Introduction to  this topic.

Welcome to Sets & Staging!

In this topic we explore how virtual sets are constructed using geometric transformations.

This topic contains two lessons:

Lesson 1: Geometric transformations

• Build a scene from Toy Story based on a sketch from the Art department

Lesson 2: Mathematics of rotation

• Appropriate for the high school level
• Derive the rotation formulas used at Pixar using basic trigonometry

Want to join the conversation?

• What are the main courses in sets & staging
• There are 2. Geometric transformations and Mathematics of rotation.
• wow i have always wanted to be a vritual cartoonist
• Am I going to make a move
• Not in this session. This is just to show you how Pixar does it.

But there are several sites that help with animating things. Stop Motion is the best way to start, in my opinion.
• Why do we have to learn this. What I am going to be in life has nothing to do with geometric transformations.
• What is 2 divided by 3 divided by 4 divided by 9 =
