The most representative and gathering places of immigrants are the office buildings in the most popular financial business center in Beijing. People working there are those mainstays of the labor who are usually called the Beijing floaters coming from other places in China. Though seemed doing some decent jobs and working really hard, they could only get rather lower salary. In China nowadays, there is a certain working mode called 996, which means working from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day for a total of 12 hours, working six days a week. Such high-intensity work model has gradually become sometimes a rigid rule of the major companies in Beijing. Employees can only choose to obey, otherwise they have to choose leaving. Moreover, companies with such rules would give basically no pay for their employees’ overtime working. Therefore, white-collar employees in Beijing are under great pressure with even not enough salaries to pay their accommodation. Their busy figure appears everywhere in the giant buildings as I depicted in the early part of the film, jailed in the dense workplaces, shuttling in the office hall, worrying about whether the crowded elevators is coming or not. In order to express those scenes of large office building in the beginning of the shortfilm, the author mainly creates an extremely depressive and cold atmosphere through the composition of the frame, the position relationship between objects, the using of the light and color, which lays an emotional tone for the whole film.
Moments can be made using any software program(s)—at first. Aim high. The goal is to capture the style and test out possible technical pipelines. Don’t be concerned at first if the technical aspect is too slow or not developed enough: the “exactly how we do it” comes later. It might even be decided that the effect can’t be done. However, you might find that what you thought would be an improbable way of creating the image is doable with a few tweaks and you still get the great image at the end! It is a test; failure is okay. From that failure you may uncover another way to approach the problem. We make a safe place to fail by only using one frame or one scene. By testing the technical pipelines in a safe environment of one shot or one frame, it allows the filmmakers to try things that they normally would have avoided. They might have not included a certain aspect of a story or a character design because they thought, “No, we can’t do that, because ….” It becomes especially necessary to have this process in a 2D/3D pipeline when it might be that no processes or pipelines have been established. This puts the production team into a high-risk category. The process of creating moments helps flush out those technical issues early while keeping focused on the overall aes- thetic of the piece. Most important, do not stop a test with the roadblock of “We can’t do that, because ….” Just as in the rules of brainstorming, if you stop a test from happening, you also stop any branches of knowledge or problem solving that might have come from that test. Even if the experiment was going to be a failure, its branches might have led to a success.

Immediately after the thesis concept was approved, designs were created that had a realistic texture and cartoon-like body style for the sunflower. During the time that there was a hold in production due to the workload, new visual influences were discovered. These new influences inspired a change in the art direction of The Opportunity. One particular influence was the animation Meet Buck (https://vimeo.com/user2825043). The illustrative painterly style of this film had great appeal. The simplistic texture and shapes of the character became very influential and eventually guided The Opportunity towards this style. In this design, the goals were to get a painterly gesture like texture and use no bump or displacement maps. The light and dark areas would be painted into the texture. Typical 3D films such as the Toy Story series by Pixar or Disney’s Frozen, feather the colors and have them bleed into one another. The colors in The Opportunity were purposefully not blended. The stroke of the brush was intentionally visible to help add a layer of “texture” to the texture.
Whether your heart desires a machine, design object or comic figure there is no limit to what we can produce. We produce animation sequences that show for example a process flow or different effects, which we will then use in the post production. Due to our professional filmproduction background we have a vast amount of knowledge, allowing the complete production of 3Danimation projects to take place in-house. Green screen material and 3D Tracking // Matchmoving, the combination of 3Danimation and realfilm allows us to change different scenes completely to create new worls and to implement credible effects.
Abstract— The animated movie is a growing industry in Indonesia. Animated film serves as a medium not only entertain, but also educate because it contains a moral message and didactic. Currently, the making of animated films in addition to having an interesting story line, also has a specific purpose. There is an important message to be conveyed, such as presenting a legend or cultural heritage that became extinct from the public gaze. In fact, there are many people even younger generation, have minimal knowledge about the legend their own areas. Society tends to like to enjoy other entertainment than on listening to the legend that is considered old-fashioned. The number of alternative technologies utilized by the loss of consciousness to be a factor for preserving cultural heritage. Animated film may be one solution that is used to promote and preserve the story of the legend. Legend is no longer monotonous and archaic, since the film is packed with animations where appropriate real that seem different from other movie legends. This animated film applications utilize a blender to make a design, asset or 3D object and the animation and video editing using Adobe Premiere. The purpose of making this film is to produce animated film Legend of the People Galela to introduce and preserve the local legends Galela to Indonesian society and local communities. In this study, the authors undertake analytical studies related to the production of 3D animated film about Galela Folk legend that tells of 'origins presence of a lake in Galela. Analysis of this 3Danimationfilm making using SWOT analysis methods with the aim of predicting and analyzing some of the factors that must be considered influential in making the animated film so it can be maximized and in accordance with the ultimate goal being achieved. Hopefully, the animated film Legend Galela People can be useful and accepted by the public at large.

