Course content

Course Content 

Within the Modelling and Animation pathway you will be encouraged to develop specific talents in one of two areas, Motion Capture or 3D Character Design, as well as to develop a high level of creativity through a major piece of project work.

The Motion Capture route will familiarise you with the different techniques for mocap and their application as well as understanding the manipulation of mocap data and movement theory and the ways in which mocap integrates with key frame and procedural animation. You will experience the practicalities of running your own mocap session with professional actors.

The Character Design route will develop your ability to apply anatomical knowledge to 3D character models as well as creating extra depth to characters with back-stories and the use of silhouettes as emotive triggers - important principles for character designers. You will use the most current techniques for converting character ideas into fully animatable characters including digital sculpting, retopology, photogrammetry and 3D scanning.
