Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and change. By means of the rapid display of a sequence of static image that minimally differ from each other. Animation is a simulation of movement created by displaying a series of pictures or frames. Cartoon is one example of the animation. Animation on computer is one of the chief ingredients of multimedia presentations. There are many software applications like Autodesk 3D Max, Autodesk Maya, Maxon Cinema 4D, etc. that enable you to create animations that you can display on a computer monitor.
Animation is an art form created and cultivated over the last century. While drawing, painting, sculpting and photography allow artist to represent shape and form at a single point time, animation lets artists explorer a world in motion. Though animation, new worlds can be imagined. This modern art form evokes emotion through the movement of a sequence of drawings, paintings, photographs or rendered images.
This beginning animation course exposes students to the range of traditional and digital techniques used in stop-motion, claymation, 2-D or 3-D computer animation. Students learn basic theory and mechanics behind animation develop observational and drawing skills and study the fundamental principles of character design, layout and storyboarding.
Through lectures, demonstrations and hands-on exercises, animation students learn squash and stretch, follow-through, key framing and overlap techniques while creating their own short animation projects. This is one of the first classes future animators take to learn basic animation skills.
Storyboarding for Animation
Animation is designed on storyboards. Students learn basic animation theory and mechanics, develop observational and drawing skills and study the fundamental principles of character design, layout and storyboarding in this class. Storyboards are created for each animated character and a rough version of the animation is put together. This practice is called animatics.
Specialized software, such as Studio-Max and Autodesk Maya, are used to create 3-dimensional images for animations. Much of this class is spent becoming familiar with the software and creating short 3-dimensional animations used for film or video games. Students should complete 2-dimensional animation course before taking this course.
Creating animations that are synthesized on the computer is the focus of this course. Computer generated lighting and backgrounds are used with original characters developed by students. Computer animation production techniques are used to create a short animation project.
Animation Throughout History
In this course, students learn how styles and techniques in animation have changed over time. Reviewing animation from the first animated films to present feature length animations gives student perspective on this rapidly changing art form. This is an elective course.
Any Student Who had pass 10th , 12th , degree or equivalent couse.
