After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand important techniques of computer animation from an algorithmic as well as technical point of view. The aim of the course is to impart knowledge about the current state of computer animation via lectures and the implementation of some examples.

The lecture is composed of classroom sessions and lab exercises. The course will closely follow the underlying textbook "Computer Animation: Algorithms and Techniques (Third Edition), Rick Parent, 2012" and the lab exercises will train the students how to implement the basic computer animation techniques. There will nine classroom lectures in total and four lab assignments that are to be completed in form of a home work or in the dedicated lab of the Institute 186.

ECTS Breakdown: 3 ECTS = 75 hours (estimate, recommendation)

The course will be examined as an oral exam where the student can achieve up to 70% score of the final grade. The rest of 30% will be gained through hand-in of the lab exercises. Each of the four exercises is mandatory to hand-in, even one missing will result in a negative overall grade even if the points would sum up to a non-negative grade.
