Introduction to 3D Animation

This class, taken during the first semester following admittance into the program, is a general introduction to the principles of animation as it applies in 3D space. The first assignment is to animate a simple lego character to get a general feel for the animation process in Maya. The second assignment is to perform a lip-sync test to any chosen clip of audio. The third and final assignment is to model and rig a character and make a short animation with that character.
