82520 Context: Design for 3D and 2D Hybrid Animation

6cp; 3hpw (laboratory session)
Requisite(s): 82420 3D Modelling and Rigging Advanced
These requisites may not apply to students in certain courses.
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject introduces students to pre-production processes including lighting, staging, texturing and rendering for 2D hybrid and 3D computer animation. The subject expands on the skills and techniques introduced in 82420 3D Modelling and Rigging Advanced, exploring hybrid production techniques including flat, photographed and 3D-generated imagery.

The subject provides students with a further understanding of the design and production of animation using industry-standard software and work practices. Students are expected to understand broad design processes in the production of 2D traditional, stop motion and 3D animation.

Students can choose to focus on hybrid craft techniques or 3D craft techniques. In both streams, students gain knowledge of relevant software, demonstrate design and production solutions, and develop creative responses to the problems and tasks presented in class.
