Synopsis

This unit introduces students to time-based imaging for 3D design and imaging. It develops sequentially upon the skills and knowledge of 3D imaging by providing a focus upon advanced asset creation and animation. Students are introduced to the range of options and controls available through 3D imaging and modeling software applications, towards skillfully creating, manipulating and animating 3D objects, manipulating camera properties and viewer perspectives. Demonstrations and lectures are given on conceiving, designing and producing animation sequences for inclusion into multimedia presentations with consideration for delivery methods and the merits of different media types and formats.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. design and develop defined 3D models with application for animation
  2. skilfully create and manipulate 3D objects within a changing environment utilising light and atmospheric conditions
  3. explore the range of options and controls available through 3D imaging and modeling software applications
  4. experiment with surface qualities to enhance the 3D appearance of the created object
  5. understand and manipulate camera properties and viewer perspectives
  6. prepare animation sequences for inclusion into multimedia presentations with consideration for delivery methods and the merits of media types and formats
  7. understand and be able to apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the unit of study.
