HPE Institute Chandigarh

Diploma in Animation & Graphics

HPE institute offers a diploma in animations and graphics typically refers to a specialized program that provides education and training in various aspects of animation and graphic design. These programs are typically offered by vocational schools, technical institutes, or specialized art and design schools.

The specific curriculum and duration of a diploma program in animations and graphics can vary depending on the institution offering it. However, some common topics covered in such programs may include:

Animation principles and techniques: This includes learning about the fundamentals of animation, such as timing, spacing, squash and stretch, and character movement.

2D and 3D animation: Students may learn how to create animations using both traditional hand-drawn techniques and computer-generated imagery (CGI). They may also explore 3D modelling and animation using software such as Autodesk Maya or Blender

Digital imaging and graphic design: This involve learning about graphic design principles, colour theory, typography, and image editing using software like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.

Storyboarding and scriptwriting: Students may learn how to develop compelling stories, create storyboards, and write scripts for animated projects.

Special effects and compositing:This include learning techniques to create visual effects and combine various elements to achieve a cohesive final product.

Module 1 – Pre- Production

This module is a complete introduction to the general sequence of events in pre-production. What does it need to bring an imagination into life is nothing but a flawless planning. Pre-production makes the first step towards making that roadmap on which the further production process has to be developed. First module of this 3D Animation Course covers every little thing about Pre-production from fundamentals of Graphic Designing, Layout Designing, Sketching, and Story Boarding to painting.

Project Conceptualization: During pre-production, the initial concept or idea for the animation or graphic project is developed. This may involve brainstorming, storyboarding, and creating a vision for the project.

Scriptwriting and Storyboarding: A script is written to outline the narrative, dialogue, and key scenes of the project. Storyboarding then takes place, which involves creating a series of illustrated panels or sketches that visually represent each scene in the script. Storyboards help in visualizing the flow of the animation or graphic project.

Character Design: The pre-production phase also involves designing and developing the characters that will be featured in the animation or graphics. This includes creating character sketches, defining their appearance, personality traits, and other relevant details.

Asset Creation: Various assets needed for the project are planned and created during pre-production. This may include designing backgrounds, props, and other visual elements that will be used in the animation or graphic project.

Style and Art Direction: Pre-production is the phase where the overall visual style and art direction for the project are determined. This includes defining the color palette, visual aesthetics, and any unique artistic choices that will be incorporated.

Module 2 – 3D Animation Development

Pre-production is a crucial phase in the animation and graphics production process. It involves planning, conceptualizing, and organizing the various elements required for a successful project. ere is a general description of the pre-production phase in animations and graphics:

Conceptualization: The first step in 3D animation development is to establish the concept or idea for the animation. This includes defining the storyline, characters, visual style, and overall vision for the project.

Storyboarding: Storyboarding is the process of creating a sequence of illustrated panels or sketches that represent the key moments and actions in the animation. It helps in planning the flow, composition, and timing of the scenes.

Modelling: In the modelling stage, 3D models of characters, objects, and environments are created. This involves shaping and sculpting digital geometry to create the desired forms and structures..

Texturing: Texturing is the process of applying surface materials, colours, and textures to the 3D models. It adds visual details and realism to the objects by mapping images or procedural patterns onto their surfaces.

Rigging: Rigging involves creating a digital skeleton, known as a rig, for the 3D models. This enables animators to manipulate and control the movement and deformation of the models, including joints, muscles, and facial expressions.

Animation: Animation is the process of bringing the 3D models to life by creating their movements and performances. Animators create keyframes, define poses, and interpolate between them to create smooth and believable motion.
