3D animation video of a server farm

Making AI artificial intelligence tangible

Who hasn't always wanted to know what's hidden in the dark of a server farm? Which customer or investor wouldn't like to see in advance where their data or capital is located? What kind of technology is there?

This was the case for a company that develops server farm solutions around artificial intelligence and offers them to be shown in 3D visualization. And in a high-quality and futuristic way.

Animation video building a server farm

The heart of the server farm are graphics cards for the high-performance range. These are bundled into a specially developed server housing and stacked on top of each other in server cabinets. Everything is space-optimized and designed for optimal power supply.

If it sounds easy, it is, at least in an animated video! In reality, of course, there is a lot more to it. The 3D video is intended to show the structure and complexity of such a server farm in a simple way.

At the end of the 3D animation, security aspects to protect the server farm, such as surveillance cameras, fire alarm systems and a security service, are also highlighted.

Blue light effects for futuristic design

The customer wanted the animation video to be high-quality and futuristic. Precisely because a server farm for AI is also a future topic. In the animation, this was implemented using blue light effects that underline certain highlights of the products or the process and put it in the right light.

From the illustrated storyboard to the finished animation video

At the beginning of the animation creation there is a coordination with the customer. What should be shown? Which process steps are important? What should be explained in detail? All of these questions flow into an initial, rough, bullet-point description of the process. Based on this, an illustrated storyboard is then created. In this storyboard, all the important steps are shown as they can be seen in the later 3D animation. As a customer, you can see in advance what the later video will look like and, if necessary, incorporate correction requests.

3D animated person with outlines

One of the most complex animation techniques is moving people. Each arm, leg, head and body must be animated individually.

In order to underline the topic of security, the idea of having a security guard patrol the server room as a 3D animated person arose in this project. And so that this comes across as cool as well as futuristic, the outline of the person was shown in blue/white glowing outlines. This technique allows you to see the security guard and the message behind them, but without fleshing out a person in great detail in 3D.

Coordinated music – dramatic structure

In order to get the right kick into the animation video, suitable music is important. Especially with 3D animations, it is very possible to create a suitable video for the previously selected music.

Of course, music couldn't be missing from this project either. First a music was chosen and then the appropriate sequence of the animation was created in the Animations-Maschine's head. Everything can be animated to the second so that it fits the beat and structure of the respective music.

What happened next was impressive!

"While looking for a professional provider, I came across Roland Walgenbach. It was immediately clear to me from his example work that I wanted to have an animation like that and the personal conversation completely convinced me. What happened next was impressive! I couldn't describe exactly in words how it should look or be implemented. I basically wanted a video showing our servers and secure environment. And from my “instructions” it was absolutely NOT clear to me how to create something great out of it. Roland has an incredible sense of what I wanted and used it to create a really great animation for our servers. Of course, complete with great background music. The feedback from our customers was also consistently positive! I am very happy to have found Roland for our 3D animations and am looking forward to commissioning him for the next videos."
