A series of practical classes to develop the understanding of 3dStudio Max/Viz acquired through the introductory module DR34120. Later practical classes will provide an opportunity for a focus on skills and techniques appropriate to individual project work. The seminar series will concentrate upon (by demanding research into) significant contemporary performance practice working within or otherwise exploiting computer-generated environments.
