3D Layout and Blocking ( 3D Animatic ) using Blender

Help filmmakers get an idea of what a sequence will look like before actual Film shooting.

They are used to test timings and flow and to see if the sequence gets the correct meaning across at the right pace.
3D Layout and Blocking ( 3D Animatic )are the blueprint for your project. They show you what works and what doesn't,
where objects should start and finish, and give you the basic impression of your final product.
They are the first step toward success.
