Seminar description

Students will be familiarized with such techniques--relevant to the expanded field of animation--as motion capture, 3D scanning, augmented and virtual reality, interaction, character automation and other creative AI techniques. These artistic - technical focus areas are essential in addressing an array of resounding issues weighing on the whole field of computer graphics: (1.) Dilemma between representing real and signifying it. Specifically, when it is necessary, fruitful or appropriate to strive for a hyper-real mode of representation and when usage of stylized graphic language is more effective. (2.) Neural networks, deep learning and its feasibility and narrative implications in creation of autonomous animated agents (3.) Orientation-disorientation in VR. Navigation in 3D space (4.) An “uncanny valley” (UV) phenomenon plaguing 3D animation since introduction of powerful reality-mimicking methodology. UV is not only a result of hyper-realistic humanoid design but also a problem of recreating the human-like locomotion. (5.) VR as an extended collaborative framework. (6.) Forensic design. Effect of evidence-based scanning on content creation.
