After completing the module, the student is able:
• to utilize basic tools in 3D -modelling and -animation
• to set up lighting in 3D -world
• to texturize 3D -objects
• to understand where to use 3D modelling
• to create 3D content for video games.


• 3D modelling and animation tools
• Object modelling
• character modelling and animation
• lighting and texturing techniques and tools
• modern approaches to 3D content creation
• 3D content creation for video games
• introduction of Game Engines for 3D Graphics

Competence objectives

3D- modelling tools and technigues.
3D scanning and photogrammetry
Object modelling and animation
Terrain and urban environments
Character modelling, rigging and animation
Lighting and texturing tools and technigues
3D graphics for games
3D Game Engines

Tools and software to be used:
Autodesk3DS Max, Autodesk Mudbox, Autodesk Motion Builder, Unity 3D, Unreal Engine,Adobe Photoshop. Other tools and software will be briefly demonstrated

During close contact sessions the students will follow the instructor's presentation and follow up with the lab computer or own laptop that is capable to run required 3D-software.
The students will receive laboratory assigments to be done before the next close contact session.

This course is suitable for absolute beginners but requires attendance due the chronological structure. If you miss a session it will we harder to follow the next session. The timetable and the content of each close contact session is available at Office Teams folder.

Student's workload

50h Close contact sessions
83h Laboratory assignments and home work


All the laboratory assignments and home work returned equals 1

additional final task for grades 2-5.

the task and its assesement criteria will be updated here. The assigment comes from an actual RDI project from Turku Game Lab.
