Character Animation 1

This course introduces students to 3D character animation using Autodesk Maya. The twelve principles of animation will be used to help students develop strong 3D character animation skills in Maya, while gaining exposure to animation rigs and powerful tools like the Graph Editor. Assignments such as executing a bouncing ball, walk and jump cycles, and an introduction to rigging will be taught. Production workflows and techniques are learned through lectures, demonstrations, and weekly at-home homework exercises. Students will cement core animation skills which build in complexity over the course of the class, culminating in a final project for critique and review.
