VCT 1147 - Modeling 1

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture 3 Lab None
Course Description: This course will focus on modeling and texturing techniques and solidifying the student¿s skills in these areas. This course will build on the basics of polygonal modeling, UV Mapping, and go in depth on topics such as 2D and 3D painting techniques, normal mapping and the application of shaders.  Students will gain practice by creating a variety of different types of models and understand the differences between good and bad topology within the industry.
MnTC Goals

Prerequisite(s): VCT 1141  and VCT 1143  with grades of C or higher.
Corequisite(s): None
Recommendation: VCT 1018  and basic computer skills.
