ABOVE OUR EXPECTATIONS

It has now been a few months that we have been working with Pixune Studios and the quality they deliver is truly impressive. From the start, they have been understanding our vision and providing 3D animations that were above our expectations. We are already engaging ourselves in a long term partnership.

SUPPORTIVE AND PATIENT

I am blown away by the work of Pixune Studios. I really didn't know how I would be able to replicate my daughter's drawing, but Pixune Lak assured me that they could make Laci become a reality. I have had a ton of experiences when it comes to creative art designs, and they didn't turn out well. So, I was even more uneasy when he handed me off to Reza to handle my design. However, Reza and the entire design team were just as supportive and patient with me throughout the entire process, even when I made additional changes. Pixune Studios maintained its integrity by fulfilling the job as agreed and exceeded my expectations. This is only the beginning. Thank you again.

QUALITY IS THEIR FIRST PRIORITY

During the first meeting with Mohammad, I learned a lot about YouTube marketing and the process of creating 3D animation. Although their price was higher than my budget, I decided to collaborate with them because of their quality and communication. I really enjoyed working with Pixune Studios because they were always in touch and ready for meetings and revisions. Since quality is their first priority, even though I was satisfied with the design of the main character of my YouTube animation, they designed it again from scratch at their own expense to make a memorable mascot for my animation. And finally, the result was much better than my expectations, so that we are planning the next project with them.

TRUST THEIR EXPERTISE

Pixune Studios went above and beyond to ensure that the 3D animation required for my project was completed by the deadline and within the budget that was allotted. I truly appreciated their hard work and dedication to their clients– often working very late into their evening so that every detail and point of feedback was addressed in time. The quality of animation was impeccable, and I can definitely say that I trust their expertise when it comes to 3D work. They made sure to provide consistent communication and provide updates along the way, which made it much easier to trust them and their process. I highly recommend Pixune Studios to anyone looking for 3D design support!

SURPRISED WITH THE QUALITY

We had a character animation that needed to be done for a large project and we were given a short timeline. Pixune and the team worked with our internal team to take one scene. They were prompt, worked within our timeline, and delivered quality work! I was hesitant to hire an outside of our company as we typically handle all animation in house but the timeline was too short for our team to complete. We were presently surprised with the quality and how seamless the workflow was. Would recommend!

BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS

Pixune Studios was hired to create a two minute animated music video to accompany a new song from Canadian recording artist EVETA. After contacting many animation studios in Canada and in the US, it became apparent to us that a ‘high quality’, ‘world class’ animated music video could not be produced for the budget that we had in mind. Poland based Pixune Studios was the only company that could produce what we wanted within the necessary budget. Furthermore, the Pixune team was easy to reach and communicate with. Given the complexities of operating during a worldwide pandemic, our project did incur a bit of a delay but in the end, the quality of the product delivered was BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS. I would highly recommend Pixune as a ‘go to’ animation studio for the music industry.

TEAM WAS NICELY ENGAGED

Masoud delivered a solid job when turning our 2d drawing into a 3d model. The topology was constructed properly, and character likeness was maintained to a good extent. Overall there was little to adjust, and it was quickly done. His team was nicely engaged into our project and even brought in a bit of their own creativity, contributing inspirational ideas along the way.

BETTER THAN THE REFERENCE

The quality of the art received was really impressive after the team came up with ideas and improvements all the time for the characters. Being timely and attentive to details is great but their passion and involvement in our project were amazing! We will surely collaborate again. The team is very passionate and we were amazed when we got the final result which was better than the reference we provided, a reference that we really liked. I can say that we loved their work and that they are able to take an idea and bring it to life thanks to the passion they are working with and the perfect communication they are providing until the best result is reached.

HIGHLY COOPERATIVE PEOPLE

The Pixune team is full of kind, excellent, considerate, empathetic, talented, and highly cooperative people. The quality of the work that was received was outstanding, however it did take multiple iterations to reach that level. Some instructions were missed, but were fixed - it just lengthened the process and the schedule.

HIT EVERY DEADLINE

Awesome work. Great communication. Was really happy with Pixune and how great this project came out. Hit every deadline, and even when we needed to change directions a bit, he was able to still hit the deadline. We will certainly be working with Pixune again.

SURELY COME BACK AGAIN

This guy did really good work, he really did amazing art and even after the artist finished he wasn't happy with it so he did it all over again from scratch. I really recommend him and will surely come back again. (this is already the second time)

THE END RESULT WAS WORTH

This was a great experience overall. He took time to actually understand what was needed to deliver the project that I was asking for. Modelers tend to rush because they think they know what the client want, but Pixune went over to clarify the specifics. It required a little more time than we agreed on. However, the end results was worth an extra few days. Trust me...it's worth waiting a few more days, than to have something you don't like at the end. I highly recommend to anybody reading this review. And I look forward working with Pixune again. Thank You!

PIXUNE GOT THE PROJECT RIGHT FROM THE START

Pixune got the project right from the start. We had a somewhat unique art style that needed consideration to be both cartoony and low poly. They were great at interpreting the brief and adding their own style and ideas which really helped. Throughout the rest of the concepts and 3D models & animation steps, nothing was a problem, they asked good questions and were happy to jump on a video call for updates at any time. We will be using them in the future!

