3D - Computer Animation
The most well-known technique of animation besides traditional animation is computer-generated 3-dimensional animation created with the help of software like Maya, Softimage, 3D Max and also some open-source variants like Blender.
To give a brief overview, 3D computer animation involves a series of important steps - modelling, rigging, animation, texturing, lighting and rendering.
Currently it is the most popular technique for creating animation in India, also because of a common misconception that one only needs a computer and software to create animation. It is important to understand that besides these two, one needs to have a solid understanding of the principles of animation and basic art skills at the least to be able to successfully create any kind of animation.
