Generic Template Page

This is where I put draft versions of templates for classes. An example would be assignment descriptions.


This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade and is due at the <timedue>.

Assignment Name (AN) This is a description of the assignment. Start by explaining what assets the students will be using, what they will do with them and what the point of the assignment is. Follow with any qualifiers like: what to avoid, where their focus should be, how long this will take them. The describe assignment scope. How many pictures, assets or seconds  How long the item will be: 10 seconds (240 frames) Featured principles: Squash&Stretch, Anticipation, Staging, Straight Ahead/Pose to Pose, Overlap/Follow Through, Slow In/Out, Arcs, Secondary Action, Timing, Exaggeration, Posing (Solid Drawings), Appeal

Hand in will be as follows:
- 960x540 (HD540) resolution
- avi file with MSCRAM compression (or quicktime with H.264)
- no resolution gate, grid or animation controls visible

Items should be named: <Lastname>_<Firstname>_<Assetname>.avi
(eg. Latour_David_RunAnim.avi)

What I'll be grading on this assignment:

- A list of questions describing the parameters I'm evaluating. (my rubric) Limit to 5 criteria.
- Try to offer suggestions within the rubric, for example (using chocolate chip cookies)
- Is the texture of the cookie soft but not dry? (If they're too gooey, bake longer. Too dry? Bake less)
- List the criteria in order of importance, the first being most essential.
- Think about the point of the assignment when making this rubric: what do you want them to learn?

After this I follow with any demo material, ideally a step by step walk-through of the assignment with example files to show what the progress of an ideal assignment looks like.
