Modelling Props for VFX
Learn the essentials of Modelling to create a photoreal hero prop asset for VFX
Learn how to create a photorealistic asset suitable for high-end VFX
Modelling Props for VFX is a 16-week live and online programme where students will be taught the fundamentals of 3D modelling to create a photoreal, pipeline-ready prop for VFX. Through practical hands-on learning via live lessons and workshops, we’ll cover a wide range of topics covering the asset modelling process.
Now you may be thinking that 16 weeks is a long course, especially when it comes to modelling a single prop. However, we are aiming for quality and in order for you to absorb and apply the teaching, you’ll need time. Time to make mistakes and time to experiment, all of which will allow you to really grasp the tools, techniques, and the creative problem skills to become a succesful modeller.
We’ll also discuss other areas of the CG pipeline that are integral to the success of any project, such as Onset, Rigging, Texturing, Look Development, Lighting, Production, Bidding and Scheduling.
To underpin each stage lesson and to push your creative, technical and problem-solving skills, we’ll study the fundamentals and the theory behind Modelling. This includes studying subdivision surfaces, pushing our traditional skills, art, shape, function and form. This background research will directly feed into how we approach the creation of CG assets.
The outcome of the programme is to provide you with a strong modelling skillset enabling you to have a core understanding of the VFX modelling pipeline and an ability to apply these skills to real-world projects.
