This course teaches students to model complex assets such as vehicles, robots, and weapons. Lectures focus on the use of polygonal modeling tools in the development of form and detail, as well as production-specific issues pertaining to poly count, surface quality, and topology. Over the term, students become familiar with the techniques used to create high-quality hard surface models efficiently. Classes cover different modeling techniques from box modeling to sculpting and resurfacing. Students will complete two production quality models over the course of the term.
Note: Online courses are only available to residents of California and those residing outside of the United States.
