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.

Pixar RenderMan: From the snowflakes and castles in the film 'Frozen' to the detailed character design of 'Monsters University', all are the result of Pixar RenderMan.

It has advanced features to create dazzling visual effects for animation or films. And Arena has the exclusive rights in India to teach this fantastic new tool to our students, giving you the edge to get ahead in your career.

Projection Mapping: Car brands like Lamborghini, Audi & Hyundai Accent have used projection mapping by splashing different colors & changing background scenery at the launch of their new cars.

Projection mapping is used for car & bike shows, fashion shows, trade exhibitions, basically anywhere where there is scope for showcasing designs on any surface, be it walls or ceilings or even outdoors during a rock concert! Projection mapping is fast becoming the preferred tool to advertise, entertain and inform.
