The first step into the 3D world "Blender Modeling and Animation Production” seminar
Krystal Institute and Nang Yan College are jointly organizing a series of DECT career courses, focusing on professional techniques, practical tips and spiritual insights, to enable those who are new to the field to acquire the know-how to take their professional skills to the next level.
At present, commonly-used 3D software in the market are either too simplistic, or licensed (ie. with cost). If you want a sufficiently functional and free software, Blender is the best choice.
In this seminar, we will introduce several areas of application for Blender, mainly through practical demonstrations. We will introduce the process of making Low-Polygon models, which are mainly used in game production. Another featured project is to use the sculpting function for making figurine models. Together with 3D printing technology, the ultimate goal is to enable you to produce your own figurines or model accessories.
Language︰Activities, sharing and Q&A sessions will be conducted in Cantonese
Analyze and compare commonly-used 3D graphics software in the industry Introduce functions of Blender, the open source 3D graphic software Blender 3D modeling demonstration:
1. Low-Poly Modeling
3. UV Mapping
Presentation of game animation examples made with Blender
Date：September 30, 2022 (Friday)
Time：7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
