Kitchen appliances come to life in 3DMA

3D Model and Animation students our designing their own kitchen layout using the software Maya which allows students add realistic sound effects and change the appearance of various kitchen appliances.

Sizzle. Whisk. Splash.

The kitchen appliances on the computer screen come to life as 3D Model and Animation students add sound effects through the software Maya as a part of the Kitchen Chaos project.

“[The kitchen chaos project is when] you will have a character and he will jump on the soap, onto the cutting board, and he makes the knife fall off the counter and the rolling pen will roll over and squish him,” 3DMA teacher Demas Lamas said. “I personally think this will help students improve their animation skills because of the different ways you animate and you can use different techniques.”

From changing the appearance of appliances to adding realistic sound effects, Maya allows students to get creative in designing their own kitchen layout.

“I like the way you can add sound effects and animate the different kitchen items faces and just explore and add more things to your liking,” freshman Naomi Powell said. “I prefer this project over anything else because there is just way more that I can change about this and it’s more and different sound effects that I can use based on the motion of the objects in the kitchen.”

For students such as freshman Yousif Al Azzalwi, using a different animation software than what students usually use in 3DMA can be a little intimidating. 

“Yes this project is cool, but I prefer other animations because this one seems like it can be a little difficult, but I should be able to work around it,” Al Assalwi said. “It is very good for people if they want to get creative but maybe this animation just doesn’t fit me and I just have a different opinion than others.”
