You will start by getting to know the studio, some of the projects of AMO 3D Visual and its influences and references, both from the world of 3D and other areas such as photography and cinema.

You will analyze other real and 3D videos to determine the movements and types of camera used. Then you will learn to find interesting angles and cameras, and to animate their journey.

You will learn to animate elements of your scene, such as curtains or lighting.

You will prepare a small storyboard with captures and / or renders of reference. This is the process that Antonio and Jesús follow to obtain the approval of their clients before carrying out a project.

At the time of production, you will learn to optimize your project before rendering it. You will learn some useful scripts for cleaning the scene and the optimal V-Ray settings to render your animation.

Finally, you will take your project to After Effects for postproduction, composing all the frames and passes to a single plane, giving it a more professional and attractive look, before exporting it to the desired video format.

What is this course's project?

You will create a photorealistic architectural 3D animation of a previously created interior.
