Working with 3D Techniques
Ever since I can remember, I have always been interested in creating stuff using my computer. When I was about five years of age, that is when my father bought our first computer, and I have been interested in it ever since then. I also had a keen eye for any drawing that went with it so basically working with 3D effects was always going to be the path I chose. I at first thought that the 3D techniques that I would learn would be quite easy as I had learned a lot from the internet but that was not to be so.
I ad to do a lot of studying so hat I could work correctly with these techniques that are amazing to work with. I studied this for a while and believed when I tell you that it was no joke, though I have always been known to be a joker all my life. I remember in fifth grade I almost lost a tooth from a punch the school bully gave me for thinking I was not too funny for his taste. I got over that, though, and I decided that I wasn’t going to be bullied anymore, being a programmer, however, doesn’t help much to stand up for myself, but I am glad that I am in the field that I had always wanted. I can’t say the same for the guy.
Getting back to 3D techniques, there is this method known as 3D mapping, and this is basically what helps you move around. A lot of the people out there that navigate each day thanks to me haven’t even sent thank you letters yet. Anyway, am just kidding, this technique is what helps us see the world that we are in 3D. You gather information, and a lot of it, concerning the location that you want to map.
This helps a lot so that whatever is in that location can be represented on the map in the form of 3-Dimension. This will assist the user to interpret it easily, and that is where you come in after I have done all that work. It might seem like a few words describing it like that but believe me, when I tell you that it takes a lot of dedication and hard work actually to pull it off.
I have to do a lot of work and here are just some of the techniques in the 3D transformation that I use for me to get creative and make lots of amazing stuff come to life. The first one is a rotation, and this involves rotating the work on a platform with X, Y and Z axes. There is also Scaling that involves the change of size of an object that you are representing in your work.
So, if you want to make a mountain smaller when you are doing the mapping, this is the technique that you will use to accomplish this. When it comes to the Shear technique, what needs to be done slant the object along the Y, X or Z axes. All these methods might seem like a bit easy for anyone that is willing to do them, but it takes a lot of practice to get them right. These are basically what help me to represent any location on a map with the ease that it requires.
Getting creative with these techniques allow me to do so much, and I can’t be the happier as this is one of the best jobs that you can have around the globe. Okay, I’ll admit being an astronaut is cool, but there is none that comes to this as you get to do what you have always wanted to do since you were a kid and that is exactly what I do. It is amazing, and I can’t think of anything else that I would be doing except this 3D mapping that is just joyous.
Getting creative with a computer to create these astonishing things is something that you don’t come by daily. That is why I cherish this that I do and getting to work with these different techniques to accomplish tasks that sometimes look impossible is just amazing and if you were in my shoes you’d know how amazing it feels like to do this day in day out.
