ART 4465 - Digital Visual Effects

This class gives students the opportunity to collect digital materials together in order to create compelling visual experiences, primarily using the digital studio environments of Adobe After Effects (for 2D and 2.5D) and Blender (for 3D). Students will build on the idea of collage, or placing items or actions in novel circumstances in order to register new experiences. Students will learn the practice of digital compositing, through which digital artists can combine different still and moving images to create new virtual/visual realities. Often collectively referred to as “CGI” (Computer-generated imagery) and “FX” (Special Effects) the techniques learned in this class are used to create and/or contribute to images in art, printed media, courtroom presentations, video games, medical/scientific imaging, and simulators.

Prerequisite: ART 3453 with a grade of C or higher
