GMD311 Web Video Fundamentals with Lab
Students in this course learn to enhance web presentations through video and audio integration. Technical aspects such as linking files, streaming media, and embedded video are covered.
GMD341 Advanced Imaging with Lab
This course explores advanced techniques for achieving sophisticated visual designs and imagery. Students learn to actualize designs and maximize creative capabilities through use of software such as Adobe Creative Suite. Students also learn techniques to streamline workflow in large projects.
GMD371 Advanced Illustration with Lab
Students in this project-based course learn advanced drawing and line art techniques, including advanced vector-based illustration. Blending tools, gradients, transparency, and various effects are explored. Web illustrations and animations are developed using vector art and common multimedia tools in an integrated development environment.
GMD411 3D Model Design and Construction with Lab
This course focuses on design and construction of spline models suitable for ray-traced illustration, rendered video and print. Students learn a managed approach to model construction, working from concept sketches to completely articulated models in demonstration projects that emphasize reusability of constructed assets.
GMD451 Animation with Lab
This course targets the pre-production and production phases of animation design. Students learn to synthesize elements of an animated movie into a storyboard for production. Employing classical animation studio techniques, animations are optimized for digital production environments and delivery using common multimedia tools in an integrated development environment.
