It takes an expert eye and lots of practice to become good at color correction. 17 shows a before-and-after example of color correction. F i gure 2 . 1 7 ​A shot before (left) and after (right) color correction Final Output The final output of 3D animation can come in many different forms: film, video, Internet, rapid prototyping, 3D stereoscopic film and print media. Each of these output types have different workflows and technical limitations that are beyond the scope of this book. But the most common output type is digital video that can be played on the computer or Internet.

Texture artists can now paint directly on the 3D object in real time in software packages such as Autodesk’s Mudbox, Maxon’s BodyPaint 3D, or Pixologic’s ZBrush. 14 shows a model before texturing in the default gray color, and the same model after textures are painted. F i gure 2 . 1 4 ​Final model before textures have been applied (left) and the same model after the textures have been applied (right) 39 Chapter 2 • Getting to Know the Production Pipeline Rigging/Setup Rigging is the component of the production pipeline during which a control rig is put into a geometric object so the animators can move that object.

The largest technical limitation to this type is color correction because not everyone’s computer and monitor is calibrated and will look different. ” Using Production Tools In a 3D animation production pipeline, a domino effect can easily happen if one of the stages or components is not completed fully or correctly and the project moves forward in the pipeline. This mistake will cause a huge blockage in the pipeline, and fixing that blockage can mean having to backtrack a few steps in the production.
