Most animated explainer videos today have a flat, two-dimensional look. This 2D approach works really well for simplifying ideas or processes. But in some cases, it’s critical to add a third dimension: depth.

It can be tough to tell the difference between 2D animation and 3D animation. If you really want to get technical, it’s the difference between drawing 2D illustrations and creating 3D models. But the average viewer doesn’t care about all of that. They just know that 3D seems more sophisticated and visually richer.

Clarity + Wow

That’s what makes 3D animation a powerful tool for explaining your product, service, or idea. By adding the third dimension, you can do things that 2D animation simply can’t. But along with the added benefit comes increased cost and complexity. So, it’s important to understand when the leap is worth it.

The 3 reasons to choose 3D



Seeing is believing. And there are some things you just need to see in 3D to really have the a-ha moment. Whether it’s an exploded view of your product or a 360-degree fly-around, animating in 3D gives your audience the perspective they need to truly understand what sets you apart.



Sometimes it’s not enough to just be clear. You also have to be cool. Sure, you want to show off your product or device, but you’ve got a certain brand perception to uphold. 3D animation has a wow factor that might not be possible in 2D animation or might be cost-prohibitive in live action. That means you can deliver an epiphany moment and dazzle your audience.



You don’t just want your audience to watch your video… you want them to be engaged from start to finish. And you want them to remember it afterwards. Oftentimes, 3d videos are visually compelling in a way that can’t be achieved in 2d. This added visual interest keeps your audience watching until the end and leaves them with a lasting impression that catapults them into reaching out.

Elegance is all about making things as simple as they can be – and no simpler. Using 3D animation for your explainer video allows you to simplify things without making them appear simplistic.

Each step of the Epipheo creative process, from story planning to scripting to visual style development to animation to sound design, builds towards communicating a crystal-clear message that utilizes the latest 3D technologies.

If you really want to blow your audience away and dial up the“wow” factor, 3D animation offers a world of possibilities. From immersive environments to full character animation to complex lighting and materials to realistic particle simulation, there are so many ways to grab people by the eyeballs.
