  • Transformers the movie-making requires expertise and high level hardware specifications. The sophistication of the robots in this film did not escape from the hard work of its director, Michael Bay, as well as a visual effects company founded by George Lucas, Industrial Light and Magic (ILM). Cooperation both produce cars, airplanes, and heavy equipment that can turn into giant robots that can move swiftly.

    Research and development of animation technologies to create character depth in the Transformers have been started since the first film. To create the character corresponding icon Transformer cartoon series, as quoted from various sources, the production team working team Hasbro, the toy company creators Transformer model.

    Production designer Jeff Mann's first Transformers was instrumental in creating a real live action robot that was originally just a cartoon. To create a robot character, it takes thousands of component pieces that are put together into a giant robot. Through digital techniques, a team of special effects to create the components are then put dots so that the movement is more easily moved later.

    If all components of each robot character in the film arranged side by side, it could reach 290 kilometers in length or width of the state of California. After assembling each component, the next challenge is to make robots that move.

    "People think a giant robot must move slowly but Michael Bay wanted agile robot ninja and action-packed," says ILM Digital Production Supervisor Jeff White. In order to make it happen, the production team collected various stunt scenes footage for later imitated his movements on the animated robots.

    This suspenseful film presents many wonders of animation. Not only the action of Optimus Prime and his partner, the film is also decorated with an explosion due to battle robots. Explosions that appeared were not all of which are animated.

    The reason, unknown production team also uses the original use of explosives is planned. The end result, Autobot or Decepticon look very detailed and has flawless movement.

  • Certainly not a few of us who questioned the technology what and how films are created creative. Apparently, the key to making these films is a graphical computer application called computer generated imagery (CGI). With this software can create 3D images complete with a variety of desired effects.   Some software is popular among other CGI Art of Illusion (can be downloaded at, Maya, Blender, and others.

    CGI is an engineering application of computer graphics technology for the manufacture of specially effects (special effects) in the film. Software (software / program) a computer that is usually used in the application of CGI include 3ds Max, Blender, Light Wafe 3D, Maya, Softimage and Autodesk. CGI or also called Computer-generated imagery is a good visual-visual form of still photographs and film / advertising / interactive element in a website that was created with computer graphics software. Visuals generated by the CGI process is usually put forward the elements of photo-realistic or resemblance to the original. (Computer-Generated Imagery). CGI technology is making the resulting picture is better and looks like real.  Glen Taylor, the founder and director of operations James Taylor, a CGI company domiciled in the UK say that now we can find many images produced by CGI, in part or in whole. Starting from the animated film, video & computer games, special effects in films & TV commercials, interactive content on the website and in the manufacture of a visual photography.

    CGI technology development continues to be reported each year at the annual SIGGRAPH conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques, attended by tens of thousands of computer professionals. Here the figures behind the creation of animated images meet. It is not impossible that one day the animators Indonesia would be a lot of talk on the world stage.

Frequent communication techniques more familiar words of art said to communicate.

    Origins of Film Animation Techniques
    Human desire to create an image or santiran (image) that lives and moves as pantara of disclosure (expression) them,
    embodies the basic form of animation that life evolved. The word itself is actually animated adaptation of the word animation, which comes from the word to animate, in a general English-Indonesian dictionary meaning turn (Wojowasito 1997). In general the animation is an activity switch, move inanimate objects; An inanimate object is given a boost of strength, spirit and emotions to be alive and moving, or just a memorable life.

    Ancient Japanese painting shows a plot of the living, by deploying coils painting, made in the Heian period (794-1192) (Americana encyclopedias volume 19, 1976). Then came the toy called Thaumatrope around the 19th century in Europe, a sheet of thick cardboard discs, a picture of birds in a cage, which both sides left a rope tied to his right, when twisted by hand will give the bird moving images santir (Laybourne 1978:18) .

    Until the 1880s, Jean Marey portrait using a continuous record streak of movement of birds flying, human activities and other animals. A tool that became the forerunner of film cameras is a growing life to date. And in 1892, Emile Reynauld developed a toy called Praxinoscope ayng animated images, a series of hundreds of animated images are rotated and projected on a mirror into a motion movie, a tool precursor in cinema projector (Laybourne 1978:23).

    While in the United States of Winsor McCay (see picture beside) animated film "Gertie the Dinosaur" in 1909. Blabar figures drawn in black with a white background. Following in the following years the American animator animated films began developing the technique around 1913 to the early 1920s; Max Fleischer to develop "Ko Ko The Clown" and Pat Sullivan to make "Felix The Cat". The series of drawings made as simple as possible, where the figure is drawn blabar unite black or black shadow against a background of basic blabar black or made otherwise. McCay create a formula film with
    computation time, 16 times per second in motion pictures.

    Fleischer and Sullivan have made use of animation techniques sell, that is transparent sheets of celluloid material (Celluloid) called ldquo; cell ".
    Another beginner in Germany, Lotte Reineger, in 1919, developing animated films shadows, and Bertosch of France, in the 1930 animated film making experimental pieces with figures derived from pieces of wood. The following figure is a figure "Gertie The Dinosaurs", and "Felix the Cat"

    George Pal started using the dolls as a figure in a short animated film, in 1934 in the Netherlands. And Alexsander Ptushko from Russia
