3D animation or graphics make use of a 3 dimensional depiction of content  that is in geometric form for the reason of rendering images that are in two  dimensional forms. The usage of 3d animation may be immense. It may be used in  computer graphic applications, making 3d animation games and even cartoon films  for the kids. 3d animation may also be used in corporate reports and in websites
and consequently because of their three dimensional nature make a better impact
and sound understanding. 

Similarity and difference between 3d animation and 2d animation

 Although there is an entire dimension addition in 3d animation when compared  to 2d, yet the basic algorithm on which 3d animation rely upon is the same in  both the case. This simailarity is apparent in the wire frame format mainly.

The difference between the 2d and 3d animation is not enough. They both use  each other to get the desired effects. For example 2d animation uses 3d effects  like lighting and at the same time, the 3d animation uses rendering techniques  that are taught in 2d. although there are differences like a 3d animation is  technically not a graphic till the time it is rendered in such a way that  visually it attains the stature of 3d. Thus, in order to be trained in 3d  animation, one needs to be skilled in 2d graphics as well.

 3d animation training

 Bringing characters to life is not as easy as it appears. It needs a lot of  practice and hard work. Although with a proper training in visual effects and an  in-depth knowledge of 2d graphics and 3d animation, one can easily create, out  of the world website, design products, make games that truly belong to the next  generation and much more. 

The answer such high goals and aspirations is a thorough and strong knowledge  of Graphics and the various packages that may help you to render a sketch into  life. Some of the packages that may make you a skilled in 3d animation are  flash, macromedia etc. But before you know such 3d animation packages, it’s  always advised to have an idea and perfection in packages like Photoshop that
forms the basis of any graphic activity.

 The 3d animation is taught in various schools and institutes focused in  animation and communication design. Different institutes have different  curriculum to offer its students in order to train them into skilled animators.  Usually, computer animation courses include 2d and 3d animation, digital arts,
digital animation course, editing and visual effect course etc.

 The best part about 3d animation is that even professionals can excel the art  by doing some online courses in the same field that enriches their art further  and make them further skilled and expertise animators.

The Basic 3d animation knowledge
