The story behind Poilus is that the character who has the center of attention is a young rabbit solider as it is in the world war, and he’s playing a harmonica throughout the dire times of war and comes across his first enemy who is a monster, it turns out left for him as fortunately he overcomes his enemy but without realizing the bigger picture he’s still at war and rely on the harmonica to create a peaceful scene however its not a happy ending since he died.

Poilus is a 3D animation short film which was created by a student the programs used to create this was MAYA which is a 3D animation software which is a powerful tool in 3D animation as you can already see from this detailed animation, used for modelling, rendering, simulation, texturing and animation tools for vfx artists.

Toy Story is a 1995 American computer-animated buddy comedy adventure film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.The directorial debut of John Lasseter, Toy Story was the first feature-length computer-animated film and the first theatrical film produced by Pixar which was the stepping stone for Disney and pixar as it lead to similar movies such as the continuation of toy story as it received a 2 and 3 and also the monster inc franchise.toy_story

Toy Story one of the best animated films of time was a successful 3D animation which earned over $373 million dollars, creating the toy story scenes took up to 33 animators to set the stone of the movie  which changed the movie scene, however Disney did lack the computing power which means it did take them awhile to create toy story  which means editors had troubles with working on the lighting. For this film to be rendered it took about a year and 6 months to render so basically 20 months for the render through 53 processors.


In 3d computer graphics 3D/2D modelling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three/two dimensional surface of an object as you can see the modelling process of woody from toy story. What you are seeing is sub divisions of woody which is a key modeling tool that allows a precise accuracy. it is really a process whereby one can surface as the limit of a recursive process of subdividing this means the process repeats for each polygonal face into smaller faces that give a smooth surface. as OpenSundiv is at the heart of Pixars modeling pipeline and it is now being expanded to many other pipelines which means pixar really relies on subdivisions.

Types of 3D development software: 3D Studio Max, Maya, Lighware, AutoCAD and Cinema 4D these examples are used for environments, model, product design, animations, TV, Film and games.

Assets: assets are anything that can be created or has to be created in an external software such as 3ds Max, Photoshop they can be models, textures, sound effects, animations so this means you have a vase range of options to choose from.
