This is an introductory course for younger students who want to learn to build simple video games. This course includes how to use the rendering tool of Ray tracing to produce realistic reflections and refractions and how to integrate 2D and 3D images to create innovative environments and scenes. This course will take students through the process of understanding how light works to create color. For 3D animations, objects models are built on the computer monitor modeled and 3D figures are rigged with a virtual skeleton.
Python is a universal language used across a multitude of industries. This course will take students through the process of understanding how light works to create color. Demonstrations on character building, set construction, and design, armatures, and lighting for miniature. The class will also address not just the differences but the similarities in writing for live-action versus animation, from concept to finished screenplay, as well as the beginnings stages of production as a script is delivered to storyboard artists. Using industry-leading Autodesk Maya running on high-end Mac Pro workstations, students will learn the basics of modeling and proceed through UV layout, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting and final render.
The history of traditional animation and visual effects puts modern computer animation techniques in a larger historical context. You could make it as a director, compositor, layout artist 2D drawn, or 2D or 3D computer animation , lighting technical director, production designer, storyboard artist—the list goes on. Students critique, refine, and improve the resulting animations. This is an introductory course for younger students who want to learn to build simple video games. This beginner class focuses primarily on 3D computer modeling and animation using the free software, Anim8or, to create castle models that move and perform actions. You can participate in live classes from the comfort of your home! Students will be encouraged to produce material that can take virtually any form, from experimental shorts to feature-length projects.
