23: Motion Dynamics Animation Workshop

Monday, Half Day, 1:30 - 5 pm
Location: CAL

This hands-on workshop introduces animators to the principles and techniques of motion-dynamics animation. Participants use workstations running Maya to understand the principles and apply them to a short animation project. A team of experienced animation assistants provides assistance.

Familiarity with the basic concepts and practice of 3D computer animation. Experience with motion dynamics or Maya software is not required.

The principles and practice of motion-dynamics simulations. Physical properties of objects, forces, collisions, rigid bodies and soft bodies, springs, and goal objects. Playback issues. Combining keyframed animation with motion-dynamics simulations.
