endorsement of the first 3DVIA Virtools course in Singapore. New York University Tisch School of the Arts Asia will be offering the “3D Interactive Studio Using Virtools” workshop from March 24 to 28. The five-day course is aimed at training the growing community of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DVIA Virtools users in Singapore.

The intensive workshop will cover 3D design, introduction to the Virtools roadmap, creating a game, designing applications for scientific virtualization, and introduction to virtual worlds and communities.

3DVIA Virtools is a complete development and deployment platform with an innovative approach to interactive 3D content creation. The 3DVIA Virtools production process facilitates prototyping and robust development up to large-scale, immersive or online, life-like experience delivery.

New York University Tisch School of the Arts, one of the world’s leading arts schools, set up the Asia campus in 2007. 3DVIA Virtools is used in Tisch School of the Arts Asia’s Animation and Digital Arts program. Jean-Marc Gauthier, Director of Animation and Digital Arts MFA program and Assistant Arts Professor will be the workshop instructor.

“3DVIA Virtools users in Singapore are looking for more knowledge and skills training to use the software. As experienced 3DVIA Virtool users ourselves, our school will share our expertise so that more people can use this tool more effectively and creatively for 3D design, animation and gaming,” said Gauthier, an interactive artist, author and entrepreneur whose work ranges from computer games to animation and virtual spaces.

The school has capacity for 12 participants for the “3D Interactive Studio Using Virtools” workshop, which will be held at its premises at 3 Kay Siang Road.
“This workshop is just the start. As the number of 3DVIA Virtools users is increasing around the region, we may work with Tisch School of the Arts Asia to offer more workshops to regional users,” said Joseph De Bonnafos, Business Development Manager, 3DVIA of Dassault Systemes Singapore Pte Ltd.
