Creating a captivating piece that will excite your client and captivate the audience requires some forethought. In this class we will go through an animation process, highlighting techniques used on a recent project that Tiltpixel was tasked with to sell an idea for a private school in South America. Using 3ds Max software we will go through setting up complex scenes, touching on lighting, rendering, and post producing.
