So i was wondering, when i create my show reel, do i need animation in it if modeling is all i want to do. Im happy to work on lighting and texturing as well, but just not animation.
Are Studios always looking for animation in show reels, or can i create a show reel that just has stills.
Thanks in advanced
Only put animation in your reel if your applying for an animators position. Otherwise when then they see animation, they might think it's a animators reel. With that said, it might be good to show your models in animated form but i'll leave the more experienced to add to that.
With regards to whether you should know animation, most big studios keep you working on your specific job but smaller studios may get you to multi task, say modelling, rigging, animating, texturing and lighting. I believe this may also happen a lot in the games industry although i'm not to sure.
It certainly would help to know about animation. You should also take into account the rigging and texturing process because that might effect how you model. So at least an understanding the process involved will help.
Yeah, but no but yeah but no....
