Brief | Script | Storyboard

A simple break down of our workflow

All our work can be carried out through email and telephone conversation so if time is precious, and your workload is high, just send us the required information and we can produce your high quality animation usually within 20 working days of confirmation. To start the process we would require a brief which entails a detailed breakdown of what you are looking to achieve. From this we will work together to create a script or storyboard. If you have cad data for your product we will require this to. We have connections to some of the largest texture and modelling developers on the market so even if you feel you have a very bespoke design please don’t hesitate to just drop us an email, we would relish the opportunity to go through some ideas with you and your team.

Pre-Vis

A simple break down of our workflow

Using the script or storyboard provided, we proceed to the modelling phase and first phase of animation. Our artists create the 3d model and draft out the basic animation. We then produce an pre-vis for the client to critique and discuss the model and camera angle. Using the pre-vis the modelling and animation phases will then be validated and confirmed before any the materiality process. Our model library is a consistent growing part of Pim Studios and we are able to match and create any given item you require to the highest standard.

Texturing | Materials | Lighting

A simple break down of our workflow

There are various ways we can light an animation, most animations are lit in a basic way to save on render time. However it is possible for us to produce advanced lighting such as HDRI (High Dynamic Range Image). This advance lighting method allows us to create the natural real world lighting, we also use additional spot and area lights to craft the image and achieve the look and feel you require.

We use high quality 3D materials from our bespoke library created by our artists. Our materials are based of photography which we break down into the raw elements such as diffuse, reflection, specular. We apply procedurally programmed patterns to each map to ensure our images do not have seams or stretching so they portray realistic qualities.

Rendering

A simple break down of our workflow

To produce a Photo-real image or animation this will require rendering. We use high-end Xeon servers within the office to render all of our work. This process can take hours or days for a single animation depending on the level of details. Other variables such as photorealistic lighting, materials and resolution (picture size) can have a huge impact on the render times.

Compositing and Editing

A simple break down of our workflow

Once all elements are rendered the compositing can begin. You may have seen compositing before regarding other industries such as film. Well the same techniques apply to animation. During the compositing stage we balance tones and values of the image we can even add additional lighting, grades and effects. Our compositors have years of experience and we can take basic 3d to stunning quality animation using Pim Studios Methods.

All the animations created have to be edited together this process usually on-going throughout the workflow.

We store all of our client’s files on server within the office for maximum security. Once all the final animation is finished we can securely send you the animation in the format you require typically we are asked for mov, mp4 and avi. We use services such as we transfer and dropbox to send files. If you require more animations or a high resolution still image from a previous project we can revisit them any time.
