Who's the course for?

Blender is a completely free, cross platform, 3D modelling and animation program. After the Linux operating system, it is also one of the most successful pieces of open-source software ever to be released. It includes a simple yet powerful modelling system that can be used to create 3D models. These models can then be textured, lit, and animated to create either graphical, artistic, or even photo realistic images and animations.

It uses are many and different artistic and design disciplines can benefit from its use, such as Product Design, Architecture, Performance, and the Fine Arts.

What you'll learn:

By the end of the course a participant will understand more about the Open-Source software movement. They will know the basics of 3D modelling, texturing, lighting, and animation.

Participants will create a few simple models which will then be textured. A virtual stage created to display them, and then virtual cameras and lights will be set up around them. The final scenes will then rendered (the process of drawing the scene).
