“Mathematical Basics of Motion and Deformation in Computer Graphics”

This book presents an intuitive introduction to the mathematics of motion and deformation in computer graphics. Starting with familiar concepts in graphics, such as Euler angles, quaternions, and affine transformations, we illustrate that a mathematical theory behind these concepts enables us to develop the techniques for efficient/effective creation of computer animation. This book, therefore, serves as a good guidepost to mathematics (differential geometry and Lie theory) for students of geometric modeling and animation in computer graphics. Experienced developers and researchers will also benefit from this book, since it gives a comprehensive overview of mathematical approaches that are particularly useful in character modeling, deformation, and animation.

A book titled “Technical Artist Start Kit” is released, which is published by Born Digital, Inc. in Japan.
This book is the result of the in-house education program for artists at OLM Digital, Inc. .

Art x Technique

With this book the authors want to fill the gap between computer graphics theory
and 2D/3D image creation.
First you learn the theory and then you practice with Maya and After Effects.

A “Technical Artist” is a guy who understands science and art,
and is able to use it complementary in his/her image creation process.
He/She may be the pipe between engineers and artists.

This book gives artists who aim at “Technical Artist” position the fundamental basis
and knowledge they need.
The minimal requirement is near zero, since we include the necessary mathematics
and physics starters.
Artists will be invited to write scripts, and to get their hands on the problems by practicing with the numerous exercises included in each chapter.
