The retake grades for the course are available here. Your final grade, as well as your presentation and movie grade can be found in the PDF as well.
Due to an error in the Excel sheet, the final grades were not calculated correctly from the partial grades. The correct grades are available here. Sorry for the inconvenience!
The final grades for the course (including the movie and essay grade) are available here. If you didn't pass the course, you can do a retake essay. For more information about the retake essay, see this page. If you would like some feedback on the essay you handed in, please send the teacher an email.
A few minor changes have been made to the mocap timeslot assignment. Please verify the scheduled date and time for your team.
The mocap timeslot assignment for each mocap team is now available here. Before going into the mocap lab, come to my office (BBL420) for me to open the door. If I am not there, you can go to Cathy Ennis (BBL415) who also has access.
The paper assignment and the motion capture visiting schedule is now online.
The new website for the Computer Animation course (INFOMCANIM) is now online.
The course Computer Animation (before: the seminar computer animation) is given as a part of the GMT Master programme at the Utrecht University. The course consists of both regular and guest courses, as well as presentations by the participants. Next to an introduction to basic animation techniques such as interpolation, blending, skeleton animation, facial animation, (inverse) kinematics, motion capture, example-based motion synthesis and physics-based motion, we will focus on a selection of relevant animation-oriented papers. As a part of the course, a visit to the motion capture lab at Utrecht University will be organized, and participants will make a short animation movie using motion capture data.
During the course, participants will give a paper presentation in teams of two. Also, each participant will write a number of paper summaries. Also, a visit to the motion capture lab will be organized. The participants will produce a short animation movie in teams, using motion captured data. Roughly halfway the course, a session will be used for the teams to show their previz movies. The final animation movies will be shown at the last session.
To conclude the course, the participants will write an essay on a topic within the animation research area. The participants will get a grade for the presentation (P), a grade for the movie (M), and the grade for the essay (E). The final grade is then calculated as 0.3*P + 0.3*M + 0.4*E. However, in order to complete the course, there is an additional restriction that E>=5.
