Creating the Film

Now that you've carefully planned ahead, in doing the storyboard to animatic, it's time to start making the film. Most often once the animatic is done, it is used to complete the final film.

Finalizing the Film

With 2D Animation, often Animators will spend a considerable amount of time animating the key points in the story first to showcase the plot. Then as they continue to work from the animatic, minor scenes that support the key points are completed. If there is voice over work, it will be done at this stage.

In Traditional Animation this work is all done by hand on the animation desk.

Thanks to technology, Digital 2D Animation allows us to created everything from scratch on the computer, if we choose too. I really love Traditional Animation! It can offer so much more convenience than 3D Animation, because of its hands-on nature, you can immediately correct mistakes. In 3D Animation you really have to know exactly what you're doing when mistakes happen and need to be corrected in order to save time. For Digital 2D Animation you can use Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash, After Effects, Toon Boom Studio, Anime Studio Pro, and other programs. There are certain software Artists get comfortable working with so choose whatever you like, or what will help you get a job.

In 3D Animation, a similar approach is used. The characters can be animated separate from the 3D environments, imported, or referenced into the scenes, or animated there with the environments. 3D Animation can be more involved than 2D Animation, depending upon what aesthetics the creator is going for. During this stage; rigging may need to be developed more, textures will need to be finalized, and effects will have to be done. Voice over will be completed at this stage using lip-sync animation. Motion Capture work may be done to help obtain realistic, fluid animation. Often complex effects, such as explosions, may have to be rendered out separately and composited together for a scene later. Software such as Nuke, Houdini, Fusion, etc may be used for compositing and visual effects. If the creator is going for a photo-real look, then it can be very time consuming to achieve this in 3D. Other visual effects techniques, stereoscopic 3D and use of 3D animated camera moves to still characters in environments, could require a lot of effort. Once everything is finally finished it is rendered out from the 3D software. There are popular render applications such as Renderman, Mental Ray, and V-Ray that can make your work look stunning!

For 3D Animation you can use Maya, 3D Studio Max, Lightwave, Cinema 4D, and there are many supporting applications along with plug-ins that can pretty much help you make a 3D film that looks like a live-action film! Heck, you could even make a live-action film instead.

Editing

Once all the scenes are finally done, it's time to add in the background music, and bring all those scenes together into the final film. Depending upon the software you use there are various approaches at this stage. Most often you have to take a scene and somehow combine the single scene with multiple scenes to complete the film. Render it out and you have a completed film!

After Effects can be used for Editing, as well as Premiere Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, etc. In many studios they often may use software that is specifically built for Editing such as Avid or Final Cut Pro.

As I have been doing various freelance jobs around the city, I have met a few Artists who were so ambitious that they created their own films, and they look wonderful! Now I'm inspired to do my own film someday. I just have to be certain to plan carefully for it.
