DIS4201 - 3D animation and virtual space
6 points, SCA Band 1, 0.125 EFTSL
Postgraduate Faculty of Art and Design
Caulfield First semester 2008 (Day)
This unit introduces students to the methods and processes involved in creating 3D elements, objects and spaces using a computer and specialist software. The key areas of modelling, rendering and animation will be examined, and various methods of output demonstrated. Different applications of CGI (computer generated imagery), such as motion graphics, character animation and virtual environments are discussed. 3D models will be used to generate movement which involves understanding key sequences, framing and inbetweening.
On successful completion of this unit, students will:
12 hours per week including: 2 lecture hours, 2 studio hours and 8 independent study hours
