ANI 378: 3D Dynamics

This course will provide an introduction to dynamic simulation and effects in 3D animation. Topics to be covered include hair & fur, fluid dynamics, smoke & fire, particles and cloth. An emphasis will be placed on how these effects can enhance an idea or narrative, establish mood, or even be used as a basis for experimental animation. Students will use traditional animation and visual design principles as a basis for creating several small projects. PREREQUISITE(S): ANI 230 and ANI 231
