introduction to design for VR and 3d spaces
The course will introduce students for the first time with designing and realising 3d virtual objects and environments. The course will start by introducing primitive 3d shapes while focusing on creating and manipulating a single object. Students will then progress to working on a series of objects which share similar attributes but express different character. By the end of the course we will create a fully realised 3d environment considerate of points of view, structure, rhythm and mood. In this course we will highlight methods of self-learning and ways to keep progressing independently in this new medium. By the end of the course students will earn a new and powerful tool for creating images, designs, illustrations and assets for real time environments with a broad understanding of shapes, materials, lighting and spatial design.
