Abstract

This paper outlines a tried and tested breadth-first approach for teaching essential key areas of the visual effects post production pipeline to novices. Successfully used in a first semester course our holistic process guides the creation of a single self-contained visual effects shot (video sequence) of photorealistic quality. We provide an overview of course curriculum, organization and exercises (lessons covering the essential areas of visual effects production for creating each of the individual elements of the final shot, as well as the final shot construction and composition itself), outline the assessment and discuss the evolution of the course, which we consider a model of ''best practice'' for teaching the 3D artists' introductory computer graphics sequence.
