Animation and Rendering

Cost: $700.00

Animation and rendering provide a powerful way for artists, engineers, architects, and product designers to present their ideas visually. In this 8-week course, students will learn to create animation using a variety of 3D modeling software applications. Students will learn various techniques to animate their designs, as well as several post-production skills. Topics covered will include designing flythrough animations, collages and visual effects in Adobe After Effects and exploded animations using the software Fusion 360. This hands-on course will provide students with enough time to practice exercises during class.

No prior knowledge of 3D modeling software is required for the course, although students with prior experience are encouraged to apply. In this class students will use software programs including Rhinoceros, V-Ray, Blender, Autodesk Fusion 360, and Adobe After Effects. Free trial versions are available online.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