We could develop the software further to be a tool for real animation projects. Although there are many possible routes for technical refinement we feel that the human factors involved in audio-visual 3D interfaces are a more general and interesting topic. For such work Anima- Land is a good test-bench. In future we plan to evaluate the immersive direct manipulation interface in more detail. This calls for thorough examination on how users relate to the sys- tem and how the interaction works. On the technical front an interesting case would be the combination of physical modeling and direct manipulation.
This tool should be general and widely useful. Many researchers studying cell structure and physiology seek to construct and evaluate dynamic models that incorpo- rate random thermal motion as well as conformational changes induced through intermolecular interactions. Discovering, testing, and communicating hypotheses about these interactions requires the development of complex animated 3D molecular structures. Modeling, simulation, and rendering these hypothetical scenarios involves using a number of tools and databases (PDB, PyMol, Blender, NAMD, etc.) and then converting files to pass geometry and animations between tools. It also involves manual placement and orientation of 3D objects, which is currently done using 2D input devices and by-eye detection and avoidance of collisions. As a result, it often takes a team months to produce an acceptable model or animation.
Notice that we must do a dot product at each vertex for every frame. While current processors are fast enough to handle this math at interactive rates on scenes with reasonable complexity, hardware lighting could potentially be used to speed these computations. Since 3D graphics accelerators with hardware lighting compute L ⋅ n per vertex anyway, a hardware pathway between the lighting and texturing subsystems and an associated automatic texture-coordinate generation mode would be beneficial for cartoon shading. A variety of shading techniques, both photorealistic and nonphotorealistic, could also benefit from such hardware features [Heid99]. Our texture-mapped method is equivalent to per-pixel color thresholding. Without texture mapping we would need either hardware-supported per-pixel procedural shading or a thresholded variation of hardware Gouraud shading to achieve the same fast results.
Communicating Sequential Processes (CSP), is a notation for describing concurrent systems, which can be analyzed algebraically. To use the theory of CSP for designing embedded soft- ware, the gCSP (graphical CSP) tool was created. gCSP is capable of creating CSP models by drawing diagrams (gCSP diagrams) according to the CSP language. By using the CSP algebra, the FDR2 (Failure Divergence Refinement) tool can check a gCSP model on deadlocks or live- locks. gCSP is capable of generating C++ code of its diagrams. Combining this code with the CT (Communicating Threads) execution framework, an executable (CT program) can be created. The CT program can be executed on a PC or (real-time) hardware platform, for testing its exe- cution behavior. Because the CT execution framework only supports textual debug output as feedback on the execution of a CT program, it is hard to test and validate its execution behavior. The goal of this project is to improve this feedback, to give the user more insight about the execution behavior of a CT program. To achieve this, animation is chosen to be appropriate for this purpose. By animation of a CT program, the execution of the program will be graphically shown. Animation can be used to analyze or debug the execution behavior of a CT program. To make this possible, an animation framework was designed and implemented.
Animacy lies at the heart of many media artifacts imbued with an illusion of life. Puppets and avatars, examples of traditional and digital user manipulated characters, become lively under the control and enactment of performers. Animatronic robots utilize mechanical means to produce the appearance of gesturing and perceiving viewers. Cartoons, manifested through sequences of pictures, can walk like real human figures. Although these artifacts differ from each other in terms of material form, control mechanism, and technology, all of them are animated in a literal sense. The animation of these artifacts hinges upon lively motion as the primary phenomenon of illusion of life.
However, the AGVs currently undergoing development are subjected to the studies by which each of the AGVs strengthens functions to perform autonomous driving, avoids collision by using highly priced sensors such as radar sensors, reads obstacles and positions by mounting cameras to each of the AGVs, and avoids obstacles thereby. In this paper, the AGVs management system, which is monitored by 3Danimation, can be used with ease by any average people untrained professionally by identifying functions required for the operation of the AGVs, while simplifying the hardware functions for the chassis of the AGVs growing in price due to
To unimaginable extent, maps have such multiplicity of uses as anything that can be spatially conceived can be mapped and, thus, have nearly unrestricted potential utility. The introduction of computer graphics  in mapping has created a more robust platform for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) that has led to a different dimension from 2D orthogonal representation of geographic reality to 3D representation . The making of maps from Remotely Sensed Images such as multi-spectral images (e.g., GeoEye, NigeriaSat-2, IKONOS, SPOT), Laser, and other terrain measuring sources such as SONAR and SRTM as source of height information have all created the added advantage of rapidly producing maps in a way usually impossible . In facility mapping of geographic phenomena such as building infrastructure, the relatively accurate coordinates (x,y) are basic requirements in order to work with them in a GIS environment. The shift or outright embrace of 3D modeling or 3D geovisualization (geovisual analytics) of geographic phenomena helps to better appreciate the phenomena being represented because of the additional height information as against the 2D orthogonal topographic mapping.
