A peak into the world of animation & visual effects.
I am very excited to announce that, due to popular demand, CG Masters has added a new animation & VFX training program called “3D Foundations”. This short program was developed around discussions with hundreds of potential students who we met at events and trade shows or who just stopped by the school. Many people, we found, either were not sure this industry is for them or had little to no computer graphics experience.
Many people we spoke with didn’t even have a firm grasp of what visual effects is. It is for these reasons that we have attempted to fill the gap with a great new set of introductory courses especially for those people.
For some, it may lead them into further training and an exciting, creative and rewarding career. But equally as important, others will choose a different path without having spent their entire education budget.
The new program exposes students to many different aspects of animation and visual effects over a 12-week period. It will provide them with understanding of the various tools and techniques used to create animation and visual effects
One of the coolest features of the new program is that any student who decides they want to go further into the one-year 3D Animation and VFX Production training program can get half of their 3d Foundations tuition applied toward it.
Among the topics covered, students will learn to:
- build and UV basic 3D models
- develop basic animation rigs
- use animation tools to make objects move in a scene
- create basic textures, shaders and lighting
- composite images using Nuke
- use Photoshop
- shoot properly exposed photographs
- shoot properly exposed footage
- render 3D images
- create simple dynamic FX
