They will apply the 12 principles of animation and learn software concepts such as keyframing, viewports, and playblast. 3D art is a complex topic that can take months or years to learn, and this is the perfect first step into becoming a 3D artist! Don’t miss out!

 

OBJECTIVES (Camp Highlights)
 

  • Pan, zoom, rotate and maneuver in Maya’s 3D Environment

  • Collapse, extrude, multi-cut, and transform polygons to build 3D Models

  • Paint UV’s with Adobe Photoshop

  • Use Maya’s time slider and channel box to control playback range, keyframes, breakdowns, and attribute values 

  • Render high-quality images with digital lighting setups using the Arnold Renderer software

 
FINAL PROJECT
Students will create 3D Art that will be modeled, painted, animated and rendered following a professional CG production pipeline.
