• 1.

### Once you make a shape, it's important to check which of the following options?

• A.

Squash

• B.

Slice On

• C.

Base to Pivot

• D.

AutoGrid

• E.

Generate Mapping Coords

E. Generate Mapping Coords
Explanation
After creating a shape, it is important to check the "Generate Mapping Coords" option. This option allows for the creation of mapping coordinates, which are essential for applying textures or materials to the shape accurately. Without generating mapping coordinates, the shape may not appear correctly textured or may have distorted textures applied to it.

### How do you change the radius of a Sphere?

• A.

By right-clicking the sphere and select "Modify."

• B.

Go under Parameters and type in the required radius.

• C.

Go under Dimensions and type in the required radius.

• D.

By right-clicking the sphere and select "Change Radius."

• E.

By right-clicking the sphere and select "Change Dimensions."

B. Go under Parameters and type in the required radius.
Explanation
To change the radius of a Sphere, you need to go under Parameters and type in the required radius. This means that you can modify the sphere's size by directly inputting the desired radius value in the Parameters section. This method allows for precise control over the sphere's dimensions and ensures that the radius is set to the desired value.

### What are the 4 main types of view?

• A.

Left, Right, Top, Bottom

• B.

Left, Top, Front, Perspective

• C.

Birds-eye, Left, Front, Back

• D.

Center, Under, Over, Right

• E.

Perspective, Right, Front, Over

B. Left, Top, Front, Perspective
Explanation
The 4 main types of view are left, top, front, and perspective. These views are commonly used in design and engineering to represent an object or space from different angles and orientations. The left view shows the object from the left side, the top view shows the object from above, the front view shows the object from the front, and the perspective view provides a realistic representation of the object as it would appear in real life.

### The base of DNA consists of which of the following shapes?

• A.

1 Circle, 1 Sphere, 1 Rod

• B.

2 Spheres, Tube

• C.

2 Spheres, Cylinder

• D.

7 Circles

• E.

2 Spheres, Cone

C. 2 Spheres, Cylinder
Explanation
The base of DNA consists of two shapes, which are 2 Spheres and a Cylinder. This is because the DNA molecule is a double helix structure, with two strands that are twisted around each other like a spiral staircase. The two strands are made up of nucleotides, which are composed of a sugar-phosphate backbone and a nitrogenous base. The nitrogenous bases form hydrogen bonds with each other, connecting the two strands together. The shape of the nitrogenous bases can be represented as spheres, while the sugar-phosphate backbone can be represented as a cylinder. Therefore, the correct answer is 2 Spheres, Cylinder.

### Is the option to create a Sphere under the "Geometry" or "Shapes" option?

• A.

Geometry

• B.

Shapes

• C.

Both

• D.

None

• E.

Such an option doesn't exist.

A. Geometry
Explanation
The correct answer is Geometry because a sphere is a three-dimensional geometric shape. It is not classified under the "Shapes" option because that category typically refers to two-dimensional shapes such as squares, circles, and triangles. The "Geometry" option encompasses all types of geometric shapes, including spheres.

### In which toolbar is the "Array" option found?

• A.

Modify toolbar

• B.

Create toolbar

• C.

Extras toolbar

• D.

Motion toolbar

• E.

None of the Above

C. Extras toolbar
Explanation
The "Array" option is found in the Extras toolbar.

• 7.

### What must you do to generate your final image/animation?

• A.

You must press play

• B.

You must save it

• C.

You must click "Generate" in the create toolbar.

• D.

You must "Render" the project.

• E.

Both C and D

D. You must "Render" the project.
Explanation
To generate the final image or animation, you must "Render" the project. Rendering is the process of converting the project files into a viewable format, such as a video file or an image sequence. Pressing play only previews the project within the software, saving it is a separate action that does not directly generate the final output, and clicking "Generate" in the create toolbar may not be a relevant option depending on the software being used. Therefore, the correct option is to render the project.

• 8.

### You can animate a scene without selecting "AutoKey."

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because in order to animate a scene in most animation software, including Autodesk Maya, you need to have "AutoKey" selected. AutoKey automatically sets keyframes for any changes made to an object's attributes, allowing for easy animation. Without selecting AutoKey, you would have to manually set keyframes for each attribute change, which would be time-consuming and inefficient. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### When animating a scene, you drag the time slider after you do your animation/movement.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
When animating a scene, you do not drag the time slider after you do your animation/movement. The time slider is used to control the playback of the animation and to preview the movement you have already created. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

### The "Create Bones" option is found by going under the Create Toolbar.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation

Rate this question:

• 11.

### In the Lab where we created snow, we also used a _ _ _ Effect.

• A.

Cloud

• B.

Rain

• C.

Fog

• D.

White

• E.

None of these

C. Fog
Explanation
The correct answer is "Fog" because when creating snow in a lab, it is common to use a fog effect. This is because fog is made up of tiny water droplets suspended in the air, similar to how snow is formed in nature. By creating a fog-like atmosphere in the lab, scientists can simulate the conditions necessary for snow formation and study its properties.

### To animate our "Bones" figure, we selected the _ _ Solver.

• A.

KI

• B.

KK

• C.

II

• D.

IK

• E.

None of these

D. IK
Explanation
The correct answer is IK because IK stands for "Inverse Kinematics," which is a method used in animation to control the movement of a character's limbs. Inverse Kinematics allows animators to set a desired position for a character's hand or foot, and the rest of the limb will automatically adjust accordingly. This makes it easier to create natural-looking movements and animations. Therefore, selecting the IK Solver would be the appropriate choice for animating the "Bones" figure.

### Most of the textures we used in class are found under the _ _ _ library.

• A.

TML

• B.

TTL

• C.

MML

• D.

MMT

• E.

MTL

E. MTL
Explanation
The correct answer is MTL because it is the only option that matches the given letters in the question. The question states that most of the textures used in class are found under a specific library, and out of the given options, MTL is the only one that fits.

### The Atmospheric effects are found by going under the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ option.

• A.

Cloud

• B.

Environment

• C.

Forest

• D.

Creative

• E.

None of these

B. Environment
Explanation
The correct answer is "Environment" because atmospheric effects are related to the environment. The environment includes factors such as air quality, temperature, humidity, and other conditions that can affect the atmosphere. By selecting the "Environment" option, one can access settings or options related to atmospheric effects in the given context.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### What Atmospheric Effect is used to create the Sun?

• A.

Snowball effect

• B.

Environment

• C.

Forest

• D.

Both A & B

• E.

Fireball effect

E. Fireball effect
Explanation
The correct answer is "Fireball effect." The fireball effect refers to the atmospheric phenomenon that occurs when the Sun appears as a fiery ball during sunrise or sunset. This effect is caused by the scattering of sunlight by the Earth's atmosphere, which scatters shorter wavelengths of light such as blue and green, while allowing longer wavelengths like red and orange to pass through. As a result, the Sun appears larger and redder when it is closer to the horizon. This atmospheric effect is responsible for the beautiful colors and unique appearance of the Sun during these times of the day.
