Blender 3D Modelling & Animation course

Ever wondered what the buzz is about when it comes to 3D modelling?

Worldwide, artists and companies from game developers, TV producers and web designers, to architects, archaeologists and museums all use 3D Modelling tools in different ways, whether it’s creating graphics, animations or object visualizations, to 3D printing.

During this 6 week course, you’ll learn how to create your concepts into convincing creations complete with realistic surface textures using the 3D Software Blender.

You’ll then take your 3D models to the next level by learning how to sculpt, do modeling and prepare them in perfect detail using Blender’s precision sculpting tools like a digital Michelangelo.

Learn to create anything from realistic characters to detailed organic shapes such as trees or geological formations, and discover how to use Retopology to transfer sculptural details onto low polygon models.

We’ll also dig into the basics of animating 3D objects for video rendering, using virtual lights and creating atmospheric effects.

In this course you will learn the following skills:

3D Modeling & Texturing | The Theory behind 3D models | The Blender Interface for modelling and editing | Editing and manipulating 3D objects | The most important modelling techniques | Unwrapping 3D objects | Texturing 3D objects and the purpose of textures | How to use the reference material for modeling | Modeling different types objects

3D Sculpting & Retopology | Use the Sculpting tool in Blender | Work with the Sculpting interface | Create High detail model | Create a low polygon model out of a high polygon model (Retopology)

Finishing Touches | Basic animation | Virtual lighting | Atmosphere effects

Facts, Figures and FAQ.
