This free online course from Columbia University shows you how to create lifelike animations focusing on the technical aspects of CGI animation and also give you a glimpse into how studios approach the art of physically-based animation. The course is rich in mathematics and science. For instance you will learn the fundamental concepts of physical simulation, including:
- integration of ordinary differential equations such as those needed to predict the motion of a dress in the wind.
- formulation of models for physical phenomena such as crumpling sheet metal and flowing water.
- treatment of discontinuities such as fractures and collisions.
The course is 12 weeks long starting Feb 4 and will require 8 – 10 hours a week.
