Enabling students to make computer animation, introduction to the basic concepts and methods for animation generation.
To apply acquired knowledge in the further educational process, as well as in the future professional work.
Animation principles: compress and stretch, prediction, setting the scene, from pose to pose, overlapping action, acceleration and deceleration of action, movement along the give path, secondary action, timing, exaggeration, drawing solids, quaintness of the character. Character development, outside shape and silhouette, structure, personality, expression of emotions, action. Storyboarding, presentation, production. Animation techniques: Key frame interpolation and parameter curves. Linear interpolation, interpolation along the curve, interpolation of shape, interpolation of attributes and model characteristics. Forward kinematics. Inverse kinematics. Video camera animation. Position, orientation, motion Parallax, video camera movement along the curve, focal length, camera zoom, depth of field. Light animation, natural phenomena. Dynamic simulations, physical properties of objects, physical force. Face animation, presentation of different facial expressions, and presentation of feelings. Retouching the image, composition, and color gradation. Image resolution, output format.
