This practical, fully illustrated step-by-step guide is the most complete book available on the subject. Peter Lord, co-founder of Aardman, takes you through the 3-D animation process from model-making and planning sets to the nuts-and-bolts of editing and the addition of sound. Hundreds of animation examples, including some created specially for this book, cover such basic elements as cameras, lighting, and studio set-ups, simple forms of clay animation, special effects, and how to make believable movements and expressions.
