Learning Objectives For the fabricators, this helpdesk represents an opportunity for individual groups to get feedback on proposals for test cut objects.

For the animators, in the first part of help desk we will take about 45 minutes to discuss / workshop the animation storyboards, and by the end of this session everyone should be relatively clear on how they are conceptually framing their animation and how they plan to represent each of the three components.

Introduction to Bongo

Bongo is a key frame animation plugin for Rhino. Almost all properties associated with 3d models can be animated with Bongo. This includes object motion, rotation, scale, color, visibility, light, material, and gloss. Like render views in Rhino Bongo works via a camera within model space that preform all motions associated with a traditional video camera. The introduction to Bongo workflow will be specifically targeted to the architectural occupation component of your animation.
