3D Character Management and Expenses
Status Quo of the 3D Character Application
Mobile phones, tablets, desktop computers, and other gaming accessories have their demand on the rise in the world today. This is due to the increasing number of game consumers cutting across all ages. With the current advancements in technological fields, you will need to woo more players to your game by creating characters that are more real. 3D animation outsourcing is rapidly spreading with the establishment of several 3D outsourcing companies ready for hire. The increased number of 3D animation outsourcing companies are making their prices relatively friendly in the bid to fight existing competition. The creation of 3D characters is slowly eating away the 2D character games from the market.
The Adoption of 3D Animation in General Business
Advancements in technology have made it possible for the incorporation of the 3D characters in all spheres of the economy. The general businesses available in the market are much oriented towards adopting the latest improvement in technology to compete effectively. However, the major setback for these companies is the lack of qualified personnel to create the 3D animation required. As the manager of the company, you can persuade the management body to seek the services of a 3D game outsourcing company. For example, you may hire unity 3D developer for the solutions to your 3D animation problems. One of the best outsourcing companies is Game Factory which uses unity 3D.
The challenges of the Virtual Youtubers
The demand for 3D graphics content has created a wide niche in the market. To fill this gap in the market, content developers are coming up with virtual YouTube content featuring the main characters as 3D characters. With the increased numbers of virtual YouTubers, Kizuna Ai remains the most popular virtual Youtuber in Japan and the pioneer. The following are some of the difficulties faced by Kizuna Ai;
Ø Increased competition
Several other players are eyeing the market of YouTube content subscribers. Kizuna, therefore, has to be extra creative to maintain its subscribers.
Ø Strict rules governing YouTube content
The Kizuna Ai YouTube channel was banned back in January 2017 when Kizuna joked of her garments being purely holographic estimates, and she is technically naked always. The ban was later lifted in February 2017, and the subscribers of the content increased in number. To avoid further penalties, the YouTube channel needs to adhere to the terms and conditions.
Ø The Language Barrier
The videos uploaded by Kizuna Ai on YouTube are all created in Japanese. This barrier acts as a significant barrier to some consumers who do not understand Japanese. The A.I Channel goes an extra mile of creating subtitles for the content to reach as many consumers as possible.
Ø Most consumers are unaware of the YouTube Channel
The YouTube channel has approximately 2.5 million YouTube subscribers. This is a tiny percentage of the world population which fancies the 3D graphics content. The channel needs to diversify on its airing platforms to reach more audience
