With 3D animation becoming hugely popular in recent years, the uses of the technology are becoming ever more diverse. We’re all used to seeing 3D animations up on the big screen in feature films, but businesses and corporations are also finding ever more innovative ways of utilising 3D animation techniques in order to make their enterprise seem more attractive to punters.
One of the latest interesting examples of this has recently been unveiled by the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation. The local authority involved in town planning in the Canadian province has released a unique 3D video which outlines their vision of what the East Village of Caldary will look like in coming years.
This 3D rendering presents a highly realistic view of how the east side of downtown Calgary will be transformed by urban development into a new urban village. The animation has been produced to show how revitalization projects are slowly but surely changing the face of the city.
The 3D animation presents viewers with a fly-by overview of some of the notable landmarks of Calgary, including public art installations, the 4th Street underpass and RiverWalk features. Meanwhile, future attractions which are to be developed imminently are also featured in what is effectively an artistic impression of the future, with upcoming projects like the National Music Centre, new Central Library and the revitalization of St. Partick's Island and accompanying bridge all featured in the video.
The animation shows once again what an innovative and flexible medium 3D animation offers. It is in this spirit that Natural Front was created, with the intention of creating intuitive and innovative approach to 3D animation. The ‘Curve Controlled Modelling’ incorporated into the Natural Front software enables 3D character animators to negate some time consuming traditional 3D modelling techniques, while making the process as fluid and painless as possible for professional animators.
Natural Front’s innovative package ensures that traditional 3D modelling techniques such as 3D rigging, morphing targets and blending shapes can be discarded, as Natural Front makes 3D modelling much easier, quicker and more affordable. With a particular focus on 3D facial animations, Natural Front offers great practical and economic benefits in this notoriously trickiest and most laborious area of 3D animation.
Natural Front enables an animator to produce the highest quality work, at the lowest possible price point, and with the minimum amount of effort. And it constantly grows with the animator, as we treat Natural Front as a ‘beta’ project, and are constantly looking for feedback from users to help grow and mould the future of the software.
The Calgary Municipal Land Corporation recognized the power of 3D animation, so why not check out Natural Front today and become acquainted with it yourself.
