Late summer camp spots still available

Camp Yokey’s 3D animation class which runs several times throughout the summer has been a hit with the kids and really fun! There are spots in some of our camp sessions still remaining, sign up at http://www.CampYokey.com

During our week long summer course we covered various topics relating to 3D software and design. We introduced the campers to a program called Cinema 4D. We covered how to

● navigate the user interface

● build a scene with basic polygonal figures

● keyframing animations

The campers left feeling very excited after rendering their first scene! We learned how to download 3D assets and import them into a scene. We also covered

● texturing with diffuse, normal and bump maps

● how to mimic water using shaders and simulating liquids

● terrains and grass

● creating custom 3D humanoid characters Campers added 3D assets until their scene began to look like a cohesive environment. We also covered

● creating custom materials for scene objects

● utilizing motion capture data.

● Test rendering animations

After brainstorming throughout the week, campers continued structuring the environments in which the final animations would take place.

● Began working on final projects

● Imported animated characters with mixamo

The campers worked diligently to finalize their projects! Each of them created their own unique world with custom characters. They also included a song of their choice to use in their final video which the campers got to take home.
