INTD 0216 / FMMC 0216 - 3D Environment Design      

3D Environment Design
From the grounds of an ancient ruin to the inside of a biological cell to the stage of a theatrical production to the corridors of the international space station, in this course we will use digital 3d modeling, texturing, and lighting tools to visualize locations into beautifully rendered, three dimensional, interactive virtual environments. We will ask critical questions about how every design choice affects the audience’s understanding of the space. No prior experience is necessary for this hands-on introductory course. (Not open to seniors or students who have taken INTD/FMMC 0215) 3 hrs. lect/lab. ART
