I have taken Scripting & Dynamics this semester which is a continuation of the Technical Art Applications module.
For the coursework we are able to choose a project in any of the many fields of visual effects and scripting for visual effects. I am more particularly interested in the art side of the course and how I could use particle systems and dynamics to help build an environment.
Although we’ve yet to look at the particular methods of fluids, cloth and scripting, I can begin to think about what kind of things I may want to make:
- Planetary and space visual effects
- Atmospheric effects including particles, weather, winds, smoke, etc.
- Compositing effects onto film
- Meteor or spacecraft re-entry effects
I am interested in exploring anything related to space as I feel my personal interest and knowledge of astronomy and spaceflight could be used to my advantage.
