3D Modelling and animation

This module involved using 3D Studio Max to create a 30 second animated trailer for a James Bond film of choice. I chose Casino Royale as I originally intended to base the trailer around the poker scene as this makes up most of the movie. I decided that this may not be a good choice as it would require lots of character animation that would not be good for my first time using the software. I also thought that it may be better to choose action packed scenes such as car chases and explosions as this is what is expected from a Bond movie so would be more likely included in a trailer.


I needed to choose some scenes from the movie that would be animated in 3D Studio Max. I chose the scene where Bond scales the crane chasing after the terrorist near the beginning of the film, the airport scene where Bond hangs on top of the jet fuel truck, and a scene in the casino.

I created 3 models, a crane, a jet fuel truck and a card table along with playing cards and poker chips to be used in these scenes. The first 6 weeks were spent creating these 3 models and learning 3DS Max. The 3 models had to be handed in to be accessed half way through the module.




I then had to create the rest of the models needed for the animation. I created the building structure, pipes and other objects in the crane scene, the bus, runway and flood lights for the airport scene and the room and chairs for the casino scene along with the human characters used in all of the three scenes.




I then started work on the final animation as well as learning how to animate using 3DS Max.

Mental Ray was used to render the animation. I used a daylight system and a mental ray sky for the crane scene, for the other scene I used normal lights.

The final outcome was OK but I think it could have used more animation as the characters are quite static but I didn’t have enough time to add this. Other parts of the animation could have been improved but I think that for a first attempt it turned out quite well.

A blog that I created at the time to display the progress of the project can be found here: http://abonnington-3d.blogspot.com/

  45. 3D Animation: Just What the Doctor Ordered

    The global animation market was valued at $254 billion by 2017. It has, however, become apparent that the rise was but the beginning. This is generally because of the fact that animation has made its presence felt in the field of marketing.

    If 3D Animation Is So Bad, Why Don't Statistics Show It?

    When many people think 3D animation, they think entertainment. This is largely due to its capability to arouse emotion and captivate. In the recent past, however, 3D animation is increasingly being utilized to showcase products.

    So how effective is 3D product animation?

    Well, to be honest, it WORTH A LOT MORE THAN THAT!

    Just take a look at brand names such as Gillette and Apple. Take a look at the Gillette ads and you will realize that a simple animation developed a lowly shave into an adventure. This has made the brand extremely popular among consumers. Gillette sets itself apart from its rivals by taking this new method to marketing. At the end of the day, a quality animation reflects well on your brand. That is just what a good 3D product animation will do for your brand; it will make you stand shoulders above the competition.

    When 3d animation is employed as a marketing strategy, three main advantages are realized:

    1.Profit Minded Prototyping: Releasing a prototype to the market is a really pricey affair. To be fair, they do get the job done but, what if there was a more affordable alternative? Well, now there is. 3D product animation models your product in an online world and exposes it to the market. That is to say, you have the necessary feedback from the market without suffering the cost of a prototype.

    2. First Impressions Come Once: Let's face it, many products are boring. Just imagine a Gillette ad without the animation. Would it not place you to sleep in the very first five seconds?

    With 3D product animation, however, a boring product is changed into an adventure of cinematic proportions. Every product is amazing in a virtual world- especially after a few special effects. Use animation to strike a chord with the market of interest.

    The iPhone X is a great example. Apple invested seriously on 3D product animation to get the phone noticed. The major brands of the world- think Huawei, Microsoft, and Samsung- all use 3D product animations. Now you know why they take over their respective markets.

    3.Money Matters: 3D product animation is not an expense, it is a save. Apart from advertising, the 3D model can also be utilized to determine glitches in an unfinished product. Designers are afforded the chance to improve the brand before the prototypes come out.

    Animation also makes it possible to promote the item cost-effectively. Just take a look at how well-known Virtual Reality (V.R) and 3D modelling are- no one can get enough of 3D.

    In a nutshell, animation technologies will bring good tidings to your product. The animation will give your product an aura of suspense and class that the market simply finds irresistible. The animation procedure also makes the brand feel contemporary and worthy of a place in the modern market. Bad first impression has been the doom of countless products.

    Don't be part of the failures. Abandon generic marketing methods. Turn your ad into a 3D tale presenting your product as the elegant and irresistible hero. You do wish to be the next Apple and Huawei, don't you?
