Learn animation production from the first polygon to the final render! In this course you will create a sci-fi space scene using Blender. You'll learn about 3D modeling, UV mapping, texturing, animation, visual effects, and rendering. You can then take these techniques and apply them to create your own amazing animated scenes.
What do I get?
This course contains 62 videos totaling more than 11 hours of content. And you'll get all of the project files that were used to create the course, including the Blender scene files, reference images, textures, and sound files. You will also receive an invitation link to my Discord server where you can contact me if you have questions while going through the course.
What will we do?
In this course you will create the animated scene solely in Blender, from the first polygon to the final render. We will begin by bringing in and setting-up reference images that will help us create the 3D models of the ship, the cargo container, and the landing bay. We will then use Blender’s Node Editor to create the materials and textures for the 3D objects. Once that is complete we will begin work on creating the star fields, as well as the planet and cloud layers.
To prepare the ship for animation, you will learn how to create the rig for the landing gear, so that we can animate the legs and control the ship's bounce when it lands. You will also learn how to use Blender’s Graph Editor as we animate the ship coming in for a landing. And we will have some fun animating a texture to create the plasma-drive engines, and create a jet exhaust animation for the rear of the ship.
You’ll learn how to import characters into the scene and how to render a final animation. We will then bring in music and sound effects and mix the audio to picture in Blender’s Video Sequence Editor. Lastly, we will render out a video clip with both picture and sound.
Why should I get this?
If you’ve ever wanted to create your own animated scenes in Blender, then this course is for you. Using only free, open-source software you'll learn how to create a science fiction scene of a space ship flying in and landing in a cargo bay. You'll then be ready to start creating your own amazing animations!
