Exploration of concepts, design and development of digital video production and editing skills as they relate to CD Rom/DVD, Internet, and Digital Video.

GCIP 140 - Digital Imaging/Photoshop I
Introduction to digital imaging systems for Graphic Communications and new media. Emphasis on applications relating to color reproduction and electronic delivery systems. (Some quotes from former students)

GCIP 140A - Digital Imaging/Photoshop IA (Fast Track class that is the first 1/2 of a semester length GCIP 140 course)
Introduction to digital imaging systems for Graphic Communications and new media. Emphasis on applications relating to color reproduction and electronic delivery systems.

GCIP 140B - Digital Imaging/Photoshop IA (Fast Track class that is the second 1/2 of a semester length GCIP 140 course)
Introduction to digital imaging systems for Graphic Communications and new media. Emphasis on applications relating to color reproduction and electronic delivery systems.

GCIP 141 - Digital Imaging/Photoshop 2
The Concepts of intermediate digital imaging with Adobe Phototshop for visual, pictorial and graphic use in all media. Effective image creation for motion graphics, publications and internet for effective visual communications.

GCIP 152 - Digital Publishing/Illustrator I
Introduction to computer-generated digital layout. Illustrator will help the student generate new images or convert bitmapped images into PostScript. Quality levels needed for digital output will be evaluated.

GCIP 252 - Digital Publishing/Illustrator II
Advanced concepts and methods of Illustrator and its use in graphic illustrations and problem solving. Software capabilities for use in preparing computer files for publishing to digital and electronic delivery systems.

GCIP 240 - Photoshop III
The concepts of advanced digital imaging with Adobe Photoshop for creating and preparing images for electronic distribution. Advanced methods of editing in all venues of digital media for visual communications.

GCMW 201 - Intermediate Multimedia
This class has been completely rewritten to incorporate strategies and techniques for designing sound for picture and color grading. The course uses Apple's Final Cut Pro, SoundTrack Pro, and Color.

GCMW 203 - Web Multimedia
Open discussion of current technologies, social issues, and design theory directly related to multimedia for the Internet and World Wide Web. Experimental and practical application of multimedia in graphic user interface and user navigation design via assigned class projects.

This class is a handful. We cover all of the various aspects of multimedia on the web: text, graphics, animation, sound and video. The latest in streaming technology and applications is covered along with the usability aspects involved in quality web design. Applications that we cover include Photoshop and Fireworks for Graphics, Flash and Motion for Animation, Illustrator for Illustrations, iMovie and possibly a bit of Final Cut Pro for Video, Compressor and other appsfor compression, the main three media players - Quicktime, Real and Windows Media, GarageBand for audio, Acrobat, and Dreamweaver to gather all the elements together into web pages.

GCMW 205 – Digital Video for Multimedia
Exploration of concepts, design and development of digital video production and editing skills as they relate to CD Rom/DVD, Internet, and Digital Video Tape. (Some quotes from former students)

GCMW 206 - Motion Graphics Production and Compositing
This course will be a "cap course" in which the student combines skills learned in multiple disciplines. For example the student will combine video skills learned in Graphic Communications and RTV with skills learned in ART or CAD by compositing a video that incorporates 3D rendered characters with live video footage and stills. The student will complete the work by preparing it for publication using Digital Video, DVD, and/or online Streaming technologies.

The software used during this course will be The Foundry's high end compositing application NukeX, the Free 3D application Blender, Apple's Final Cut Pro for video editing, and Adobe's Photoshop.

In case you are not familiar with NukeX, it has been used in many of the films that won or have been nominated for the Academy Award for Visual Effects. So now are you interested in taking this class?
