Procedural Animation Workshop 2011

Date:
2012/01/05

Like in 2010, I held the “Procedural Animation” class at the University of Applied Sciences Hagenberg in October 2011. Again, the students had to create a procedural still using MEL or Python in Autodesk Maya. This year, the task was to visualize a part of the computer’s directory tree. The data was all given by the file system — file sizes, directories, files, links, file names, creation-/modification-/last-access-dates, number of files in a directory, file types, file extensions,… After one and a half days of theoretical introduction and one and a half day of actual work, the students produced great artworks, in both artistic and technical regard.

Here are some of the results:

Procedural Animation Workshop

Date:
2010/12/17

Last week I held a class called “Procedural Animation” at the University of Applied Sciences Hagenberg (Masters Degree Digital Arts). After having to listen to some theory, the students had to create a procedural artwork using MEL or Python in Autodesk Maya. The task was to visualize spam-emails. The results are really cool I think. They were all created by generating 3D geometry based on various parameters, gathered from parsed text files (spam emails), and by adding some randomness here and there. Good job!
