    Default 3D short animation

    Hello,

    I have some doubts about my idea...

    I am newbie in 3D and other kind of graphics making type. That is the lead why I am here.

    To the cases: I have idea to make short animation, where camera going in to the tunel, then camera still going forward thru tunel, then entering in to the as I call it 'barrel or cylinder'.
    Inside of this cylinder there are many frames with movies which are played. (similar to paintings on the walls, galleries)
    I want to make some kind of animation, where person who looking at this complete project feel like entering to some kind of gallery, and will hear the music and then could look at the musicans, singers, dancers on the walls.

    What could you recomend for me? Which kind of software, some tutorials?

    an honest answer ...

    there is no software that will do this for you automatically

    you can do the effect, but you will need to know how to use the software you choose

    are you an animator ? - because if you are not you will need to learn the basics before you can even start such a thing...

    Take a look at BluffTitler for the animation along with Bixangelo for creating vector drawings for following a path - the camera can follow the path.

    Look at BixPack 26 which has templates for rollercoasters to see some of what can be done.

    Look through the examples.

    Then go through the Community and look at examples of what people have created. Search for Tunnels.

    Users have done things similar to what you want, if not in one show then in several.

    Here is an example of the a tunnel show that comes with BluffTitler that can be used as a starting point to understand the camera following the path and the tunnel with a texture.

    Then you have a very steep learning curve ahead of you followed by maybe a hundred hours or more to make your video.

    Stunning example of what can be done with BluffTitler

    you are welcome

    it could be done in Toon Boom Harmony, which I use, or I would imagine Adobe CC, niether of which would be any easier from scratch, and both expensive

    I should have mentioned the pricing for BluffTitler:
    Single user license, EASY edition € 29.95
    Single user license, PRO edition € 49.95
    Single user license, ULTIMATE edition € 79.95

    20% DISCOUNT!
    Use the coupon code: HAPPY OCTOPUS

    I use the Ultimate Edition.

    They are working on a 64 bit version that will probably be out soon.

    Read the second message in this thread from the owner/developer which explains some of the reasons that he developed BluffTitler.
