Compositing referers to the process of combining two different clips together. Almost all special effects are heavily reliant on good compositing skills. Traditionally, it has been used to describe mixing digital and real footage together. There is a wide variety of composting software that allows you to chroma key live action or place alpha-channeled digital files in live footage.

Chroma key is the technology wheree a live actor is filmed in front of a blue or green screen, and then the blue or green screen is dropped out to be replaced by whatever back the compositor wishes. There are quite a few blue and green screens on the market, but you can build your own low budget version by hanging a blue or green sheet and filming in front of that.

Another inexpensive solution is to purchase linoleum that can be hung from a ceiling, dropped to the floor, and extended out along the floor. This provides a smooth transition from back wall to floor that, after being painted with a chroma key blue or green, works well as a small blue screen. Remember to keep the blue screen on the floor clean, as any dusty footprints make for very difficult chroma keying.

Another form of compositing is to place digital characters into real footage. To do this, animation clips must be submitted with an alpha channel. Alpha channels are black-and-white channels that define which parts of an image are to be seen and which are to be dropped out. Alpha channels can be embedded within the clip or rendered as a separate clip. The key is to make sure your 3D application knows you wish to create an alpha channel, as trying to knock out a black background from a clip without an alpha channel is next to impossible.

There are as many compositing software packages as there are 3D packages. The selection is quite varied and increases annually. Adobe's AfterEffects is probably the most popular consumer-level compositing package. However, Adobe's Premiere and Apple's Final Cut Pro are also good choices for compositing. Owning one of these software packages is a good idea, even if you do not plan to use real footage with digital files.

Compositing can also be used to composite several digital files together. Different 3D packages do different functions better than others. Often times, the best 3D projects are created in a variety of packages, and then the results are composited together into one animation.

The Power Of A Virtual Camera

The power of a virtual camera often seduces animators to have the camera moving in so many ways and flying through the scene with such abandon that the audience loses track of both what is going on and their lunch. Without the clip is a point-of-view shot for a fly, keep narrative shots as still…

The power of a virtual camera often seduces animators to have the camera moving in so many ways and flying through the scene with such abandon that the audience loses track of both what is going on and their lunch. Without the clip is a point-of-view shot for a fly, keep narrative shots as still as possible. A good storyboard is of paramount importance when it is time to edit.

If the storyboard was carefully conceived and followed through your workflow, it can provide a road map of what to put where and in what order to place clips. If your storyboard held up as you showed it to friends, family, and collections, do not deviate from it as you begin to edit. If you begin to redesign on the fly, you will often end up with sloppy storytelling that loses the tightness established through the storyboard.

As you work with your project and grow to love the characters you are bringing to life, the finished animated clips become like children. You are proud of them and would like the world to see them. However, just like the plethora of pictures that pour forth from the lady on the bus, usually fewer is better. Realize that your first edit of a project is always too long. Show it to your friends and family, and watch for when they begin to lose interest.

Ask them to tell you when they are bored. If they get bored through a section of your animation, chances are the clips are too long or your audience knows too much of the story too soon. I have seen many a student animation have a first edit of 8-10 minutes and end up being 45 seconds after all the extra scenes scenes and footage is cut out.

Once you have begun to master effect gesturing using arcs, and understand weight and how it affects an object, it will be time to move on to one of the most challenging parts of animation: the walk. Bipedal creatures (which include us) use an odd form of propulsion. In a sort of controlled fall, we move our weight forward through friction on the ground of one foot as the other moves to catch our weight before we fall again.

Such is human walking, running, strutting, sneaking, and every other kind of locomotion. Oh, but that is not all! Through this process of controlled falling, the bipedal creature twists, turns, and distances along almost every axis possible in order to maintain balance. It is amazing that although we do it every day without thinking, walking is an immensely complex set of motions.

As we talked about earlier, we all have weight (at least on our earth). In order to balance this weight in all the twists and turns our body does, nature has provided a fairly central point around which most general motion takes place. This center of motion on humans resides about halfway between our button button and crotch.

As we turn, we turn around this point. As we bend, we bend at that point. When we walk, our appendages all flail at different speeds; first one foot is charging ahead while the other places still, and then they swap roles. However, our center of motion always places moving.

