The HMGMC offers a full range of software, from beginner to professional-level, for creating and editing 3D models, audio, video, photography, graphics, animation and design. We also have specialized workspaces that have capabilities for high-quality video production, regular and oversized scanning, photographing small to medium objects in a light box, video conferencing and presentation rehearsal. The HMGMC has a dedicated staff ready to assist users at all points in their project. Our location is on the third floor of Kent Library, room 329.
