free.

1. Open source and free :

Blender 3D is an open-source and free, cross-platform software that has been around since 2002. The program offers advanced features typically found in more expensive applications such as Maya or Autodesk. Nevertheless, Blender can run on almost any computer due to its advanced architecture.

2. Complicated Interface :

The Blender interface takes some getting used to. Its user interface is different from other programs, even Maya and Autodesk. However, everything from modeling to animation becomes much easier once you know how to use it. The most notable advantage of Blender’s UI is its visual nature: when working with your 3D model, only the tabs needed for a specific action will be shown. It navigates around your scene faster than other programs, where each option has to be accessed through multiple menus.

3. Hundreds of tutorial :

Blender has hundreds of online tutorials. Not only are these tutorials free, but you can learn how to use Blender by watching these tutorials. The funny thing is, most tutorials can be completed in just a few minutes or hours.

4. Both 3d animation and 2d animation :

Blender is suitable for both 3d animation and 2d animation. You can use Blender to create movies, games, 3d graphics, architectural visualization, scientific visualization, product visualization, etc. There are tons of free tutorials on YouTube that will help you learn how to use Blender in no time. Blender flame is a bit difficult at first, but once you get used to it, you can easily make a lot of things.

5. Beneficial communities/groups :

One of my favorite things about open source projects like Blender is that they offer a helpful community/group that anyone can join. If there’s something you don’t understand, chances are there are other people just like you who want to know about it, so asking your questions in these communities/groups can get answers. Also, watch tutorials or live streams from people with more experience than you; You may find some valuable information!

6. PracticePractice and Practice :

The best way to get used to any new hardware or software is to practice. Don’t just read how to use tools like blenders; Instead, learn by doing. After all, practice makes perfect and eventually you will succeed with the effort you put in.

3. Know the design principles 📜 :

  • Hierarchy – Pay attention to what is presented first in a design, what information is presented, what color and what type of text is used in which design element.
  • Content – What kind of words are used, which words/sentences are highlighted, how spacing is used etc.
  • Intent – Why was this design created? What kind of problem does it solve? And how can it be improved so that it can better solve the problem?
