3D Animation Training Course

The 3D animation course is targeted on developing participant’s animation skills. It focuses on the 12 principles of animation to demonstrate a solid understanding of weight, timing, spacing, etc.

This course provides skill development in 3D modeling and rendering techniques using lighting, staging, and special effects for digital output.

There is emphasis on the production of three-dimensional (3D) animation as final digital outputting using modeling, rendering and animation software.
