Introduction to 3D Modeling
Advisory: ART 320 and 370 with grades of "C" or better
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 36 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB
This course introduces computer-generated three-dimensional, or CG 3D, modeling using industry standard software. The primary focus of this course is modeling using polygons, surfaces, and curves to produce quality demo reel renders of the models. Objects range from simplistic primitive shapes to sophisticated models of animals and plants. Software application tools, such as Autodesk Maya and Pixologic Zbrush, are applied to produce content for use in 3D printing, film, game, fine art, broadcast, medical and industrial animation, and more.
