Professional Animation course 3D
In movies, TV, video or video games, character animation is rife and the use of tools to characterize 3D grows exponentially. Golum, minions, characters from Pixar, are some examples. The industry needs skilled animators to meet the growing demand for projects. To train the best leaders in the region, at Image Campus we developed a specialized training course in animation 3D.
What do you learn?
- Handle with ease the most important tools used Autodesk Maya for animation.
- Understand key concepts such as timelines, keys, curves, constraints and bones, among others.
- Understand and apply specific practices on environment 3D most relevant principles popularized by Walt Disney animation.
- Knowing the mechanics of forces affecting the movement of a character, fundamental in encouraging plausibly be of domestic origin (mood, specific poses, etc.) or external (such as the law of gravity or wind).
- Characterize, move and act human 3D characters realistically and in cartoon style, pointing out issues such as bipedal locomotion, body language and emotions, facial animation and lip sync (movement and audio).
- Study the main characteristics of interaction between two or more characters, character-object interaction, and how to solve shots with more than one character.
- Encourage fantasy characters and animals.
- realistic animation
- animation cartoon
- Anthropomorphic object animation
- Animation using motion capture systems

Areas of specialization of a 3D animator
An animator has the ability to "give life" to any object or character revealing their thoughts and emotions through body language, facial and voice. To achieve this must have knowledge about how things move in the real world concepts such as weight, balance and strength are key in encouraging. It should also become an actor or a "puppeteer" behind the character 3D order to convey what goes through your mind at any time in history.
This career path was designed with the idea of training the best character animators 3D the country to feed a market that demands more and more specialists in this field. To do this, the "principles of animation" cornerstone of traditional animation will be studied; It will delve into the mechanics of movement and physiology of the human body to understand how in the most varied situations we move. Complementary to the techniques of digital performance, have a theater workshop especially focused on animation for you to know the methods used by actors and mimes to play a role.
In this way you will know well how to work with professional systems capture movement, resource increasingly used in productions with limited time, or encourage unrealistic complex movements to reproduce manually. Finally, you will learn all about the industry and the workforce currently offering this specialty, and as a final project will create an animated reel for your personal piece.
