The exact same geometric object can easily be made to look like gold or stone. ART AND ENGINEERING 3D animation sits at the crossroads of art and engineering. It demands that the animator have strong analytic skills. Objects must be carefully built, oriented, and animated in 3-space with respect to the scene and to other objects in a scene. Some aspects of animation are best done with scripting code, and a strong intuitive sense of physics is needed in order to provide natural looking movement, deformation and collisions of objects, and particle emission and collision.

The name Hypershade, by the way, comes from “shader,” which is another name for a material. In fact, shader is the more generic, commonly used term. A material can be complex. A “texture” is a simpler thing; a texture can be part of a material. 4 we see an object, a sphere, along with its attributes. One of them is the red material that has been assigned to it. It’s a Blinn material, which, in its initial form, is very shiny. Later, you might be surprised at just how many attributes an object can have.

This character serves as a vehicle for learning how to insert solid objects under the skin of a character so that its limbs will bend naturally. A few other techniques for animating skeletons are examined, including the use of an aim constraint so that a character will follow a moving object, pinning and unpinning the feet of a character, and using Maya’s sticky construct to limit the movement of a limb. Then we turn to the animation of rigid objects by animating a bowling ball and a few pins. The Moai from Chapter 4 is resurrected and the process of making it turn transparent is animated.
