Multimedia and animation are important parts of the entertainment, design and IT industries. Computer-aided animation, special effects, lighting, spatial relationships and 3D-model construction all fall within the role animation plays in today's multimedia and digital content creation. This course emphasises the design and implementation of 2D and 3D-animation for a wide variety of multimedia products. The outcome of the course is the production and implementation of a variety of animations and models into multimedia and digital content projects.
On completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. Design and create animation using computerised animation tools.
2. Design and create 2D and 3D-models.
3. Include animation into digital content and multimedia products.
