3D Animatics, or Cinematics, are highly finished forms of computer-generated animation created digitally using 3D actors and environments that are endlessly customizable. 3D Animatics come to life through our motion capture technology that translates performances from mo-cap actors to be fully animated by our 3D animation team overnight. 3D Animatics enable fluid animation, complex camera work, and an exceptionally fast turn-around time.
What is a 2D Animatic?
2D Animatics are traditional, hand-drawn illustrations, created by an artist from our roster, that are translated into layered images animated by our 2D animation team. These are great for conveying visually unique or stylistic ideas in a test spot.
