One thing we can’t deny is that 3D animation is evolving, and it’s evolving fast! Each year, new trend is coming up, transitioning from simple characters to complex abstractions, hyper realism, and immersive graphics like VR.
The software enabling these revolutions such as Houdini and Cinema 4D are also upgrading their features on a yearly (if not monthly) basis. Not to mention the ever increasing list of plugins and scripts popping up every day.
