The success of 3D Animation

3D animation uses a combination of wireframe building blocks and rendered skin to provide three dimensional volume to graphics created within a computer graphics engine.

These were originally developed as simple wireframe images. The first fully CGI movie would have been 1986’s “The Works” which began production in 1979, but production problems forced the project to be canceled. The next feature to make it to the big screen was PIXAR’s 1995 movie Toy Story. Since then 3D animation has moved into our everyday lives, from long animated films, to 3D animated titles and graphics in TV shows and commercials.

3D animation begins with the creating of wire frame objects within a 3D environment. Skins are then rendered over the wireframe images. By rendering skins, light sources and texture mapping can be added for a greater sense of realism. Adding text into titles can blend information and style in a whole new way. 3D animation can be added to video, websites, presentations and slideshows. MAGIX developed its 3D animation tool to be used in conjunction with many of its core products, and has integrated it within many of its premium versions. 3D Maker as a standalone is compatible with many other programs. Importing animated text from the program shell is easy.
