Blender Animation & 3D Character Animation Course
Learn the skills and knowledge of the 3D animation & Character Animation
in Blender for beginners and all levels of skill
Want to learn 3D character creation and animation but don't know where to start? This course is project based so we will be using the skills we learn along the way to create some awesome animations.
Learn The Art of 3D Animation From The Very Basics to The More Advanced
We will kick it off with learning the VERY basics of Blender. How to navigate around the scene, manipulate objects and everything you need to know to be comfortable in Blender!
-Then we will start with our very first animation project! Learning the basics of animation, modeling, materials, shapekeys to animate the face and much more to create our very first animation scene!
-Our second animation will be all about curves, animating along curves, using particle systems, modeling, texturing and much more! By this point you will start to feel comfortable with Blender and 3D animation and have the skills and knowledge where you can start doing your own projects!
-Our third project is a full animation! Just this one alone will teach you everything you need to know about character creation and animation! From making our character to rigging and adding materials to then creating our whole scene, lighting, adding sounds and much more! By the end of this you will have created a full animation that looks great and have learned the skills needed to create your own!
What you will learn
Interface--We’ll start by going over the Blender interface and understanding how to manipulate objects in our scene, then we’ll cover all major animation tools like the dope sheet, the graph editor, and learn how to create and use keyframes.
Setting Up a Scene--We'll set up a scene from scratch and do all the preparation for animating it, like importing a rig, creating a camera and getting the right settings set up for animation.
Animating a Shot--We’ll then jump in and actually animate an entire shot from start to finish. We’ll sketch the poses with the Blender grease pencil tool, block our shot, spline it, polish it, and see how all the tools we’ve learned are being used in production.
Render--When the shot is done, we’ll go over some render settings, just enough so you can export a great looking shot with minimal effort.
No previous knowledge of Blender required!
