In this subject, students explore and apply the knowledge, skills and resources required to develop and execute realtime animation projects using relevant software and resources. The term ‘realtime animation’ refers to the use of 3D game engines in the creation of animations for the screen and/or games. Apart from animation and games, realtime animation tools and techniques are being applied in an increasingly diverse range of areas such as architecture and construction, digital fashion, manufacturing and health sciences and beyond.

In the subject, students use industry standard realtime game engines and associated technologies and tools to create animations. They develop and use digital assets such as environments and props, characters and apply processes such as modelling, rigging, blocking, layout, motion and facial capture, animation and postproduction.
