New Summer Course Offering

ATLS 3519-310/311: Intro to 3D Modeling & Animation - Session C - Focus Elective

In Intro to 3D Modeling & Animation, we'll create fully textured and lit 3D models as well as cover the fundamentals of rigging and animation so you can author and own a polished 6 second animation.

Intro to 3D is a great springboard for topics as broad as game engines like UDK and Unity, design, film, and VFX or 3D Printing. Do you want to know the fundamentals so you can move into any other topic in 3D? Don't fear the interface. Make the interface fear you!
