To train the student to use 3D software and create titling, modeling, walkthrough, and product animation. In addition, students will learn about basic lighting, texturing, rigging and key frame animation.
At the end of the course, learners will be able to:
CO1: Understanding character modeling
CO2: Understanding texturing and shading
CO3: Understanding lights, camera and materials
CO4: Understanding 3D character animation
CO5: Gain knowledge about rendering and compositing
