Computer Animation and Game Development

1.Game Development: Tools and Processes

This module will talk about various tools that are available for generating computer animations and game development. The module will have a detailed discussion on the methods and tools used in game development. The module will cover the process book starting from 3D character rig, scripting, character description, storyboarding, planning, data capturing, and final edits.

2.Game Designing

The module will cover as game development aspects related to scene construction, input handling, interfaces & shortcuts, object placement, logic and behavior, visual & sound effects, enemy logic and physics simulation.

3. Motion Capturing System (Mocap)

This module of the course will cover history of motion capturing, types of mocap systems, introduction to marker-based strategies, subject preparation, system calibration, capture pipeline, pre-processing, and data post-processing. The module will also cover full body motion capturing, hand mocap, facial mocap, lower and upper body motion capturing.

4.Integration and Pipeline Automation

This module will empower the participant to automate and build their own continuous integration pipelines, which result in a fast-paced development and deployment process. This module will enable the participants from diverse backgrounds to quickly ship their product features through the automated continuous deployment process. The game development requires tests to be run and all edge cases catered for. The module will, therefore, teach how automated tests are run as an integrated process once the feature is shipped. The module will also focus on monitoring, scalability, and resilience of the system.

5.Lessons Learnt and Future hints

This module will provide the participants with an opportunity to know the processes developed and implemented in an industrial setup to automate the development and deployment process. The secrets about tailoring the game development systems to cater for the current and future needs to meet the specified goals will be revealed. The art of making a game to capture the market trends will also be shared in this module with the participants.
