The Animation Pipeline

The Animation Pipeline has to do with creating a game that is complex enough to break into separate tasks that can be assigned to different team members. The reason why I say team members is that it is really hard to do a good animated game by yourself.

If the game or movie is something that will be for the general public, you will probably work with more than one person.

For all practical purposes, you can describe the tasks as though one person can do everything, but for the most part, some of these stages of animation can be handed off.