Try it. Get up and walk about the room, and notice that from your head to your crotch, you move at a more or less constant rate, while the rest of your body is altering rates or, in the case of your hands, even moving backward. Because we have this center of weight, we can base most all motion around it. We never notice it, but we walk in arches.

Although our mind compensates for the up and down movement, our center of motion and that our torso and our head gently rise and fall as we walk forward. This is due to the fact that when both feet are on the ground during mid-stride, both legs are bent and at a diagonal to our bodies. Then, as the walk cycle continues and all the weight is transferred to one leg, this one leg is nearly completely vertical and we are nearly completely erect.

With this knowledge, this is often a good place to start a walk cycle. With the forward movement gently moving up and down, you have a good start to believable movement. In fact, if the camera is placed from the waist up and we can see the up and down movement, we understand that the character is walking even if we never see his legs.

Analysis Of A Man’s Hop For A 3D Animation

We are going to take a look at a photograph of a man hopping. Once your figure is properly positioned to be ready for action, make sure to place a keyframe. Now, we need to allow the character to anticipate the motion he is going to make (in this case, a standing long jump). Too often, animators forget that believable movement starts well before and ends well after the bulk of the movement actually happens. You may be inclined to begin by animating the arms swinging back as an anticipation of the hop.

However, while this may seem the anticipation of the hop, there is actually an anticipation of this anticipation. For instance, a close inspection of the hopping man photograph reveals that before the man hops, his arms are positioned slightly bent out in front of him. This is the anticipatory act his arms make before their dramatic back swing. Before we even begin the hop, move your current time marker to about 15 frames (about one half of a second), rotate the arms forward, and bend the elbows.

Remember that no actions go unanswered by other parts of the body. Try standing up and swinging your arms back and forth. Take special notice of what the rest of your body is doing. Typically, as the arms swing forward, the shoulders will actually move back a bit in space. So, at these same 15 frames, make sure to rotate your chest and shoulder region back slightly to counterbalance the arm swing. Now, in anticipation of the hop the figure is going to make, swing the arms of the figure very far back and make him squat. The arms are one of the most leveraging tools we have in controlling our body and weight.

Thus, when preparing for a hop, they swing back in anticipation of swinging them forward and backward to propel the body up and forward. The legs are not unlike a spring. In order to harness the power, a spring must first be compressed. The legs, when preparing to make liftoff or exert some great amount of force, will also compress or squat. Move your current time mark to 30 frames (another half second from the last keyframe), and with the arms back and legs compressed, record a keyframe.

Physics Of The Human Hop In 3D Animation

We will look now at how a simple hop (in a generic sense) can be communicated. The example is based on a photograph of the man hopping. To begin, make sure you have created a bounced figure or one that you have IK'ed that will allow you to concentrate on the motion of the activity rather than spending a lot of time on the technicalities of IK.

You may wish to create a set of bones, or simply use a character you have already created. Either way, make sure that you have defined the appropriate ranges of movements if you plan to use IK. If you wish to use FK, there is no need to define constants, as you will be totally controlling the range of movement manually. To begin, let's make sure that the figure is standing appropriately.

The stand may seem like an odd place to start the study of motion; however, too many great motions are spoiled by stiff figures that appear unnatural when not involved in a given motion. The trick to the stand is to remember that our joints are not often completely straight. Some folks lock their knees when they stand, but usually there is a slight bend to the knee and a slight bend at the elbow. Look at your own elbow as you stand up and you will find that you almost never have a locked elbow.

The center of weight is directly above the feet, and the legs are slightly spread to further show balance. Also notice that the arms are not laid directly to the side of the body, and that there is a slight bend to the back. If you are using a single mesh for the character for this exercise, consider using a more complex arch of the back The highlighted light is the beginning of the small of the back, while a new IK chain runs into the buttocks.

After completing all the modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering, and re-rendering, it finally becomes time to put it all together. The editing process is one of the most important parts of a project, yet it often receives the least amount of time. For some reason, as the animation process moves along, we get so wrapped up in the intricacies of motion or the technical concerns of good lighting that we leave little or no time to put all these works of art together. Do not cut yourself short when it comes to editing.

