The 3D animation and visual effects diploma is an exhaustive curriculum aimed to prepare students for the demands of careers in the cutting-edge 3D animation and visual effects disciplines. Animation and visual effects are no longer restricted to feature films but are also widely used in Engineering, television, web content, performing arts and corporate communications. The students learn the fundamentals of art, design, 3D and visual effects, and then apply this knowledge to 3D modeling, character animation, motion capture, character rigging, texture and lighting, and compositing.
An industry appropriate student experience is provided through industry standard software and state of the art labs that boast a one to one (student to machine) ratio.
The program begins by introducing the fundamental of art and design for effective visual communication. The digital design module builds on the fundamentals and enables the students to create effective visual communication for print and web media. The later modules expose the students to the process of creating visually rich animation and integrating live and computer generated imageries.
The course further extends their knowledge with the project development that combines idea generation, production process and advanced CG techniques like 3D objects, particles, effects and camera tracking.
Graphic Design is a comprehensive design curriculum for 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 curriculum that helps master the art and skill of effectively communicating to a 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.
