Course will expand upon the skills and concepts introduced in Computer Animation I. Using Alias/Wavefront’s Maya computer animation software, students will be introduced to advanced concepts and techniques using inverse kinematics/forward kinematics, dynamics, and simulations. Using MEL scripts for animation will also be covered. A series of short exercises will ensure that students understand these skills and techniques as the class progresses. A final project will encourage students to exhibit these acquired skills.
