We are moving on to Unity and will be creating a solar system simulation.
Here are some resources to find assets: Unity Asset Store, CG Trader, Turbo Squid
Unity supports many different types of files and will then convert them to: .FBX, Bitmaps or OGG
PLEASE DOWNLOAD THESE ASSETS for your Solar System
As we come to the end of the semester – I want to make sure that saving, exporting and posting are clear. We cannot afford to lose any more work.
When working in Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Audition or After Effects you have finished working in the lab or at home save and name your project in the same folder you have put your media. You will get a work file that can only be opened in the same version of the program.
For example: logo.ai or Trailer.prproj YOU MUST KEEP YOUR MEDIA WITH THESE FILES – Upload this to your Google Drive or Flash drive. You may have a different version at home that won’t work at school. Here is some information about backward saving. PLEASE READ AND TEST
OK Moving on … Your project is amazing and you want to export. Once you export your file will be able to be played on a media player or posted etc.
Photoshop – jpeg, tiff,
Premiere/After Effects – .mov or .mp4
Audition – .wav (uncompressed) mp3 or m4a compressed
SAVE THIS ON YOUR GOOGLE DRIVE —
Linking to Openlab — right click on the file in Google drive and press share. Grab the shareable link and post in Open Lab. Please write an explanation for each project.
HERE ARE THE PROJECTS YOU NEED TO PASS THIS CLASS
Illustrator Logo, Silhouette, Photoshop Surreal image/s, CD Cover, Audition Mash-up, Premiere Trailer, After Effects Postcard, After Effects Bumper, Unity Solar System

Ok! Have fun!
We will be making 30 second – one minute trailers in Adobe Premiere. Building on the concept of mash-ups you will be expected to use 3-5 video/sound sources to create a new piece. Please also include titles and a rating screen.
Here is an example

A bit of housekeeping: For those of you who didn’t have a chance to show your work or with incomplete portfolios, I will be following up with you individually. So please make sure you complete the work. I wanted to also remind you to come to class on time. I will be taking attendance at 10 AM from now on.
Please create a mash-up on Audition using at least two or more songs and one additional source such as a part of a speech/line in a movie etc. You do not have to use a lot of a source. It could even be one word or one 4 beat loop. They should be between 30 sec-2 min
Ok! Bring some headphones!

Each of you will be creating an Open Lab/Wordpress site for all the work you produce in this class. Your site should be customized in a manner that is professional and highlights your work. Please be make sure that I have your Open lab URLs ASAP.
Assignment 1: Due on Wednesday
Please create an Open Lab site. You will need to have a CIty Tech email to create this site. If you are having trouble accessing your site visit the quick links on City Tech’s website for tech support. http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/
- Customize your page with a responsive theme that supports multimedia, an original header, personalized colors, title and tagline. Your header can be a photograph that you recently took or an image that you have designed. Be aware of the ideal pixel size as you design a header.
- Create an “About Me” page. This should be a simple bio that reflects who you are. You may also include a photograph.
- Create your first post which can simply be a bit of text welcoming us to your site. Feel free to upload a photo etc.
