Constructing Virtual Worlds (2674QCA)

This course explores the power of motion, in the form of animation in three-dimensional spatial environments, as a tool in presenting both information and narrative for human viewers. The principals of the human sensory system are covered to gain an understanding of how movement, and animation, can be used to enhance the ability to convey knowledge, immersion and understanding to the viewer. Students will gain both a theoretical understanding of the history, principals, mechanics and human interpretation of motion & animation, and will also gain practical skills in the production and presentation of 3D animated content.
