In 3d computer animation, 3d modelling is the process of creating a mathematical representation of an object from three dimensional computer images using special software. The object is then known as a virtual model. An individual who works with digital 3d models can be called a digital modeler or a digital artist. This type of work is more popular in the video game and film industries than it is in the traditional computer graphics industry. For the sake of this article, we will use the term ‘3d’ to describe 3d modelling. Other forms of computer animation may use a different term, such as digital painting, digital compositing or digital sound design.
A computer generated image is created by using the computer to create a picture that is not available in real life. It is often very realistic. The main source for 3d computer animation is the video game and film industry, where the character or the landscape is made up of several different objects. For example, a soldier may have several guns on him that are animated to move around and shoot each other. The animation could also be animated to show what happens after the bullets hit the soldiers.
Virtual modelling software can also be used to create virtual landscapes. It is very similar to 3d modelling but instead of objects being created by a computer, an image is created. The software allows a user to see exactly how the final image will look. It can also be used to create 3d environments for games and movies. It is widely used in the game industry to create the background and the environment for all sorts of games.
