3D animation production

Reading time: 3 minutes

Did you ever think how expensive and time-consuming, the process of a medical animation production could be?

Though in medical animation production everything is done on the computer and exported from the computer, this process takes more time than a 2D animation. It is vital to educate our clients on what goes on behind 3D medical animation production pipeline. This knowledge will not just serve them better, but also help to facilitate the collaboration process and guide their expectations. It helps our clients accomplish what they want and also allows us to communicate effectively with them.


Year of Creation


As of today, there is plenty of software on the market for creating 3D animations. A freshman in the market of medical animation naturally starts from the cheaper lower-end ones, and it takes him a minimum of a three years’ journey before he ends up with the high-end professional versions.

The process of a 3D animation pipeline is complicated and can be a lot more than any other forms of animation.

Depending on the type of project and which 3D animation studio is involved, the number of steps may vary.Here are the 8 most common steps involved in producing a 3D animation project and requires dozens of hours of research and work.

They are namely :

  1. Concept and Storyboards
  2. 3D Modeling
  3. Texturing
  4. Animation
  5. Lighting
  6. Rendering
  7. Compositing and Special VFX
  8. Editing and Final Output

The whole process is often considered to be expensive, but the reality is that the costs involved fluctuate across different media platforms and art styles. Calculating a ballpark figure is difficult as it depends on the complexity of a project. Voice over, music and sound effects can significantly increase overall costs. The costs vary greatly depending on the number of characters, environments, and complexity.
