  • Overview

    3D Virtual Environments are continuing to be adopted by a wide range of industries providing artists with many more creative outlets and employment opportunities. By learning how to apply their 3D skills to the development of a virtual environment, students are making themselves more versatile as future animators, designers and creative practitioners. This unit builds on the fundamental skills developed in the prerequisite unit (Real-Time 3D Computer Graphics) allowing students to develop a major work for public exhibition.


    Learning Outcomes
    On completion of this unit students should be able to:
    1. Analyse and determine production requirements in response to a project brief
    2. Use real-time 3D technologies to pre-visualise and communicate to peers the intended creative response to a project brief
    3. Utilise the principles and techniques of real-time production for the purpose of constructing a virtual environment
    4. Design and construct 3D virtual environments suitable for use in a virtual production shot or sequence
