Introduction to Blender
The Fresno State Downtown Center presents Introduction to Blender, a brand-new, six-week workshop. Learn 3D modeling and animation with the powerful, FREE software used by countless professionals!
This workshop will include lessons on how to model, rig, animate, and render in Blender. A final project will be produced that brings together the student’s work in an animated sequence representative of something one might do for a real estate visualization project. Additionally, this workshop will explore how content created in Blender can be exported for use in other applications.
Students will learn how to:
- MODEL buildings & other “man-made” geometric objects.
- DESIGN smooth & “organic” surfaces using surface smoothing & spline modeling.
- CREATE texture maps for 3D objects.
- ANIMATE a 3D character’s movements with a rigging system.
- RENDER quality images using Blender’s Cycles engine.
- EXPORT content created in Blender for use in other applications.
- ASSEMBLE complete rendered scenes with buildings, objects, & animated characters!
