How were the Animations made? - finbac - 04-08-2010 05:22 AM
Hello I just like to say the animated guide to building pc is very impressive. It shows a lot of skill and talent. I would love to be able to create something similar through animation. I have a number of questions: I am curious what software was used for the animations? Flash, open gl, direct x? was there programming involved like c++? How many hours did it take? Additionally may I invite the creator to make video tutorials on how one would create such animations, I am sure lots of people would be interested. It is a very clean and visual way to demonstrate something.

I didn't create the anims (Aram did - who's a bit of a filmFX whizz), but I'm guessing he used the following:
Autodesk Maya: For the modelling and animation.
Mental Ray or Maya renderer: To render the final images
Adobe Premier: To edit the final animations (There are alternatives such as Final Cut, Sony vegas etc, but as I recall Aram always had a penchant for premier).
It wouldn't surprise me if he used Shake or Nuke to add a little bit of post-production polish (since he's a bit of an expert in that particular field).
If any programming was involved (which i doubt) it would have been Maya's internal scripting language (mel). Probably didn't require it though.....
