3D Modeling and
Animation - Blender
Students will use Blender, a powerful open source software, to learn about 3D creative media production including 3D modeling, texturing, UV editing, character skeleton setting, video lighting simulation, and animation key frame setting.
The course will teach the theory of 3D media production and the operation of Blender from the beginning to the end. From the interface and common functions of Blender to model topology and character creation, students will learn the complete 3D animation production process and get started quickly through this course. The instructor will demonstrate a number of 3D media production cases and answer students' questions on the spot, creating a harmonious classroom atmosphere with close teacher-student interaction.
Each case study is accompanied by an assignment for students to complete on their own so that the instructor can assess the students' knowledge after the class. By the end of the course, each student/group should be able to complete basic 3D character design and simple 3D animation sets independently.
