(Installment Options Available)

Duration: 6 Months


The 3D & 2D Animation Certification is designed to teach students how to create moving three-dimensional images in a digital context and make them expert animators. These visuals are made using 3D software, allowing animators to create computerized objects that look 3D even though they are on a 2D surface. Through visual effects and precise timing, you as animators can make anything from a video game character to a car in an advertisement look like it moving through a three-dimensional space. You will get knowledge of the following by earning this certificate:

  • Create a mood board to organize your ideas
  • Sketch out your ideas
  • Use your sketch as a starting point for an illustration
  • Use basic shapes to create an outline
  • Use the pen tool to create organic shapes
  • Color your illustration
  • Add details
  • Prepare it for animation
  • Import it into After Effects
  • Animate an object's position and adjust its motion path
  • Create masks
  • Animate colours
  • Animate scale and opacity
  • Use the wave warp effect to animate smoke
  • Animate snow (and make it loop!)
  • Render (export) your animation as a .mov, .mp4, or gif file.

Scope of 2D & 3D Animation Certificate The need for qualified 3D animators is growing along with the animation industry. Today, practically every industry needs 3D artists. Businesses now anticipate real-world images and animations to explain concepts and topics due to technological advancements.
