Create Animation Production Process

The action of making or manufacturing from the elements or raw stuff or the process of being so manufactured. Animated video is helpful for sharing concepts and ideas in a world with short attention spans and a craving for flashy content and image. In this blog, today we talk about the animation production process and how we put all the parts together to make an animated video.

If you are adding elements such as motion graphics, animation or sound effect in this video, then the material will be produced in the animation production process stage.

7 Step to Create Animation Production Process


1. Brief and Do Some Research

Every marketing video songs share pricetarts with a conversation about an idea. At the Arena Sayajigunj Institute, our faculty of researchers discuss with you to learn as much about your product, service, or issue as possible.

The process of research also estimates the market to figure out the best method for putting out the right and powerful message in the best way for your brand.

3. Storyboard

Once your script and concept art has been sketched up, a storyboard will be drawn up to detail the visual elements of the video scene-to-scene. It will allow you to see how the overall animation is structured, down to the scene design and progression of the story.

4. Illustrations

Once you have approved a storyboard that meets your brief, your initial concept art sketches will be developed into detailed illustrations. Depending on the video, that may include text, backgrounds, characters, icons and more. This process consists of the design of all characters and the environments in the animated video.


5. Animation

Once your script and storyboard are verified, next to move on to putting the words into the action. The animation and motion graphics stages involve creating the necessary images to go to a message. These stages require attention to detail, and each step ensures that the visuals created in the production stage reflect the initial concept.

6. Sound Effect

To complete your animation process, it’s time to add sound effects and a professional music track. The most engaging male or female voices with the best accent are selected to set the right pace using production software to add audio to animation video. The perfect sound over reinforces the message of the video and can make a world of a difference.


7. Final Stage

This is the final stage of the animation production process that gives you the final look of the video. In the Post-production stage involves the complete process of creating and editing the graphics, background music and sound mixing.

Basic Concept of Stop Motion Animation

Basic Concept of Stop Motion Animation

Stop Motion


Stop motion technique has been used for years to transform objects into locomotive beings. Mostly stop motion is used in the film industry and at one time, it was long thought to move the objects by magic. Stop-motion has been used in several other motion picture films like King Kong (1933), Clash of the Titans (1981), Star Wars Trilogy, and many of Tim Burton’s films like The Nightmare before Christmas (1993) and The Corpse Bride (2005), and much more.
There are few basic concepts that every aspiring young filmmaker would want to keep in mind.

Stop motion isn’t time lapse. On one side, stop motion is an animation technique that physically manipulates an object, so it looks to move on its own by moving the object between the individually photographed frames. This method helps to creates the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a constant sequence. On the other side, time lapse is utilized by taking still photographs of a live environment at constant intervals so that the frequency at which film frames are captured is lower than used to view the sequence. So, when played at constant speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.

3 Basic Concept of Stop Motion Animation


Stop Motion

1. Time

Taking your time to completely embody the movement of whatever object it is you want to work with is critical. As you will need to create every move look as real as possible to the viewer. The other thing to keep in mind is that movements that are closer will slow down the action, while movements that are notably apart will speed it up.

2. Motion Arcs

Not every movement happen in the straight line, because if they did, we will all appear to be floating, it is essential to implement the curved path of the movement known as an arc. Using arcs in animation will create the realistic movement that is natural to the eyes.

3. Overlapping Action

Always stagger movement by some frames to create a real and natural animation. This technique becomes incredibly important when dealing with the complex scenes including the multiple objects moving separately or elaborate movement of one character.

Other great things to mention is that stop motion can be utilized in both 2D and 3D animations. In 2D animation, you draw out the characters you want to work within your film by either drawing them on paper, capturing a photo and repeating these steps or using a cut out of objects you want to work with and then giving them a free range of motion in the film. The other avenue for stop motion is in 3D animation using clay or play-doh objects, action figures and much more.

The brass tacks of it are that stop motion is pretty neat, and it is a technique for everyone that is an aspiring filmmaker or videographer interested in the breathing life into inanimate objects.

3D Text in Adobe After Effects

3D Text in Adobe After Effects

3D Text in Adobe After EffectsCreate 3D Text in Adobe After Effects Software

Learn to create and animate 3D text in Adobe After Effects software. In this blog, you will learn how to make the great looking 3D text in Adobe After Effects software.

