The courseware was created to deliver all necessary knowledge, while demonstrating the industry standard workflows for generating photo-realistic renders. This approach allows us to demonstrate what each feature does as well as teach how and when to use it. To do that we have provided:

  • Lesson plan This gives a basic sample lesson plan for the respective lecture.
  • Lecture – This introduces the theory of the topic. This is the time to show imagery, discuss theories, make the connection between CG and the real world, and explain what settings do.
  • Demonstration tutorial – Topics discussed in the lecture are put into action by the educator. It is important that students do not try to copy what is being shown so they can pay full attention to the demonstration and explanations.
  • Activity – Students gain vital hands-on experience be reproducing what they have seen, and can do their own experiments. This cycle gives the students the chance to try out settings, solve problems, and ask questions.

The lectures and activities are included in each module.

The lesson plans, presentations and demonstration tutorials are in the Available Materials section in each module.
