ANIM 355: Advanced Rigging & Dynamics

3 credit hours

Prerequisite: Candidacy in Animation Program.
This course builds on the foundational skills students have already mastered and explores more complex rigging techniques and how to apply dynamics such as collisions and fluids. Mechanical and organic rigs, ‘hard body’ and ‘soft body’ will be covered. Students will research, analyze, and design fully functional and physically accurate rigs for both mechanical and organic models. Students will produce 2-4 projects.
