This entry is just a quick note. Since this blog is largely dedicated to advanced Web and media applications, I thought folks might be interested in this.
I teach database systems and 3D animation at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Twice a week, I post the videos of my introductory animation class on a website. The videos are screen and audio capture. I try to introduce the basics of 3D animation, with a focus on Autodesk Maya, arguably the most popular 3D application. The semester is just getting started and so I have only posted two videos so far.
Please keep in mind that I am teaching students from a very broad range of academic majors, with many of them being computer science and engineering students – and so the slant is on learning 3D animation as a basic skill. It is not a fine arts class.
