DIGM12-200: Animation and Prototyping

Description

Animation and Prototyping introduces students to the fundamentals of 3D modelling, texturing, rendering and applied principles of animation to create digital prototypes. Students will learn to communicate their ideas through traditional and cutting edge visualization pipelines, including images, video, 3D printing, and emerging technologies. Students will apply their knowledge using industry-standard digital creation tools including, Autodesk, Adobe Creative Suite and Unity to produce their own prototypes and present their creative ideas.
