Revue de presse

"Tony White's newer books: Animation from Pencils to Pixels: Classical Techniques for the Digital Animator, and How to Make Animated Films: Tony White's Complete Masterclass on the Traditional Principals of Animation are just as excellent. The Complete Masterclass title contains much of what is in The Animator's Workbook along with much more. Animation from Pencils to Pixels is a much broader book. It covers project financing, animation pre and post-production, basic filmmaking principles, soundtrack recording, etc. while also including the principles of animation production itself."

"From traditional to computer animation, from film to gaming, a great text for all who teach."--Robert Adams, Walt Disney Productions/Warner Bros

Because the book resonates with wisdom that comes with spending years in the trenches of Toon Town, it should be a must-read for anyone who wants to brave the waters of digital animation. Overall, it's a handsome companion to White's earlier primer, The animator's Workbook.”--Animation, Nov. 2006

An excellent overview by an excellent author. 16 août 2006
Par Nancy Beiman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The long-awaited sequel to Tony White's ANIMATOR'S WORKBOOK is worth the wait.

ANIMATION FROM PENCILS TO PIXELS is unique among animation books since artwork from White's short film ENDANGERED SPECIES is used to illustrate most of the sections of the book, though some student work is also included. Some material from THE ANIMATOR'S WORKBOOK is repeated, mainly in the sections that deal with action analysis. White has included valuable chapters on Flash and vector-based 2D animation. While drawing is clearly his first love there are also chapters on CGI '3D' animation written from the perspective of a professional animator.

The massive book (over 500 pages long) is readable and easy to navigate. Images are large and well-placed (this has been a notable failing in many animation how-to books.)

It's quite ambitious to incorporate preproduction, production, and post in two media into one volume. If you want a good, well written overview of animation production in the 21st century, this is the book to get.

I would like to see ENDANGERED SPECIES on a full DVD copy; the PDF format in the original edition is a bit hard to play on this computer.

Great for Students! 15 février 2007
Par John Eyley - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Students of animation! This book is essential for your home or studio shelf. Animation From Pencils to Pixels is a comprehensive overview of animation production for the digital animator. As a text book it covers the lot - the mechanics of animation, funding your projects, the traditional aspects (yes, they're still important), new tools and methods, the business and copyright of your work, getting the concept and where to go with it. It is a classy tome well laid out and encourages you to read on easily. Other books on animation go into more depth concerning the specifics in animation but for an overall appreciation of the art and industry you can't go past this one. It is a good companion book to The Animator's Survival Kit (can I mention that?) which has more depth on the nitty-gritties of animated movement. My only criticism is the "I, I, I...." stance of the author. But with the profile and experience that Tony has there is a lot here to learn from, while in the early years of discovering the art of animating.

A dream and a number 2 pencil will take you anywhere 25 mars 2008
Par Keith Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have studied animation for the last several years. I am a Flash designer specializing in E-learning in the Seattle market. I am not just a casual reader of this topic.

Why I like this book. When you go to school for animation you have a lot of stuff thrown at you and no matter how good your notes are you can not remember it all. You need to refresh your skills. This book was not only good at that but also much more. It is a fun read, an interesting read.

This book covers the complete process from picking up the pencil to marketing/distribution. Tony knows his stuff, he should he has been a professional animator for many years and you have probably seen his works. If you have seen the Pink Panther Strikes Again ("does your dog bite?") you have, he did all the animation for the film.

Traditional animation is an art form and it seems like it is finally getting some of the respect it deserves. 3D is the rage these days, Pixel does an excellent job and nobody does it better, unfortunately there are more bad 3D feature films than good. Even Disney is hiring back some traditional animators and creating some old school, that's cool.

If you want to learn animation pick up this book and The Illusion of Life and you will learn so very much. But the learning process also requires doing. Like the saying goes, "A dream and a number 2 pencil will take you anywhere".

The best book on making an animated film. period 23 novembre 2007
Par Chesterton D. Miller - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The ultimate book for digital 2d animators, I cant imagine having a better animation related book.

Even though this book is mainly aimed at animators, it covers the entire production process for an animated film. The book covers writing, storyboarding, animatics, soundtrack recording, animation, and even 3d modeling. I was very impressed by the detail in the book, for instance one chapter (the rules of filmmaking) has 141 pages devoted to camera angles, and traditional film editing exclusively. The book is especially of interest to independent animators who want to make an animated film from start to finish with the use of the computer. However pretty much anyone with an interest in animation would like this book.

Animation from Pencils to Pixels is by far my favorite animation book.
Great Material for Every CG Animator 22 décembre 2007
Par Mark - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Lacking an understanding of traditional 2D animation skills is a complaint many times heard when talking with CG Animation studio employers. They'll tell you that plenty would-be animators know how to click the right button in the software, but far fewer understand the foundational concepts and principles of WHAT they're doing and WHY. If you're looking for a well-written title on the subject of applying classic animation techniques and principles to the digital world, 'Pencils to Pixels' is an excellent resource. Covering story development, the rules of filmmaking, the principles of animation, and an overview of creating 2D animation from start to finish, the book should fill in many of the 'gaps' new 3D animators possess simply due to not coming from a 2D traditional animation background.
