Have you ever wanted to become an animator and bring your imagination to life?
In this course you receive a .Blend file with a simple character and scene created in the amazing free 3D software called Blender.
We begin by creating a character pose for easy animation throughout the scene. We will parent a controller object to the characters hand and animate the character using this later in the scene.
We create a walk cycle for our character and animate him walking backwards along a path as he carefully guides a paint rig into the scene.
To give the character some reactions we will use shape keys that control some simple face movements that are easily animated throughout the scene.
We will set up a camera to help capture the story of the scene and animate its movement from start to finish.
We will set up multiple scenes within Blender and render these scenes out in PNG format. Then we will use Blenders video editing features to quickly and easily combine those scenes with sound and render out the the short animation to view on a media player such as VLC.
Sound easy? You’ll be surprised at the results you can achieve with a little time and effort, using this amazing and extremely powerful application that is Blender.
