Hot News

In the summer semester 2022, all lectures will be held online!

Please enroll through TISS and follow the TUWEL page for up-to-date news!

If you have any further questions, please contact Renata Raidou (rraidou@cg.tuwien.ac.at).

Organization

Computeranimation VU consists of lectures (with quizzes), exercises, and a small project.

  • The lectures are spread over the semester and will take place on zoom (links to the online classes can be accessed through the TUWEL page). The lectures are frontal presentations describing computer animation concepts, closely following the computer animation textbook Computer Animation (Third Edition) by Rick Parent.
  • There is no exam at the end of the semester, but at the beginning of each lecture (with the exception of the first, introductory lecture) there is a small quiz testing the content of the previous lecture. The quizzes account for 35% of your grade. 
  • The exercises are implementations of four computer animation techniques (hierarchical modelling, interpolation, object manipulation and particle animation). All exercises are mandatory. The exercises account for 35% of your grade. 
  • In the small project, you will apply the techniques that you learnt in the course to design your own short animation storyboard. The small project (incl. presentation) accounts for 30% of your grade. 

All details about the course components will be available on TUWEL

All components are mandatory (e.g., you cannot skip the project, even if you got a passing grade from the quizzes+exercises!)
