The English version of my FREE 3D animation training series is almost ready. I am having very good response to the original Marathi training, ‘चला शिकूया 3D Animation!‘. I will soon start posting the English version. I hope you will like it.
The complete series will introduce to you, various aspects of 3D graphics and we will talk about animation as well. We will discuss right from script writing, storyboards and 3D modeling, animation upto editing and post production. To have a practical and application oriented approach, we will be studying the complete making of a short film. Here is the finish short film.
I am feeling very happy to present to you this short-film. This is a story of ‘Tingu’, a little lamp, trying to resolve the magic cube. After struggling a lot and still not being able to solve, he finally gets angry. At the end, ‘Tingu’ finds the cube resolving ‘magically’.
This short-film is developed by students and fresher 3d artists, at ADVAITA STUDIOS. Everybody enjoyed working on this project and everybody worked hard too, while learning. This is a part of a big free training series (currently in marathi) called- ‘चला शिकूया 3D Animation’. This free training series covers most of the fundamental things about 3D animation and also about computer graphics in general.
We hope that you will like and enjoy this short film. Please give us your feedback and/or suggestions, about any of the aspect of this film. Also if you have any questions or doubts about any aspect of 3D animation field, please feel free to ask us. We will be gladly replay!
Since 2003, I have been asked for guidance, so many times, about making career in 3D animation field. Most of the questions are from parents asking for their 10th or 12th std children. And other are from those who want to enter in the field themselves.
Out of all the queries, I have shortlisted these 3, which I think are the most important ones:
Most of them were asking me to give more information and a broader overview of the sector. According to them, such kind of information is not readily and easily available. Most newspaper or magazine articles are promotional and NOT informative. They don’t get a cumulative or sorted out information from such articles.
I was also asked by many, to provide in-depth and application oriented training. They have experience that, most of the famous training institutes charge very high amount of fees, but there is less guaranty for real application oriented training. Continue reading →
‘Jurekoon‘ requested me to upload the lamp rig file
Regarding my post “Pixar luxo Jr. Lamp riggint test”. So instead of just putting the file again, I thought to simply show how to creat a parametric spring in blender by using its screw modifier. So here’s how: Continue reading →
Here is a new query added by ‘Shashikant’ in the Visitor’s Wish-list –
“I tried linking a character in blender, it works. But when I duplicated that character (after linking), it follows same animation to each other. Please anyone tell me what will be the best option to solve this problem.”
Well Shashikant, I guess this problem is only with windows. If you try it in Linux then this should not be a problem. Still if you want multiple copies of the same character to animate separately in windows, then you can duplicate them first in the main scene file, with different names. And then try importing each copy.
After a long (Commercial) break, we resume back to the home production project82 animation work. Shashikanta and Parag are now working on some parts of animation and Shivraj is on material and textures finalisation. Here is a latest work-in-progress images of Shashikanta’s animation part.
