The animation and visual effects major emphasizes six elements of animation: rendering, motion, lighting, character rigging, texturing and 3D modeling; and three elements of visual effects: compositing, simulation and tracking. Students learn to layer video and photos, place actors into virtual environments and merge 3D models with live-action sets.