We provide 3D rigging services in the USA, UK, Canada, the Middle East, etc. We understand the importance of seamless collaboration across borders and time zones. Most of our clients are from the USA and here is how we ensure efficient collaboration despite time zones and languages:

  • A dedicated account manager will be assigned to your project, available during flexible hours, including weekends, to facilitate seamless communication and act as an interpreter if needed.
  • All our key team members, including the project manager and those you’ll communicate with, are proficient in English for efficient collaboration.

Our entire process of 3D rigging has 9 main steps:

  1. Modeling Preparation: Create a well-structured 3D model with clean topology, divided into separate components or parts to facilitate the rigging process.
  2. Joint Hierarchy Setup: Riggers create a virtual skeleton consisting of a hierarchy of joints or bones that will control the movement and deformation of the character or object.
  3. Skinning and Weight Painting: Associate the 3D model’s geometry with the joint hierarchy through a process called skinning. Riggers assign different parts of the model to the appropriate joints, which will influence their movement.
  4. Control Rig Setup: Intuitive control objects like handles, controllers, or locators are created and linked to the underlying joint hierarchy. These controls allow animators to easily manipulate the character or object through techniques like constraints, expressions, or scripting.
  5. Facial Rigging: For characters with detailed facial features, specialized facial rigs are set up using blend shapes, clusters, or joint-based systems. These control the movement of facial muscles, enabling realistic expressions, lip-syncing, and eye movements.
  6. Muscle Rigging: If the character has visible musculature, muscle rigging techniques may be employed. Secondary muscle systems are created to deform and bulge realistically as the character moves, simulating the behavior of muscles beneath the skin.
  7. Hair and Cloth Rigging: For characters with elements like hair, fur, or clothing, specialized rigs are set up to simulate their natural movements. This can involve dynamic simulations, constraints, and custom rigs to capture the behavior of these elements.
  8. Rig Testing and Refinement: Riggers thoroughly test the rig to identify and fix any issues or glitches. They work closely with animators to refine the controls, ensuring that the rig is efficient, intuitive, and meets the project’s requirements.
  9. Rig Documentation and Delivery: Once complete, riggers document the controls, functions, and best practices for using the rig. This information, along with the final rig file, is provided to the animation team, ensuring a smooth transition to the animation phase.

There are 4 logical reasons for you to consider outsourcing your project to a 3D rigging house:

  1. Saving Money and Time: 3D rigging requires specialized talent across many roles, and hiring them in-house has challenges. A professional 3D rigging studio houses all the expertise necessary to bring your visions to life efficiently, speedily, and cost-effectively.
  2. Creativity: Have you ever considered that you can outsource creativity, too? Apple partnered with Hovey-Kelley for creative ideas when inventing the mouse. 3D rigging studios thrive on imagination and creativity.
  3. Quality: Practice makes perfect. 3D rigging companies produce countless 3D rigs, constantly honing skills and staying current on industry trends and tools. Their experience enables high-quality 3D rigging services delivery without wasted time or budget.
  4. Scalability: Expanding a 3D project scale requires growing your team. That’s challenging in-house but not for a 3D rigging company with access to more artists. 3D rigging studios maintain larger talent pools and connections to scale up readily.

There are 4 criteria for picking the best 3D rigging studio for your projects:

  • Portfolio: A 3D rigging studio’s expertise is showcased via its breathtaking art portfolio, and nothing tells better what they are capable of than its past works.
  • Reviews: Read their reviews online and see what their past clients think of them. The most honest on-hand thing you can find in the best 3D rigging companies is their online reviews.
  • Communication: First impressions matter – especially when it comes to communication. If they’re slow to respond or just plain rude from the get-go, imagine how it’ll be once they have your money! Trust your gut and work with people who make you feel good.
  • Time and Budget Compatibility: After all, you might find the best 3D rigging companies in the world, but your time schedule and/or money budget do not meet their demands. Find a 3D rigging outsourcing partner that meets all the previous characteristics as well as your budget and schedule.

A good 3D rigging involves 8 key elements:

  1. Efficient topology: The mesh should have proper edge flow and polygon distribution to allow for smooth deformations.
  2. Appropriate bone structure: The skeleton should accurately represent the character’s anatomy and movement capabilities.
  3. Proper weight painting: Vertices should be assigned to bones with correct weight distribution for natural deformations.
  4. Intuitive controls: The rig should have user-friendly controls that allow animators to easily manipulate the character.
  5. Flexibility: The rig should accommodate various poses and movements without breaking or causing unwanted deformations.
  6. Performance optimization: The rig should be efficiently designed to minimize computation time during animation.
  7. Secondary motion controls: Features like dynamic hair, cloth, or muscle systems enhance realism.
  8. Facial rigging: For characters with faces, a well-designed facial rig is crucial for expressing emotions.

Here’s what you can expect from our 3D rigging studio:

  1. Regular Updates: We’ll provide you with regular updates on the progress for your feedback.
  2. Revision Process: We understand revisions are often part of the creative process. We offer a structured revision process to ensure your feedback is incorporated effectively.
  3. Open Door Policy: We have an open-door policy, so you’re welcome to ask questions or discuss any concerns you may have at any time.
  4. Educational Resources: We can provide you with educational resources to help you better understand the 3D rigging process and the creative decisions involved.