Good editing can make a bad project look good through clever cutting and good sound, and make good projects better by assisting in the story flow. NLDV (Non-Linear Digital Video) Editing in 3D is usually done in software that allows for placing clips (both movies and sound) together to produce one cohesive story.

Adobe's Premiere, Apple's Final Cut Pro, iMovie, or QuickTime Pro are all good consumer-level editing packages that are fairly easy to work with and have an easy learning curve. The process in all packages is similar: Collect your movie and sound clips into “bins” and then place them within a time-line. Many of these editing applications will allow for a variety of transitions between clips.

Beware, though: Use shifts sparingly. Audiences today are not used to a lot of different transitions, and they come across as simply tacky. Unless you have a very strong reason to do otherwise, keep transitions to “quick-cuts” (cutting directly from one clip to the next) and “cross-dissolves.” Take one segment of any television show-say, between commercial breaks-and count how many cuts the editor has placed.

Often, there are more than 70 such cuts in one short segment from different camera angles. We as an audience are used to seeing the same scene from different angles. It keeps us interested as the visual elements shift and keeps us oriented as we are not limited to just one point of view. With this established convention of lots of quick-cuts, keep your own cuts short and the narrative moving. Beware of “seasick scenes.”

Anticipation And Follow-Through In 3D Animation

Anticipation and follow-through are always essential to any motion. There is one more important aspect to making a believable hop: timing. Timing is one often-overlooked aspect that is vital to effective motion. A sure sign of amateur hopping is “one speed hops”; that is, a hop that is the same speed when it takes off,…

Anticipation and follow-through are always essential to any motion. There is one more important aspect to making a believable hop: timing. Timing is one often-overlooked aspect that is vital to effective motion. A sure sign of amateur hopping is “one speed hops”; that is, a hop that is the same speed when it takes off, crests, and lands. In actuality, an object's speed changes fairly dramatically over the course of almost all motion; and the hop is no exception.

When people jump, there is an initial burst of speed as they push off the ground with enough force to cause them to be airborne. As their “flight” reaches its crest, their speed slows as their upward momentum tapers off. When they reach the crest of their jump, their speed in an up-down direction slows to a near stop, as the momentum begins to shift downward. The farther they have to fall, the faster they move, until they are moving quite fast when they hit the ground on the other side of their jump.

Imagine a ball making a well-timed hop. Notice the fast launch, the slowing as it reaches its peak, its near stop at the crest, and the fast decent. As a key, remember that the farther apart the shot of the ball is, the faster the object is moving. These is still a multitude of other character-establishing Touches that could have been added to this particular animation. Objects can actually hop with all sorts of movement that express power, diminutiveness, attitude, and so forth.

However, good hops and motion in general are based on some important principles that can be learned from real-world examination. Even if the animated object is far from real world, a viewer will only buy in to the motion presented if he can relate it (even on a subconscious level) to what he knows in reality. Once the ideas behind stretch and squash are well understood for an object as simple as a ball, they can be translated into use for more complex characters.

There are many more character-establishing and weight-defining techniques. The hop example given here is a great one to start with because it allows for complete animation with just movement, rotation, and scale tools. Master the concepts behind the arc and stretch and squash, and other movements will come much easier.

3D Animation Compositions And Shot Combination

Although all of the different shots of an animation like the close-up, medium shot and long shot have tremendous power in their own right, none can stand alone.

Although all of the different shots of an animation like the close-up, medium shot and long shot have tremendous power in their own right, none can stand alone.

Almost every TV show or movie that we see is a wide variety of camera shots that first establish locale, then establish physical relationships of characters, and then pull the audience in with close-up shots of the characters. We may not have noticed it consciously, but shots rarely last more than a few seconds.

We forget in 3D animation the power of shifting shots. A combination of shots is usually more effective than one long shot that tries to accomplish everything. A good formula for shot combination is as follows:

1. Begin with an exposure long shot that orients the audience to where the action is taking place. This shot may be a slight pan or zoom shot.

2. Cut to a medium shot that allows the audience to understand where your characters are in relation to each other. Are there any characters that are close enough to hit or hug another character? Do any seem to be clinging to other characters, or are some avoiding some characters?

3. Move to a close-up that allows us insight into the characters feel about the present situation. Are they playing emotional games? These sorts of shots can give us information about a character and his state of mind that may not be available to other characters in the scene Once close-up shots have been established and we know where everyone is in relation to one another (from the long and medium shots), most of the rest of the scene is a series of close-ups.

