How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by silverluci(f): 6:23pm On Nov 02, 2012
Just saw the bye bye to design section thread and am hoping all hope is not lost here.
I've got a huge problem that has been on my mind for a long time.

ANIMAtION!!

I love this particular area of graphics but most people tell me to forget it cos they say it is expensive to learn and not worth anything.

I would also love to know the softwares that would aid or put me in line for my future dream...

HELP! HELP!! HELP!!!

You can start with blender on blender.orgm it is a free software less than 50 mb and you can also get the tutorials on the page.

I wonder why we have so much views but no comment? Why do most people want solution yet do not want to help another


@landanski you said blender 3d is good but what about stuffs like corel draw and fireworks or even the one they call adobe illustrator??

Plus are you into animation yourself??

the software(s) you listed are geared towards 2d graphics design.

most 3D software have 3d in their nomenclature.


lots of tutorials on youtube, btw

just search google for 3D authoring software to get a list of names, then search youtube for tutorials on the titles you find

Thanks on her behalf
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by ladanski(m): 6:08pm On Nov 05, 2012
Yes, i am into 3d animation and teach anyone interested for free. If you want to learn, you can also view tutorials on youtube and blender.org.

i did, and then wondered. when it finally sunk in, i crossed my first line ...

silverluci: Thanks guys, u rock!! Wondering where all the females in this section are?

found any?

dont think there are female (3d) graphic artists on here. yet to come across any

as per how lucrative the field is, lets just say its not too saturated right now, so competition for employment is low, though the pay isnt so fantastic

if/when you become proficient and decide to go solo, theres a very high chance of making megabucks
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by PeterReezer: 9:33am On Nov 06, 2012
we have a problem here in nigeria...am gonna say this and am gonna say it once..."problem no.1"...the 3d industry is very lucrative in nigeria but the thing is that,we have very few potentials in nigeria and we dont even know ourselves..."problem no.2"...in the industry,there are fields...3D animation has its own requirements...the only advantage you ll have in 3D animation is if you have a science oreintation,if you re a science student...many people will confuse you with terminologies due to the reviews they read online and their little familairity with the app..."problem no.3"...many artist jump from one app to another once they find out that something that have been giving them difficulty in one app is just a button click away in another app.you ll hear someone say "hey...i use 3ds max,maya,c4d,blender,ligthwave,poser,xsi in animating"...this is unbelievable...you ll even hear people comparing one to another..."max is better than maya,c4d is better than blender and so on" and this comparison is even to some extent among the white guys too(CGTalk)...the effective use of one app to a great extent depends on the user...but keep in mind that there are specific pipelines that are employed when embarking on a project.
my best advice to you is this.....
1. choose any 3d application..i will recommend 3dsmax or maya..but whatever you choose is ok...it solely depends on you
2. stick to whatever 3d app you choose to learn and learn it to a very good extent
3. make the best out of your application
I Wish you the best

You see, that's what I m talking about..."at least know how to draw..." is not necessarily true. Though its an advantage and even to that it depends on the stage you re involved in the pipeline...I ll try not to confuse you with lots of words here...for example say you re handling the special effects of a shot that is the explosion ,shattering effect, fluids,particle dynamics and so on...you not necessarily know how to draw...but if you re in the storyboarding and modelling stage then I ll say its necessary you know how to draw so that so that you can effectively pass your message to other artist involved in that stage too...and moreover your artistic skill ll help in character development and so on...
Lol...I hope you understand...lol...have fun
Wish you the best
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by ozaro(m): 6:20am On Nov 08, 2012
its all talk talk talk....i've nevr actualy seen any 3D animated film anywhere in Nigeria that makes any sense.....there's this studio i found on mocality....Ai Multimedia studio. all they teach is 3D and mehn( i'm not xpert but i know good animation when i see one) it was way below standard. I think the problem we have is most of us lose the dream at some point...we either get tired of the long processes or cos we think its a waste of time if nobody is encouraging and all that.....I'm sure wot i just said doesn't make sense to some, but the lil dat get my point, i hope we can change this at somé point.
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by PeterReezer: 4:53pm On Nov 08, 2012

@peterReezer
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by ladanski(m): 4:59pm On Nov 09, 2012
The future is now. The sooner someone makes a high-def animation the better. I am currently working on character animation in blender. I want to make sure everything is high quality before I start posting clips. You can find tips on 3dworldmag.com on all fields of vfx.
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by velociraptor: 8:04pm On Nov 09, 2012
@landaski: yeah, u dam rite. its now or neva grin. ur character animation, is it a full movie or just a min parole. cool
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by ozaro(m): 9:44pm On Nov 09, 2012

Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by PeterReezer: 10:27pm On Nov 09, 2012
@ozaro
Do you have any plans in starting now?

@ladanski
Just take all the time need to make it look up to standard. Its worth the time
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by ozaro(m): 10:48pm On Nov 09, 2012
@peterReezer.... I'm starting from scratch. Flash animation to standard 2d then gradually into 3d. im not in any hurry

Hey Guys Animation in Nigeria is still at its conception stage. There are a lot of bad guys out there its just recently we started coming together. Animation is infact more dat just the software it is a world of art and science on its own. You have to understand those principles before u touch any software. software infact are only the finishing to a planned animation. Join the forum above and meet up with the like and brilliantly minded people. grin

Just text ur mail address to me and i will attach a free intro to 3d animation and visual effects free book to u. I wrote dis book afta answering several lies abt 3d. Hope my 4yrs experience as a 3d user will help. Let me just rush to anser dis; u dont nid to no hw to draw to do 3d, u dnt nid to ve a huge large memory or hdd lik dey claim (except for commercial purposes), u dnt nid extra brain...its just a simple understandin of ur 3d environment and tools and off u r good. My charge is dat just be ready to read, practice and dedicated. Its gradual, just be patient. Send ur mail and get more answers; its fun to be a CG Aritist..08030726430
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by PeterReezer: 8:54pm On Nov 11, 2012
@ozaro......definitely........there are many good animators that does not even know what is nairaland.com.....goodluck to you
Re: How Is The Animation Market In Nigeria by ladanski(m): 9:24pm On Nov 11, 2012
@velociraptor its a short clip but will hav good render. Btw all, starting to learn computer animation does not require a ton of memory or an expensive software. There are free alternatives you can use to create your pipeline[model-texture-animate-render
