Global 3D Animation Market: Snapshot

The evolution and introduction of three-dimensional (3D) animation has given the world of animation a new perspective. The process of creating 3D moving images in a digital space through objects or models has given these illusions depth. One of the most fundamental differences between 2D animation and 3D animation is the technique used for creating the images and the way they look. The global 3D animation market is filled with a wide range of software that are used for creating 3D animation results. 

While creating 2D animation, techniques such as such as onion skimming, anime, rotoscopy, morphing, and twining are used. On the other hand, 3D animation uses techniques such as arena building, sketching, abating, appearance modeling, texturing, camera setup, rendering, and alteration and bond. A great deal of 3D animation is used for making TV shows, games, and other entertainment solutions. The global 3D animation market is also benefiting from its adoption in education and healthcare sector. 

Though creation of 3D animation requires tremendous effort, art, and calculation, the global market offers several tool to match the needs of the animator. Some of the popularly used tools in the overall market are Maxon, Side FX, and NewTek. Companies are focused on developing software that are allow customization of the workflow and comes with built-in features for making lifelike characters. Players are also focusing on developing software that are easier and intuitive to learn, especially for artists who aren’t quite familiar with sophisticated tools. Development of various sectors is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the 3D animation industry along with creating several jobs for animators.
