3d - Character Animation Chapter 1

3d animated movies are the hot new thing the past couple of years, starting with Pixar's Toy Story.

At about the time Toy Story, came out, I was just starting to play with 3d software. I think 3d Studio (the precursor to 3dsMax) was the first software I started with.

The first time I started up 3dStudio, I wasn't impresed at all, as all I saw was a "wireframe" grey display, nothing at all similar to the vibrant photorealistic scenery that was in Toy Story !

It was awhile before I found out what "rendering" meant :)
