Is one of you missing your colored pencils? You left them in the Gallery….
- You can find details for our Week 3 reading and assignments using the Calendar link above.
- Campus is closed on Monday January 21. No class sessions that day.
- Bring Physics textbook, student workbook, and PhysiKit to your physics lab session this week.
- See previous post for a note from Ruth about comments on your Animation homework.
- You can find the solutions to the week 2 Physics work under Assignments: Physics, above.
- Krishna has extended office hours this week: Tue 3 – 5 and Thu. 3 – 5. Please stop by.
I have just completed viewing all After Effects homework from week one. Nice job, everyone! These are delightful.
If you completed this assignment and put it in the file folder as requested, I evaluated it and left a note for you (text file) in that folder in your cubby about it. A few of you had already completed the sequence due next week and I also evaluated some of those (but not all!).
What I notice as common missteps are these:
- Not everyone is making sure that all the assets they are working with in a project file end up in the assets folder that they make for that file. It’s a good idea to make an assets folder before you start and place all the elements you think you might want to use in it. Do not import something that is not already in your assets folder!
- When using a composition (aka a “precomp”) to make an object that will be nested and animated in a larger composition, make it the smallest size possible that fits the scale of the object to facilitate your manipulation of it.
- Label your layers!
You can find the week 1 physics quiz under Assignments: Physics.
Note that the reading assignment to be completed before the Animation lecture also includes viewing several films and/or web sites listed here.

Attention Students who were in this program Fall quarter!
The Academic Statement Mentor Council is inviting you to come participate in a student discussion and reflection on fall quarter. Trajectories in Animation, Mathematics, and Physics was part of the Academic Statement initiative during fall quarter. Your faculty worked with you to help you think and write critically about your education, as well as reflect on it with purpose.
We would like to hear your thoughts and ideas about your experiences with this work in your program! This is an important opportunity to hear feedback and your creative ideas for the future.
Please come and participate in an open forum to discuss your experiences with fellow students and members of the Mentor Council! This is your opportunity to shape activities for next year and suggest ideas for the upcoming spring quarter mentoring day event. There will be tasty refreshments too!
Date: next Wednesday, January 16th 2012
Time: 12 pm to 1:15 pm (Calculus students, we know you’re in class until 1, but it’s okay to come late; there will be refreshments and an opportunity to participate until 1:45.)
Location: Library 1003
- We’re excited to begin our winter work with you.
- Our first class meeting begins promptly at 9 am Mon. Jan. 7 in Lecture Hall 2.
- Please read Chapter 7 – Rotational Motion for our first class meeting. Skip pages 210-212 and section 7.6. There will not be a Reading Response for this chapter, though there will be for the rest of the physics reading this quarter.
- Please come prepared to work on Monday, so bring your physics lecture notebooks and other materials as well as your sketchbooks for animation lecture.
- Calculus students – read section 4.5 for Tuesday.
- Please see the post below for many more details about our upcoming work.
- You can find our weekly meetings schedule under About: Weekly Schedule using the links above (a direct link is here). Please pay particular attention to the changes from last quarter, both times and rooms.
- An outline of the Animation workshops is available here.
- A tentative outline of our Physics work is available here.
- Drawing track students, please check here for an outline of the quarter and important information about supplies you will need by our first class meeting on January 8th.
- A tentative outline of our Calculus work is available here.
