A seminar course on computer animation. We will read current papers on Computer Animation, using the text Computer Animation, by Rick Parent, as background material.

Expected of students

  • Read papers for the week, attend presentations
  • Present (or co-present) one or more of the topics.
  • A written report on the topic, OR an implementation project OR create a Houdini animation. This is due at the end of term.
Note: for audit credit, students are only expected to read, attend, and give a presentation. If you are taking the course for a grade, your mark will be based 40% on your presentation, 40% on your project, and 20% on participation, where most of the participation mark will be based on attendance.

Expected Background

CS 688 or a computer graphics course from another university would be a plus, but is not required.
