The Animation Studio (first image) is specifically for students in the Entertainment Design and Game Design programs. Software available for free in the Game Lab includes Maya for 3D modeling and animation, Z-Brush for high-detailed digital game art, and the Adobe Suite, including Photoshop and Illustrator. Receiving an expansion and revamp in summer 2018, the Animation Studio gives students a sense of home.
"I kind of live here," said Entertainment Design student, Rachel Rohe. "My teammates and I spend the whole weekend here sometimes. Having the lab open outside of class is so necessary. We have access to all of our software."
With approximately 24 stations, students comfortably design individually and in teams. Two teaching monitors and AirMedia wifi projection allows for easy instruction presentation and group discussion.
