Do you ever wonder how movie studios make dinosaurs or monsters come to life? Do you think about designing the massive worlds, tools, and characters of your favorite e-games? If you have—this is the class for you! The course will allow students to develop design skills used in 3D animation, game design and 3D visualization. 3DS MAX will serve as the primary software program. Students will learn additional 3D software programs as time permits. Students will also create 3D modeling, animation, and architectural 3D design projects, including lighting, materials and bone systems. Every student will have an opportunity to advance personal and professional skills through participation in SkillsUSA.
