BCST 146 Video Motion Graphics (4)
Credit, Degree Applicable
Hands-on course for creating digital effects for broadcast, cablecast, webcast and distribution on mobile devices by applying video motion graphics and compositing techniques using both software and hardware-based methodologies. Motion graphic animations and video effects are conceived, created and integrated with video projects in studio and laboratory settings.
Offered Spring semesters
This course uses Adobe After Effects.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Identify, define, and assess te=s and methods of operation for motion graphic and video effects such as mattes, layering, masking, modes, motion path, motion tracking, keyframes, interpolation, alpha channels, effects controls, third party plug-ins, text effects, time re-mapping within a digital 2D and 2.5D environment.
- Outcome 2: Plan, organize and construct video effect projects from pre-production through lay-off to playback format.
- Outcome 3: Identify and evaluate criteria for appropriate use of software and/or hardware-based digital video effects.
- Outcome 4: Compare and contrast the processes, techniques and aesthetics involved in creating video effects using two distinct methodologies: dedicated broadcast video hardware as well as computer-based post-production software.
- Outcome 5: Import, source, integrate and apply digital video effects and motion graphic techniques in projects using software programs and computer hardware equipment.