Occidentally, when the entrance or exit of another character is relevant, a long shot to show it may be appropriate. The important thing to remember about formulas in 3D is that they should never be viewed as absolute. The whole point of new media is the ability to push things in new directions; however, we should not make such large jumps that our audience is confused and unable to understand the visual narrative of our animations.

First Times Of 3D Animation

In 1850, the railroad tycoon Leland Stanford asked a photographer named Edward Muybridge to set a long-time debate.

In 1850, the railroad tycoon Leland Stanford asked a photographer named Edward Muybridge to set a long-time debate. The debate had to do with whether a horse ever had all four legs in the air as it ran. Muybridge used a series of glass-plated cameras triggered by rubber bands and wire to photograph the animal. His photographs of the “flying horse” made him an international sensation.

As his setup became more complex, he was able to capture more and more series of motions, including human motion. His subsequent discovery that these series of images, when viewed in rapid succession, produced what looked to be motion, earned him the title of “Father of Motion Pictures.” His exhibits inspired the likes of Thomas Edison, who soon began his own work on motion picture photography. Among Muybridge's photography are several series of people in the act of jumping.

By analyzing these series of photographs, we can get a good idea of ​​the mechanics behind a body in motion. This sort of study is very important in depicting a self-propelled body. Some vitally important concepts can be learned from this composed photograph. For instance, an aspect that seems rather intuitive, but often forgotten, is the idea that an object orients itself in the direction that it is propelling itself.

One key element behind good motion is that when an object is in motion, it will orient itself in the direction that it is moving. As the figure reaches its crest, its orientation shifts so that its feet are facing the direction the body is traveling. This motion is a good start and certainly better than the original ball animation, but still, the ball is simply too rigid to be believable.

Weight is central to the idea of ​​stretch and squash. That is, in order to make an object appear as though it has weight, there must be an anticipation and appearance of stress. In we can image a jumping man crouching, bending like a spring in anticipation of his leap. This kind of movement signals to the viewer that there is weight that needs to be propelled, and that the crouching anticipation called the squash.

Likewise, when the motion is stopped, or the object lands, there is a similar squashing as the weight comes to bear against the surface that stops its motion. Just as important in stretch and squash is the stretch that occurs between “lift off” and “land fall.”

An object squashes in anticipation of propelling itself forward / upward, then stretches in anticipation of its coming crest, squashes as its weight lifts from an upward motion to a downward motion, stretches again in anticipation of landing, and then squashes when it hits the ground . For this particular animation, I have added little hiccup in the middle of the hop where the squash at the crest of the hop is accentuated to give the character a very rubbery effect, as though its base is heavier than its top.

Concepts of Believable Movement

How it moves is more important than what moves. Although what moves is important, in relative order of importance, it is how it moves that is the important thing …

What the animator does on each frame of film is not as important as what he or she does in between. “” Beautiful models are great, fantastic texts are wonderful, but all is for naught if the movement is unbelievable and stale. many intricacies to animation that the topic describes a library dedicated to the art.

Many of these intricate details can only be learned through intense study of real life, footage, and the work of past animation masters. There are, however, a few very important ideas that will assist in creating good animation as you start out. Your 3D application will set in-between frames between keyframes that define where the object should be at every point in the animation.

Although often the computer's interpolation is in a rounded path, it tends to choose the shortest path between two keyframes. For example, if you are animating a head turning from side to side, and you set a keyframe at the point where the head is looking one direction, and another keyframe when the head is looking the other direction, the computer's guess of interpolation is a direct curve in the shortest path.

Unfortunately, organic motion is rarely in a straight path. Almost always, our movements take place in arcs or curved arcs. This dip in the head-turning process is typical of adjustments that need to be made in organic 3D animation. Keep in mind that although your 3D application is fairly good at making curved paths, these curved paths are often inaccurate to portray good movement. Although keyframe economy is good (do not insert more than are needed), do not cheat your movement by not giving enough keyframes to define good, believable movement.

