Should I learn 2D or 3D animation? 2D animation is still a staple of television,
regardless of how much they try to hype 3D TV. Because no one wants to wear those ugly goggles
while trying to watch the game. 3D animation is mostly used in some movies,
a lot of games and some educational settings. I can imagine most guys would love 3D sex
ed. While it would be terrifying to see Michael
Moore in 3D. Which one do you think has a better future? 2D is overwhelmingly used in ads either on
TV or the PC. But until they have a smart phone with 3D holographics, there is a huge
demand for 2D animation. Games make as much money or more than movies.
There are 3D animations in games like Call of Duty, and that grossed about a billion
dollars because of it. If you want to develop games, you need to
learn 3D animation. Unless you’re going to be making educational flash games for the
iPad. I’ve seen 3D art. And it is usually rendered on a flat computer
screen. You should learn 2D animation whether you want to make cartoons, advertisements
or such. There are business applications for 3D animation. True. Teaching people how to assemble a product
or demonstrating how a new machine will operate is done in 3D. Where does Google glass fall? I can imagine
a big future with immersive reality video. Are you talking about gamification of the
jogger’s path, as they jump over imaginary hurdles in the game they see in Google glass?
Or spam ads that would pop up as the person is reading food labels? I heard we’d have instructions on how to
assemble Ikea furniture, right as we open the box, or doctors could get advice from
someone looking through their eyes. I don’t want the doctor getting distracted
by pop-ups for life insurance or ambulance chasing attorneys while he’s trying to do
a coronary bypass. And since Google glass is still a long way from anything other than
a walking webcam, don’t worry about animating anything for it.
