3D Animation

Karachi, Sindh - Pakistan

Working as a pipeline engineer since July 2012, I have gained deep understanding of TV series, TVC and VFX pipelines. I maintain a close relationship and regular communication with department heads and senior artists to know about their processes, workflows and software requirements. I convert their requirements into easy to use Python tools to make life easier for artists of Maya and Nuke, keeping them away from manual tasks, allowing them to focus entirely on creativity and increasing their productivity and efficiency.
