3D Animation

Are Pixar and Dreamworks movies frequently watched or talked about in your home? Campers can use software such as Mudbox and Maya to create amazing 3D projects. Campers create 3D characters using Mudbox, a 3D sculpting software, which allows campers to model and paint anything in 3D, while also familiarizing them with working in a 3D environment.

Once campers are comfortable with working in 3D they can bring their projects into Maya which allows them to place their creations in a 3D scene of their creation. Campers may rig their own models in order to make them animated, or use one of a wide variety of professional character and vehicle rigs to create 3D animations. In addition, 3D animation will also include the option to explore 3D printing to bring to life models campers have created!

Campers must choose to participate in either 2D or 3D animation.