Principles Of Forward Kinematics

Let's do a little animation on an articulated wooden man. Before we begin, make sure to organize him hierarchically so he can be moved easily. Now, let's rotate him so he is facing the mirror. Now we can use Forward Kinematics to rotate the biceps of the wooden man to his sides. Now, record a…

Let's do a little animation on an articulated wooden man. Before we begin, make sure to organize him hierarchically so he can be moved easily. Now, let's rotate him so he is facing the mirror.

Now we can use Forward Kinematics to rotate the biceps of the wooden man to his sides. Now, record a keyframe for the shoulders to give your computer a starting point. Then move the current time marker to about 30 frames and repose the dummy using FK by moving the biceps, then the forearm, and finally the hand into a buff posing position, and then record a keyframe. Repeat the process for the other arm, record a keyframe, and then refine the head and neck so the dummy is looking at the mirror.

We can further refine this particular pose by moving the current time marker back to 0 frames and recording a keyframe for the chest. Then move the current time marker back to 30 frames and rotate the chest forward and the head up. Record a keyframe. We will use IK to animate the lower body. First, be sure to create an effector or a null object that will nail down the ankles of the character. Create a goal object, or IK target, at the base of each heel.

Then, assign each leg to point towards its relative goal or target. Now, record a keyframe for the target or goal at 0 frames. Move the current time marker to 15 frames, then move the target into the air as the first part of a step forward, and watch the leg follow into position. Record a keyframe. Next, move the current time marker to 30 frames and place the target / goal on the floor again a little in front of the original position.

Record a keyframe and then adjust the angle on the back foot to show that there is no weight on it since all the weight has shifted to the front foot. The motion of the dummy making a pose in front of the mirror is complete. Now that we have spent all this time looking at IK and FK chains and how they work, let's take a look at a couple of ways that bones can be used within chains. When a bone is attached to a group of polygons, all those polygons are affected no matter how the bone is altered.

Most IK and FK functions are focused on the idea of ​​bone rotation. However, bones can also be resized, and the polygons attached will resize as well. Figure 10.18 is a simple sphere with one bone set in the middle. This may seem an overly simple example; after all, this sphere could simply be resized without the use of bones.

However, with complex models, one bone can control a multitude of objects and shapes even if they are not grouped. Bones can also be created and set up in nonchain formats. These two bones are set up in tangent to the oil tank shape, but still are just as effective.

Digital illustration finds its application in several areas where information through computer is delivered. With the advent of advanced digital technology, the demand for digital illustrators has greatly increased. If you are new to this field and wants to know the benefit or pursuing it as your career accomplishment, then this article is the best place for you to know about everything regarding digital illustration. It is actually an innovative technique through which you can create original artwork and convert them in digital form.

Digital illustration has replaced the traditional need for hand drawing and thus is capable of giving more flexibility for the new emerging illustrators to combine their skills and knowledge with all the available advanced tools and software to create highly appealing computer arts. You can make use of innovative image editing software and illustration techniques to create digitally enhanced images that become more realistic and accurate when completed. While creating unique art forms with the help of computer, you can enhance your skill in providing better visual impact to the illustrations in shorter time. You can utilize more advanced digital tools, including the 3D features to create 3 dimensional models of life forms and nature. You can also manipulate the digitally enhanced art work in such a way that it can be corrected and edited easily. You can add or delete images so that it gives you better control on them.

A digital illustrator is trained with the knowledge of using all the available digital tools of today and is updated with newer features added day by day. They make use of graphic tablet and other digital features to create amazing artwork. An illustrator can draw on the graphic tablet with a pen attached to it through the computer. You can also use the mouse of the computer for creating digital illustrations. But in most cases, the pen provides more control in drawing than the mouse. The graphic tablets are also designed with better pressure sensitivity that enhances the comfort for drawing. You can either use a raster based digital illustration or vector based illustration. Drawing software is mostly vector-based and the image editing software being raster-based.

In September, 2010, the Pokemon Generation V collection was released. There are approximately 155 completely new characters. They vary from previous Pokemon character designs as a new artist drew them. Although there is not much known yet about these characters, which ones seem to be the most popular?

