It would take much more time to create the scenes and animations in traditional workflows. However, filmmaking with real-time animation, a library of content and character creation provides visual artists with flexibility while saving lots of time.  Furthermore, realtime animation allows creators to collaborate instantaneously with writers, directors and others involved in the creative process.

The Secrets to Professional 3D Visuals with iClone by Benny Dee

In our age of software animation, people tend to get excited about tools, but forget to pay attention to the key elements and their work ends up not looking professional. The main purpose of sharing my knowledge today is to help change the mindset of how people animate.

And what are these key elements? For me, they are camera movement, lighting, effects, and look-up tables (LUTs). I will explain each of these elements in due course, but for now, suffice it to say that even first-time animators need to address all these elements if they want to put their work on the right path to professional quality.
