Animation software & design software packages are used for the development for high-end 3D computer graphics, 3D modeling, video game development, image, design, and animation manipulations.
The requirement of animation software & design software in the Entertainment industry is being driven by the increasing demand of special effects, animations and 3D visualization in feature films, cartoons, television programs, commercials, music & corporate videos, interactive game production, web design, and interactive web streaming. Several movie studios across the globe are extensively using animation software and design software for a variety of purposes, during the entire movie making process. In fact, some movies are almost entirely based on 3D modeling and 3D computer graphics software. Further, considerable and consistent rise in satellite and cable TV broadcasting operations and increasing reach of the Internet are also contributing to the increasing demand for animation-based entertainment content. Animation software tools, especially the 3D design tools used for creating life-like computer-generated outputs, are expected to benefit from the intensifying activity in the Entertainment industry.
Animation software and design software are often the offshoots of the software tools used in engineering-related design and development, such as CAD, 3D CAD. Engineering software with advanced, sophisticated features and capabilities can be successfully used in the Animation and Entertainment industry. Moreover, almost all the major engineering software design companies are entering/have entered into the Media and Entertainment industry, owing to its enormous potential.
