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 animator 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.
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.
Zco’s animators are able to use both left and right sides of the brain to put large data sets into proper context, and also make them visually appealing. 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.
