Product Design Animation

Showcase every detail of a product you’ve imagined with a 3D product video. If all you have are sketches or physical prototypes, Zco can act as your product design company and build 3D digital models. Already have it designed in CAD software? We can put it into a 3D environment, animate its moving parts, light it dramatically, and show it in action.

Product demo videos bring ideas into reality. They are ideal for wooing potential investors, advertising on television, and closing the deal on a shopping page. When the public sees your product in action, they won’t be able to resist it. Give the people what they want!


Characters & Cartoon Animation

3D Trailer Video Example

Our character design artists put the spark of life into everyone they create. They’re not simply drawing an object, but imbuing a person with a soul. We won’t lie – they often get a little attached. We know you’re already a little bit in love with the characters you’ve imagined, so we bring them to life just how you want.

When we tackle cartoon design, making all the characters and settings fit together is essential. When we build a world and a story, it has to be convincing, no matter the drawing style or absurdity of the plot. With out 3D animation services, every project is a star. It might be a 15-second commercial, but the right shading, texture, and composition can make it feature-worthy.

There are many uses for 3D animation, from a basic caption to an entertaining cartoon. Something as simple as a logo acquires extra punch when rendered in 3D. A product demo, as part of a presentation, trade show booth, or infomercial, can quickly illustrate the utility of the product.

Any 3D asset produced by Zco can be provided in multiple formats: raw models and textures, rendered images and videos, etc. Zco can also work from scratch or with existing assets from many applications:

  • Avid Media Composer
  • Mental Ray
  • V-Ray
  • Adobe Photoshop

  • RenderMan
  • Adobe After Effects
  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Final Cut Pro
  • Shake

Modeling, Texturing & Rigging

During 3D modeling, engineers give physical dimensions to objects and characters, ensuring consistency in the appearance and behavior of one model with others. Texturing supplies the visible skin of each creation, transforming it from a monochrome figure into an object or character with colors and shading.

Articulating models require a digital skeleton; how one part of a model moves in relation to other parts is just as important as the whole model's interactions with other models. This is called rigging, and provides the basis for realistic motion in the final product.


Visual Effects & Compositing

Compositing is the process of placing 3D models together within a 3D environment, still image, or video. Lighting and other effects influence how “real” the scene looks, how convincing character interactions appear, and the overall appeal of any video or game.

By using 3D animation markers, the animated 3D characters can have perfect movements. After the customer has approved the creation, the 3D animation company can export the project to a variety of formats to fit the client’s needs.


Product Demos & Commercials

Committing to buying a physical product can be a hurdle for many consumers. Without physically handling and experimenting with it, many shoppers might opt out of a purchase.

A 3D product demo offers more information, as well as emotional attachment, than static text or images. A video can show the product in use, virtually disassemble it to show how it works, and zoom in on tiny details. An interactive model even lets consumers “play” with it before buying.


Data Visualization

From simple graphs to complex data plots, data visualization can make information easier to analyze, absorb, and understand. Although math is often involved, creative design is also essential. Using the right colors, illustrations, and organizational schema can turn dry charts into captivating, beautiful educational tools.

Our 3D animation service turns large sets of data into beautiful, easy to understand images. Data visualization can be used to impart knowledge to workers and investors, learn how different aspects of an organization are tied together, and convince stakeholders of important relationships.
