Can you animate and game programing in the same studio? I would like to do both. When I talk about animating, I mostly mean minecraft animations but I will probably do a little more than that.
I'm 14 so I'm planning on taking master degrees in both animating and game coding and studio of coding and animating, so I need to learn alot. If I can't do it in one studio, i'll try it in two because this is my dream and I plan to not fail, but I have a plan B which is just game coding and a youtube channel. #game-coding #animating #studio
Both of those areas are important in gaming. There is frequently a job called Technical Artist in a game studio that is someone who uses knowledge of coding and animation to help build the tools that create the animations and get animations into the game (we call this the animation pipeline). That role is very valuable on a game team, as they work to improve the quality and efficiency of the work of many people. There are also people who write code to help develop motion capture pipelines. In many cases, motion capture replaces hand animations, but the people who make these systems understand both. There is another role known as a character rigger that creates the skeletons of characters, which is very closely tied to both animation and the technology that drives the animation system.
If you truly want to both animate and write code, it would be more likely to happen at a smaller, independent studio. On teams making large games, like Halo or Call of Duty or Minecraft, there are hundreds of people on a team and the roles get more specialized. However, I will point out, that larger game teams tend to pay more than smaller teams and have more stability. Making games is challenging and small companies go out of business all the time. But they can also be more rewarding as you usually have more input into the overall process.

Great thinking, As I understand Animation and gaming go hand in hand. While developing a game, animations of characters, scenarios and so on is given.
Now the first question you need to ask yourself is what you want to learn first? I don't see a problem being able to do it in one studio. As far as I know most of the game development firms have in house animators and game coders working.
From your question, I could make out that you seem to have keen interest in game development or coding. No harm in starting the learning :)
All the best !!
