    This unit provides students who have little or no prior knowledge of 3D with a practical introduction to the principles of producing and evaluating digital 3D graphics for real-time (interactive) and pre-rendered imaging and animation. Through a series of practical lab sessions students will learn the fundamental techniques used in the creation of 3D models, animating in 3D and rendering. Through lectures, guided enquiry and online materials students will also develop an appreciation of the forms, theory and applications of 3D in entertainment and simulation.

    Learning Outcomes


    1. demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and principles of 3D graphics and animation

    2. be able to critically analyse applications of 3D in a range of media

    3. synthesise 3D models, textures and animations for real-time and pre-rendered use

    4. construct a simple animated scene in 3D using lighting and rendering techniques

    5. work in small teams to produce creative 3D materials

    6. be able to synthesise these skills to produce short creative works
