3D Texture, Mapping, Digital Lighting

Course No. GAME 347  Credits: 3.0

This course is designed to cover concepts in digital application of texture maps for 3D game models rendered in a real-time 3D game engine. Optimization of textures maps, and materials, poly count limits, and how to “bake” extremely high levels of detail into low detail models capable of being rendered in real-time, and the benefits of using “Levels of Detail” with static, and dynamic lighting concepts, design, and optimization. The use of toggle-able lighting, and attachment of lighting to game assets and players. The importance of creating immersive environments, capable of being walked through, and/or viewed from multiple, often unspecified angles of view. Projects include concept integration into technical production workflow for describing, and optimizing digital 3D surfaces for rendering in a real-time game engine, creating immersive environments that express mood, and narrative through the materials, and lighting. Projects require the student to continually improve upon conceptual problem solving, time management strategies, communication, presentation and technical skills.
