TECH TALK: 3D ANIMATION – DON’T FORGET TRADITION
THURSDAY, MAY 26, 6:30 P.M.

Animating a 3D object can be a technical and mathematical process which can easily end up looking robotic and unrealistic.  Oddly enough, the way to avoid that is to implement traditional animation principles that were created in the 1930’s into your 3D animation workflow.  Join us as Juan Rivera, Graphic Design instructor for the Melrose Center, talks about how traditional animation principles helped increase the realism of an animated short he helped create.
