In this tutorial, the way the above animated GIF was constructed will be shown. We will cover how the safe was modeled and animated. However, the final compilation was made in Corel Lumiere which is an old animation editor, so the way the letters were made will not be covered.
Sometimes you build the perfect scene, but you want to include a model you built in Rhino or 3DS or Poser -- or whatever. Or you may decide to insert a pre-made model that you downloaded. This is a basic tutorial in doing that.
