C) 3D Animations 2009 - 2013

The course "Simulation and Animation" has been replaced from 2009 by "Simulation and 3D Animation". The course starts with an introduction to 2D animation with Proof5, continues with an introduction tp Proof3D and finishes with explaining an execising discrete event simulation (DES).

The following collection of examples contains assignments created or invented by the students themselves. The examples usually contain 3D-Models in the .x format and images as jpg or png which are not listed separately in the following table. They can be downloaded together with .lay, .atf, .ptf, .slx and .gps files as a packed file. Clicking on the image sometimes an avi or mp4 video appears.

Jana Schumann: Labyrinth This is a 3d-stone-labyrinth Jana created in 3ds Max. There are 9 mice (also created in 3ds Max) and 8 paths inside the labyrinth. At the two ends there are mousetraps (also created in 3ds Max). The mice are starting at different start points and running through the labyrinth to get the cheese or the red fruits (created in P3D). The last mouse gets in a mousetrap. I added one path to the mousetrap class. The red dot gets around the mousetrap to say "danger!". 7,555 KB YouTube
