CSE 490 J - Character Animation

This course is offered to the Animation Capstone Students. Students use simple 3D models and animate them to learn basic character animation exercises starting with basic actions like walks, runs, pushes, pulls, etc followed by acting exercises including lip sync and facial expression. Students will complete weekly tutorials followed with exercises of their own design. The final project in the course will consist of the design and execution for motion related to several "signature" shots for the capstone film and start with the planning drawings and reference video to the completion of the shots including completed renders.
