360Quadrants Evaluation Approach
360Quadrants selected and assessed the top animation software vendors. These vendors were analyzed based on more than 100 shortlisted data pointers collected from product and company strategy evaluation, and inputs received from buyers and industry experts. Some of the parameters are rendering, 3D animation, and flipbook motion.
Rendering-Rendering refers to the generation of photorealistic images through 2D or 3D animation. It is mainly used in architectural design, games, animated videos, and many more.
3D animation- 3D animation is the feature of animation software where motion is added to the images so that they appear like a film. In this, the objects are images which are quickly sequenced for creating the illusion of motion.
Flipbook motion- Flipbook motion involves the sequencing of images in quick succession so that they appear as if moving pictures.
All of these parameters were assigned weightages, post this, the inputs were analyzed. This helped analysts in evaluating the absolute rating based on which the animation software providers were ranked and placed on the 360Quadrant.
