Overview of extensions of CAD-based graphics into various types of media, including illustration, rendering, animation, and output to an interactive presentation, print, and web page design.
Offered on occasion
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Integrate the appropriate multimedia tools for a particular goal with regard to CAD-based graphics and communication of CAD data.
- Outcome 2: Plan a multimedia project based on available or affordable multimedia software, staff skills, and budget and scheduling considerations.
- Outcome 3: Create illustrations in Photoshop and Illustrator based on an AutoCAD drawing. Describe the distinct advantages of vector vs. pixel-based images.
- Outcome 4: Create simple animations as GIF files. Review other options for animation (3ds Max Design, Director, Flash, etc.), and understand bitstreaming options and alternatives to animation such as panoramic rendering and slide shows.
- Outcome 6: Compose symbols and legends for maps, site plans, etc.
- Outcome 7: Interpret the symbols and legends of maps, site plans, etc.
- Outcome 8: Organize various image sources on layers in imaging softwares such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
- Outcome 9: Revise a basic image with adjustments such as cropping, cutting, adjusting HSV levels, brightness/contrast, sharpening, adding lighting effects, etc., and appraising whether or not these adjustments improve an image.
- Outcome 10: Create prints integrating the concepts of print resolution and printing options.
- Outcome 11: Contrast the purposes of various image file formats (JPG, TIF, GIF, etc.).
- Outcome 12: Examine Alpha Channels and their usefulness in layering and creating opacity maps.
- Outcome 13: Compare various multimedia output options (print, web pages, PDF and other file formats, executable files, CD-Rom, animation files, etc.) and the distinct purposes and expenses involved.
- Outcome 14: Assemble web pages, balancing style with effective communication.
- Outcome 15: Integrate basic HTML editing and manage web issues such as color palettes, file size, browser compatibility, etc.
- Outcome 16: Analyze the purpose of communicating CAD graphics and CAD data and how to balance the two.
