Math 4 CG Artists OnLine Training Course

DescriptionWithout a doubt Math is indispensable in our lives, without it we could never figure out simple calculations like time, weather or space. In 3D graphics Math is really important as well because we are dealing with numbers all the time, geometry and many other concepts of Math.

This training program is devoted to artists that want to learn Math but don’t want to deal with complex terminology that probably doesn’t make sense. I will say that here, you will learn Math but by using an artistic approach.

We found that a lot of CG artists run away from Math because they think that it is pretty difficult to master, and let us tell you something…  they are absolutely right!!

Math is difficult to master at some degree but as CG artists all we need to know are a few concepts that will make our workflow a lot more easier every time we work on a project.

With that said, we promise you that this course will help you to absolutely understand these concepts so that you can quickly take a step forward in your career.

Curriculum

►Mathematics

Mathematics is the science of studying structure, quantity, space and change. As you can see all this takes effect in the CGI world. This chapter is devoted to teaching you why the use of math is going to make your life easier when working with computer graphics.

►Numbers

Numbers are a representation of something right? But why are some numbers better for some types of calculation than others? Well this class is all about numbers so don’t worry about a thing because after this chapter you are going to understand what the different types of numbers are.

►Algebra

Algebra is one of the main branches of Mathematics and this is why we really need to dig into the fundamentals of it. Rules of operations and relations are going to be studied in this chapter to allow you to solve equations the proper way.
Trigonometry

This chapter is all about triangles and angles. In the world of 3D graphics we deal with this type of data all the time so let’s get into the process of analyzing how to take advantage of this branch of Mathematics in our CG projects.

►Geometry

This class is all about shapes, position, size and space. All of these concepts are really important when working in visual effects, 3D animation or video games and this is why in this chapter you will learn how to deal with lengths, areas and volumes.

►Coordinates

Imagine a world without coordinates, wow it would be impossible to figure out the exact point or location of something. Now these days we have google maps and things like that to help us locate places or events, but still we need to understand how this system can help us to accomplish tasks more efficiently when dealing with any CG project.
Transformations

In this chapter of our Math course, we are going to deal with rotation, reflection, translations and these types of functions. If you are planning to become a good CG artist you must possess a strong foundation of these simple operations so that you can navigate freely in this world.

►Dealing with Vectors

Vectors have many purposes and when using them in CG there is not an exception, vectors allow us to point direction, assign color or simply to help us with orientation issues.  This chapter is completely dedicated to vectors in CG and at the end of the program you will be able to take advantage of these elements in a variety of situations when working in computer graphics.

►Curves and surfaces

Curves are lines that are not straight right? Well that is true, but if we understand better it’s topology, conventions and terminology I can guarantee you that these simples curves are going to become one of your very best friends.