Steps to Create 3D Text in Adobe After Effects Software

Click on Below Video: After Effects Tutorial (CC2017) – Create 3D Text

Step1: Create a Text Layer

In new composition, use the Type Tool to create the text. In this example, we use the word 3D, but you can use anything you’d like. Next, hop over to the character panel and adjust the typeface to your liking. Sans-serif fonts tend to look the best in 3D.

Step 2: Change your Render Settings to 3D Renderer

Use the Cinema 4D rendering to create the 3D text. If you are using Adobe After Effects CC, you have Cinema 4D Lite built in.

Click on Composition > Composition Settings and click on 3D Renderer. From the drop-down menu, select Cinema 4D.

Then open the options and set the quality down to 1. It will let you work faster in After effect, and then we can increase it before we render out the final 3D text.

Then, click on OK.

Step 3: Create the 3D Text Layer

In Composition settings, select the 3D Layer icon within the Text layer.

Your text is now controllable in 3D space, but the text itself is still flat.

Step 4: Add Depth to Text

To get that traditional 3D look, you will need to add depth to the text. To do so, open up text composition layer settings, open up Geometry Options, and set the Extrusion Depth.

Step 5: Light the 3D Text

It’s all about making the 3D look good, and lighting and texturing is the key to making it work.

Go to Layer > New > Light In a Light menu, open the Light Type drop-down and select Spot.

For now, let’s use regular white light.

Set the color to white, increase the Intensity to 100%, set Shadow Darkness to 100%, and select the Cast Shadows. Click OK.

Step 6: Add a Camera

Go to Layer > New > Camera.

Select a Two-Node Camera, and for this project, we will set the Focal Length to 30mm.

Click OK.

Use the C button on the keyboard to cycle through the camera options. You can move, shift, and zoom the camera.

We are going to rotate the camera and find a good look for 3D Text.

Step 7: Add Bevels to 3D Text

Select the 3D Text layer and click on the A key twice. Now you will see all the 3D options in layer menu.

Chance the Bevel Style to Convex, next exaggerate the look by adding more Bevel Depth. It allows the light to reflect off of text, rather than lighting a flat plane.

Step 8: Duplicate the Light

Duplicate the spotlight with Ctrl+D on PC. Then click on the P key to open the Position settings. Set the light’s position to catch the extruded edge of text.

Step 9: Add Shadows

In 3D text layer, under Material Options, turn Cast Shadows On.

Step 10: Adjust the Light Color

Select the first spotlight and click on A twice on the keyboard to open up the settings. Open the color panel and select the color of your choice. A little bit of color goes in a long way in 3D, so even a lighter shade will add some serious style.

Do the same thing for the second spotlight, but this time selecting another complementary color.

Step 11: Add Ambient Light

Next, Add some ambient light to 3D text.

Go to Layer > New > Light

Set the Light Type to Ambient and Pick a Color.

Click OK.

Go to Ambient light layer and click A twice, drop the Intensity way down.

Step 12: Add a Rim light

Now we want to add a rim light to text. You can instantly do this by duplicating the front spotlight.

Click on P on the duplicated spotlight and set to position down and to the side of the text.

Step 13: Adjust the Material Specular Options

In 3D text layer, navigate to the Material Options drop-down. Now play with Specular Intensity and Specular Shininess.

Lightly adjusting these two settings will give you nice hot spots and reflections.

Step 14: Create a Background

First, create a background

Go to Layer > New > Solid and choose a color. And drag this solid to the bottom layer in the hierarchy.

Step 15: Color Adjustment

To have final control over the changes, create a new Adjustment layer.

Go to Layer > New > Adjustment Layer and Drag Adjustment layer to the top of the hierarchy.

Go to Window > Effects and Presets and in the Effects and Presets panel, search for Curves.

Drag the Color Correction Curves effect into the Adjustment Layer.

In the Curves menu, Make a traditional S-curve for some contrast. You can head into Blues and adjust them ever so lightly.

Step 16: Animate the 3D Text

If you want to bring this 3D text to live, then add simple movement in it. This is easy using the camera that we have already made.

Go to Camera layer and click P for the position. Move the playhead to last second you want to animate. If you need a 2-second animation, move to 2, if you need 5, go to 5, etc. At that end, time add a position keyframe.

Move on the playhead back to 0 seconds, and now well add the first move. Click C on the keyboard till you get the rotate tool. Move the text around till you find a position you are happy with as the start point.
