Organization

Computeranimation VU consists of a lecture and an exercise part. The lectures are spread over the semester and take place in the Seminarraum 186, on the 5th floor in Favoritenstrasse 9-11. The lectures are frontal presentations describing computer animation concepts, closely following the computer animation textbook Computer Animation (Third Edition) by Rick Parent. The course will be held in English. There will be no standard exam at the end of the samester, this year we will schedule a small recapitulation written exam at the beginning of each lecture testing the knowledge gained from the previous lecture. The exercise part consists of an implementation of four computer animation techniques. On this page you can find all important information and dates concerning the course. Registration to the course should be done via the TISS interface.

The lectures will be recorded and uploaded to the TUWEL.
