Animation is one thing that attracts people of all age. Apart from using it for entertainment, animation is widely used in education to show how things work, and in various other fields like Medicine, Advertisement, Design, Gaming, and so on. With animations takings its role in various fields, the opportunities in this field have grown rapidly.
Knowing about such rapidly growing opportunities and being an instigator in the field of Digital education, IMAGE has designed the Diploma program in 3D Animation. Backed by more than 17 years of pioneering industry presence and thorough understanding of the Digital Media market, the program is designed to meet the industry needs at its best. The program encapsulates all the subjects that aid to be a successful animator; which includes Visual Designing that stimulate the student's creativity and imagination, Graphic Designing that aid in creating effective visual communication; Web Designing that helps master the art of effectively communicating to the global audience through a Website, 3D Designing that helps master the 3D concepts like modeling, texturing, lighting, camera, animation, and rendering; Digital Video Editing that enables the students to make a rough cut of their 3D works and apply interesting transitions and video effects; 2D animation that aid in understanding animation principles and advanced 3D specialization concepts.
The Diploma course in 3D Animation can be taken up as a 20 or 10 months course, based on the students' requirements. The course prepares the students to choose a career in various fields that uses 3D animation, like movies, television, advertisements, product demos, computer-based training, web-based training, interior designing, computer/mobile game development, medical simulations and educational institutions. By completing this course successfully, the students can enter into the world of animations as a Game Level Designer, 3D Animator, 3D Modeler, Character Designer, Rigger, Lighting & Texturing Artist, and Layout & Background Artist.
Graphic Design is a comprehensive module that trains in creating effective visual communication. The exhaustive curriculum incorporates visualization, concept development, design techniques and composition through design case studies and hands-on exercises. The module provides specialization in areas such as layout, illustration, print-based graphics and digital graphics.
Visual Design is an extensive hands-on foundation module in Digital Visual Art & Design, aimed to stimulate the student's creativity and imagination. Through Art & Design assignments, students master how to make aesthetic and practical design decisions. Also they learn about the diverse roles and functions of design elements in present-day life and their applications in Digital Visual Media.
Web Design is a Web-focused module that helps master the art and skill of effectively communicating to global audience through a Website. The project-based curriculum covers all aspects of creating an effective site including interactive design and interface design. Comprehensive coverage extends from basic to advanced content creation for optimal Web delivery.
3D Design provides a foundation to the understanding of 3D concepts like modeling, texturing, lighting, camera, animation & rendering in a simplified manner. The module is innovative, project focused and encourages teamwork, planning and thoughtful execution of 3D project. The Media Animation project taught in this module serves as a strong foundation for aspiring 3D Modelers, Texture Artists, Visual Effects Artists, Character Animators and prepares them to cope with the Specialization modules to be taught in the later part of the Diploma program.
Digital Video Editing adds interest and variety to the Diploma. The module enables the students to make a rough cut of their 3D and Visual FX works, and apply interesting transitions and video effects. Students learn video capturing, professional video-editing techniques like 3-point editing, synchronize audio and video, apply filters and output the edited video to various file formats.
The specialization modules train students in 3D digital modeling techniques which include Inorganic and Organic Modeling and Texturing methods using NURBS, Polygons and Sub-D Surfaces. A series of practical exercises guide students through the process of creating and generating an animation. Added to it, the students will also learn to light 3D environments, setup shading networks and render scenes\images.
