GA 3220 - Game Shader Development
In this junior-level course students will be using 2D and 3D painting, as well as photo-editing techniques to expand their personal texture library and build complex shader systems utilizing a game engine. This studio-based course will explore advanced shader systems including those for animated, intelligent, reactive, and scripted materials. Upon successful completion of this course, students will have produced a fully textured environment utilizing a variety of animated and/or intelligent shader systems.
Prerequisites: AN3D 2320 - 3D Computer Lighting + Materials and GA 2220 - Game Creation Fundamentals
Notes: (Formerly GA 3220)
Course Learning Outcomes:
- Create custom material networks utilizing native software tools.
- Observe real world objects and translate their surface properties into shader attributes.
- Practice hand-painting textures, deriving them from photographs or procedurally generating them.
- Produce clean, functional light maps.
