RelianceEdu – Advanced Program in Animation
Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and change. It is one of the most effective forms of communication and finds proific use in advertisements, films, socio-documentaries, education, product demos etc. The Indian Animation industry has seen unprecedented growth and is expected to scale newer heights going forward.
The specialization suite allows them to leverage their core abilities and acquire advanced skills in the specialization subject of their choice.
Course Module: The course structure is divided into 3 parts
- Core - 3D Animation
- Compositing, Editing & Showreel (Optional)
Course Duration: The duration for the program is approximately 28 months. Each module takes 10 months (approx) to complete.
Course Eligibility: Students completed (awaiting result) 10th or above are eligible for this program.
The Foundation layer forms the base of the 3D animation production life cycle. This layer gives an answer to the question “What needs to be done?” in order to bring concepts to life.
Here is where the students learn how to prepare and equip their minds in the visual story telling medium before entering the core layer of the 3D world of animation.
- Creating Images - Basics
- Sketching Essentials
- Creating Images - Intermediate
- Pre Production
- Color Key & Matte Painting
- Script to Screen
At the end of the Foundation layer the student is equipped with the knowledge of applying various conventional and digital techniques in order to enter the core layer of 3D Animation.
This layer is the heart of the 3D Animation program. This layer gives an answer to the question “How do I bring my concepts to life?”
The student moves ahead from what he has learnt in the Foundation Layer and now introduces the 3rd Dimension to his visuals.
- 3D Modeling
- 3D Shading & Texturing
- 3D Lighting and Rendering
- Environmental 3D Modeling
3D Character Development
- Creating 3D Character
- 3D Digital Sculpting
- 3D Digital Shading & Texturing
- Advanced 3D Texturing & Painting
- Character Look Development
- Character Rendering using VRay
- Ray Tracing Renderer
3D Animation & Effects
- Character Rigging
- Character Animation
- Hair, Fur, Cloth
- 3D VFX Dynamics & Particles
- 3D VFX Fluid Simulation
The student is now able to create 3D Asset and Character Models, texture them, give depth by adding light and shade, rig and animate them, apply special effects such as flowing water, fiery blasts, smoke & rainfall, thus bringing their imagination on to the digital platform.
Students now have the option to move ahead and create 3D Animation films where they fine tune their post production skills. They composite the work they have done till now, edit it and blend in audio to create the final output.
Students also create a showreel of their work which serves as a showcase of all their learning from concepts to the final composite.
This showreel then becomes a powerful tool for students to demonstrate their skills.
- Layer Based Compositing
- Node Based Compositing
- Audio Editing
- Video Editing
- Final Showreel
The students learn how to integrate all the skills they have learnt from traditional techniques, 3D Asset, Character creation, Animation and Special Effects into the final composited look.>
Students experience the dynamics of the 3D Animation workflow ( Pre-Prod-Post) through the creation of their final Show Reel.
The showreel becomes a stunning testimony to the students' skills of translating their imagination into an impactful and impressive 3D creation.
