Chris Yonge teaches digital modeling and both 2D and 3D animation in the Baskin School of Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz, at UCSC Silicon Valley Extension in Santa Clara, and at Cabrillo College in Aptos. The courses are popular and repeated several times a year. They are supported by an extensive range of PDF handouts and YouTube videos. Click on the thumbnail images below for more details on those projects.

StudioCruz has always encouraged the use of open source software. OSS is free, well maintained, and reliable. Most of it has now the same quality and reliability as three and four figure priced commercial software five years ago. There is a list of recommended software, with links, here.
