Arena Animation International Program – Visual Effects (AAIP – VFX) is an intensive career course that will train you in all aspects of visual effects. The course helps you create special effects for films, TV shows, ads, games, digital media, etc. You can learn 3D modeling, digital sculpting, character animation, rotoscopy, and more.



The battle scenes in the movie ’300′ were created using crowd simulation, as was the animal army in ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’. Instead of creating crowd scenes manually, you can now create large crowds within minutes. With Arena, you learn & experience the latest tool used in Hollywood to create crowd simulations.
Create different types of characters to show a crowd in a stadium, in a battle zone, in a race or competition, etc. Basically, wherever you need to show a number of people or characters together in a scene, you can use this software to create them quickly and beautifully.
