82027 Context: Design for 3D and Hybrid Animation

6cp; 3 hpw (laboratory session)
Requisite(s): 82420 Context: Animation Character Rigging Advanced



This subject introduces students to pre-production processes applying lighting, staging, texturing and rendering for 3D computer animation. Modern animation production requires an appreciation of hybrid digital techniques rather than simply one set of craft skills. The subject aims to examine the creation and integration of 3D animation in a matrix of production pathways and codependencies, including photographed and drawn imagery. The subject expands upon the skills and techniques introduced in 82420 Context: Animation Character Rigging Advanced, exploring hybrid production techniques including integration of drawn, photographed and 3D-generated imagery.

The subject builds 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 animation, physicalanimation, photography, cinematography and 3D animation.
Students develop 3D digital and hybrid techniques and gain knowledge of relevant software, demonstrate design and production solutions, and develop creative responses to the problems and tasks presented in class.