No matter whether you are developing a story for film, television, commercials, or a short, the same rules apply. Keep your plot clear in your head and see the beginning, middle, and end clearly, and you will write a solid story. Entertainment reinforces believability and is more interesting than realism. Foregrounding desire, growth, and character arcs is how you make the story real. Remember back story, but don’t feel the need to put all of it into your writing. Back story will help you as you write about what is important, reinforcing who your characters are and what they want and need. Follow the directive of the story as you write. Keep your ideas clear. Stage the shots so that they reinforce the premise. Use storyboarding to narrow the focus of the story and tell it cinematically. Remember the importance of graphic awareness and staging in your whole frame. Lead the viewer to watch what you want them to see. Don’t move the camera around unnecessarily, and be sure to savor the moment long enough for the audience to have empathy with your characters. Gratuitous camera moves will pull your audience out of the story. In CG, animatics, pre-viz, and choreo will save you a lot of time in the animation stage by solving any cutting or continuity problems before they arise. As an animator, storytelling is the nitty-gritty of your everyday life. That said, many animators have been heard saying, “I’m an animator, not a writer. Why do I need to know about story?” Understanding the com- ponents of creating a good story will help you as an animator, plus heighten any scene. If you think about story while animating, it will give your performance a richness not found in the works of others who are just trying to fulfill the basic needs of a scene. You will be walking in the character’s shoes while you animate. You are telling the story through your character’s actions. In order for your scene to fit properly into the story, you must understand the character and his or her drive and needs. You also must empathize with the character and those needs, even if you are animating the villain. Justify those needs in your head, and you will get to the core of the situation at hand. The character is flesh and blood and needs to feel real to the audience. Understanding how to tell a good story will help your animation immensely. Ultimately, the story is defined by the character and what the character desires. Guess what? You are a “character” animator.
In our proposed system, Markerless motion capture is an active study in 3D virtualization. 3D human model is formed using open source software (Makehuman). In this paper gives a review on various existing techniques related to motion capture. In this system markerless motion capture method for 3Dhuman character animation which can be useful for any HCI application similar to gaming, film industry, motion analysis in sports and many more. In markerless motion capture the performer doesn't have to be dressed in a suit, but still markerless motion capture is a challenging task. Marker-less motion capture methods suppose that a subject is observed by a single or by multiple video cameras and that the acquired images are processed in order to estimate the subject’s pose at every observation time.
Zhu, Rong, and Zhaoying Zhou  described the method "A real-time articulated human motion tracking using tri- axis inertial/magnetic sensors package." Kalman-based fusion algorithm is used. This algorithm was applied to obtain dynamic orientation and further positions of segments of the subject body. The arm motion experiment was established using the developed system and algorithm. System sensor were build using tri-axis microelectomechanical accelerometers, rate gyros and magnetometers. Lee, Mun Wai, and Ramakant Nevatia  described the method "Human pose tracking in monocular sequence using multilevel structured models."In this system grid-based belief propagation algorithm, data-driven Markov chain Monte Carlo technique is used.In this system realistic scenes due to background clutter, variation in human appearance, and self occlusion. Solution to this system is addresses various issues including automatic initialization ,data association ,self and interocclusion. this system has Less position error due to full pose inference and Longer processing time for rendering hence it is not suitable for real time application. Peursum, Patrick, Svetha Venkatesh, and Geoff West  described the method "A study on smoothing for particle- filtered 3d human body tracking." Annealed Particle Filter, Particle Filter, factored-state hierarchical hidden Markov model techniques are used. In this system smoothed-inference techniques are implemented Occlusion and poor segmentation is handled by hierarchical hidden markov model and tracking results are not so accurate. This system smoothing does not improve body tracking accuracy and processing time is increased due to smoothing
The most important thing to bear in mind is that the more realistic you make your character, the more the audience will demand that your character moves in a realistic way. A real human being sat in front of you has hundreds of tiny, almost imperceptible movements occurring across their face and body, even when they are not doing anything. It’s virtually impossible for an ani- mator to replicate all of these movements convincingly without spending a huge amount of time and effort. This is why almost every photo-realistic human character I’ve seen in the movies always looks a bit creepy. Only a fraction of the muscles of the face are moving, the joints are not following graceful arcs and the eyes never seem to be looking in the right place. They end up looking like a shop dummy that’s come to life. In the end, rather than make a photo-realis- tic human model and animate it, wouldn’t it be better to film a real human being?
