January 18th, 2011

The use of 3D animation allows animators to bring their projects to life. By utilizing a procedure known as rigging, animators can create skeletal structure that is digital in nature that enables the control or manipulation of a mesh. This gives birth to animation that appears to be true to our visionary expectations. This process is widely utilized today in Hollywood for motion picture visual effects. The process allows you to see more than a flat animated appearance. The viewer will see all the dimensions and the depth will be comparable to what is seen in real time.

Belka And Strelka
Belka and Strelka is a 3D animated production developed by the Centre of National Film in Russia. This film was produced just last year in 2010. Back in 1960, a half century ago, the Russians sent two dogs on the journey of their life. They got a free ride into space in a project designed to ensure that human cosmonauts would be able to survive with the life support systems available. The dogs survived the journey and this 3D animated film is a tribute to their story.
