The project will guide you through what is a storyboard, translating a storyboard into a programmable script, and how to program a short 3D animation. This lesson is a condensed version of the introductory lessons for scene design, programming, and the design process. Those lessons linked to below can be referenced for more information and resources depending on time and skill level.
