Learn Animation Production in Blender 2.9

Have you ever wanted to create an animated scene, but thought it was too complicated, or just didn’t know where to start? Then try this course from Darrin Lile, as he walks you through the creation of an animated scene using Blender, a free, open-source software. Darrin shares a scene of a spaceship landing in a cargo bay, and then shows you everything that goes into making that scene, from the first polygon to the final render. He details how to import reference images to create 3D models, how to use the Node Editor to create the materials and textures for the 3D objects, and how to build star fields, planets, and cloud layers. He then dives into the animation, starting with the landing gear, and explains how to use the Graph Editor as you bring the ship in for a landing. To finish the animation, Darrin shows you how to mix music and sound effects in the Video Sequence Editor, before executing the final render of the animated scene.

Note: This course was created by Darrin Lile. We are pleased to host this training in our library.
