3D Modelling and Animation
This module aims to provide a solid foundation in the processes and procedures involved in 3D modelling and animation for creating digital media.
The module prepares students for activities involving the design, development, and testing of modelling, rendering, and animation solutions to a broad variety of areas including science, engineering and entertainment.
Critically appraise, discuss, and reflect upon technologies, techniques and algorithms for the acquisition, generation, manipulation, presentation, storage and communication of various types of visual data
Demonstrate familiarity with principles and practise of computer graphics from their mathematical foundations to the modern applications domains of scientific visualisation, virtual reality, computer games and film animation
Demonstrate proficiency in modelling of objects, characters, scenes and game assets
Demonstrate skills in shading, lighting and texturing
Demonstrate a trajectory of ability in implementing basic to advanced animation concepts and techniques
Demonstrate motion capture: motion cycles, interpolation and creation of realistic motion states
Implement and critically appraise rendering techniques: image and animation processing, compression, typography
