Course Outcomes: 

Scripting Skills

Students will be able to code in animation environments, using both Python and Houdini, build procedural environments and animate parameters using scripting expressions, and procedurally build intricate systems of models, rigs, and animation through basic coding and node-based scripting skills.

Increased Efficiency in Animation

Students will be able to efficiently create both simple and complex effects with less effort as well as automate modeling, rigging, and animation processes so that intricate animation systems can be completed in a practical, timely manner.