So far only a handful of these characters have become known. Tsutarja, Pokabu, Mijumaru, Emonga, Kibago, Meguroko, Mamepato, Munna and Musharna were all made in small plush toys already, so they seem to be quite popular. Tsutarja, Pokabu and Mijumaru are probably the most popular of the characters so far. These seem to be the three main characters of the new generation V set of characters. Tsutarja is a snake, Pokabu is a pig and Mijumaru is an otter.Emonga is also quite known among children. It is some kind of flying squirrel. Kio seems to be a lizard type character, Meguroko is an alligator, Mamepato is a bird and Munna and Musharna seem to be based on Tapirs.

In addition to the above 9 characters, large versions of Reshiram and Zekrom have also been made. Being the main stars of the new Pokemon Black and White video game, these two characters are black and white futurized dragon type characters. These two characters seem to resemble Digimon characters rather than pokemon, but are still hugely popular.

In October, 2010, some new characters will be disclosed. I have heard that this time it will be Hiyappu, Baokki, Yanappu which are monkeys, Minezumi which is a chipmunk, Yorterrie which is a Yorkshire Terrier and Churine which is some sort of onion I believe.

In addition, there is supposed to be a larger size plush toy made of Jyanobii which is the evolved form of Tsutarja, Chaobu which is the evolved form of Pokabu, and Futachimaru which is the evolved form of Mijumaru. These are the first three of the evolved characters and should be very popular with Pokemon fans.

With so many new characters, it is hard to wonder if these will be as popular as previous versions. The older artist was so popular that this new artist has some big shoes to fill.

One Piece is a story of a young man named Monkey D. Luffy who was inspired by the pirate, Red-Haired Shanks. Early on in the series, 22 years before the present timeline, a pirate named Gold Roger, generally known as the Pirate King had been executed. However, before his death, Gold Roger told the crowd about his treasure, “One Piece”. His death sparked what might become the Golden Era of Pirates as countless pirates set out to look for his treasure. The main character, Luffy becomes a pirate, who dreams of becoming the next Pirate King and sets out to recruit crewmates and begin his adventures. This tells the plot of One Piece. Nonetheless, this anime did not become great over night. One Piece has a great history that would allow it to become what everyone monitors to be the greatest manga ever created.

One Piece all began with the creator, Eiichiro Oda. Eiichiro Oda was inspired by Akira Toriyama's Dragonball and Dr. Slump at a young age. Since childhood, he took a liking to Vikings and he aspired to turn into a manga artist. Afterwards, Oda created Pandaman for Yudetamago's Kinnikuman. During 1992, Oda at age 17, posted the manga called Required. This got him noticed, enough to be able to join the staff in the Weekly Shonen Jump paper. There, he became an assistant under several established manga freelance writers including Shinobu Kaitani, Masaya Tokuhiro, and Last but not least, Nobuhiro Watsuki. Oda had wanted to make a pirate manga from his obsession with vikings during his youth, and he was also inspired through various pirate events like the discovery of the pirate vessel of Edward Teach, also known as Bleackbeard. He wrote two separate one-shots during the mid-1990s, both of which were called “Romance Dawn”.

The stories introduced Monkey D. Luffy, the straw-hat wearing boy who attempts to sail the sea to become a legendary pirate. Several concepts on the contemporary serialization appeared within these stories, including Luffy's inspiration for being a pirate and the mysterious power he gained from eating a special fruit that turned his body into rubber. Some may recognize this idea as it relates to One Piece's concept regarding Devil Fruits.

Around August 1997, Oda took the majority of his “Romance Dawn” ideas and started using them inside a weekly serial under the particular title “One Piece”. It had been first serialized in Shonen Jump, the weekly shonen magazine owned and operated by Shueisha. The actual series quickly started on and became popular during the initial chapters and onwords, establishing itself as one of the premiere manga series inside the magazine. At first, Oda wanted his series running for 5 years, meaning One Piece would have ended in 2002, yet he went longer than expected. Right now, everyone has no idea how many more years his story will probably take. Oda had already planned the ending from the start of One Piece. After just how long it will take him in order to complete it, he said he'll end One Piece the way he planned from the start.

One Piece has since spanned across the borders of Japan becoming something larger than a simple pirating tale. As time passes from its serialization, One Piece has taken different directions in its storyline at times wavering from the initial focus of the pursuit to become Pirate King. One Piece has even been noted to include many themes such as what treasure is, the meaning of justice along with the concept of chasing dreams.
