Today kicked off with our first Unity learning session. I really enjoyed working with Unity this morning. The interface was easy to follow and understand and I was able to draw connection between Unity and Maya pretty quickly. I successfully imported my model from Maya and I also downloaded some trees from Sketchfab to add to my scene replacing my trees made of platonic solids and cylinders. After the Unity session this morning I went to Professional Workshop on Planning Research with REUs from other programs from across the university. I learned a lot and I am really glad I went. I plan on going to more of the Professional Workshops in the coming days and weeks. Something the instructor talked a little bit about was the importance of displaying data in a creative way for our project research poster. I’m looking forward to seeing how I can work with the data in my project to make the information and data analysis be perceived more clear and creative through graphics. I really enjoy working in Adobe illustrator and making cool looking graphics so it should be fun for me and a great way for me to contribute to the final presentation.
