I need a quick definition for these two terms and what exactly do they mean. Also I would like to know where exactly does modeling, texturing, lighting, etc would fit in? Is it in the pre-production stage or during production??
Thanks in advance!
P.S. I need to make a list of my abilities ranging from pre all the way to post but I’m not sure where some of them go.
e.g. story telling, writing, generating ideas, 3D modeling, texturing, lighting, color correction, vfx, etc…
From what I’ve gathered, pre-production ranges from idealizing, to everything in between before actually getting into the production stage. But I don’t know if 3D modeling, texturing, etc falls along that category or not.
I think pre-production is preparing before actual work (from your list story telling, writing, generating ideas)
production is actual work on 3D modeling, texturing, lighting, rigging, animation, rendering etc
and post-production is finalizing like color correction, adding vfx, etc.
I’m wondering if modeling fits into pre-production just looking at a wiki page about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pre-production if the main goal for what you’re doing is an animation then essentially it’s a film of sorts like a commercial shoot I’m sure they do the same things.
Preproduction includes writing the script, drawing pictures of the characters, planning out the shots in storyboards, and crating a mock up version of the film called a animatic. Postproduction is anything you do after you have the final product. This includes rendering and compositing, as well as getting your movie sold.
