Computer Animation

Computer Animation is used for the web, games and other software. 3D graphics are used more and more but only 2D are required for this unit.

As with all computer applications you must first identify the need, specific requirements and constraints before building the solution.

We plan to use Macromedia Flash as our main development tool but we will also experiment with Blender and other design packages.

On completion of this you should:

1 Understand the origins and types of animation

2 Be able to use software techniques used in animation

3 Be able to plan, create and review an animation using digital methods.
