Welcome to the Animation section of The Studio, where animated
ideas become reality. SIGGRAPH 2001 attendees of all skill
levels are invited to sign up to use the latest off-the-shelf,
commercial animation software to develop, create, or refine
2D and 3D ideas, concepts, and data into living, breathing
animation. The general interface, workflow, and creation tools
are covered in hands-on sessions in The Studio and in interactive
tutorial presentations in The Studio Tutorial Theater throughout
Interact with the experienced Studio staff to create animation
of any style, using any available techniques to achieve them.
If you are new to animation in the computer realm, our staff
will assist with introduction to the concepts of modeling,
texturing, lighting, and application of the basic principles
of animation. Seasoned animators, technical directors, and
other computer graphics professionals are also invited to
participate in this unique, collaborative environment.
Each participant can go through the steps of generating key
frame and procedural animation to bring their creatures, characters,
props, and other scene elements to life. Scene optimization
and rendering techniques are also discussed, to ensure
efficient rendering for output to CD-ROM or flipbook.
