Welcome to the Introduction to Blender course.



This three-day course is a beginner level course for anyone interested in learning how to create 3D art and assets with Blender. This course will introduce the learner to the Blender 3D software application.



The learner will be introduced to the basic concepts of working in 3D, and then taken through the steps of a general 3D scene workflow. During the course all the relevant aspects of creating a 3D scene, as well as the relevant theory, will be covered. This includes Modelling, Sculpting, UV mapping, Materials, Lighting, Scene setup and composition, Animation (Rigged and keyframe) and post processing. The course will also cover the use of the Eevee real-time rendering engine.  Toward the end of the course an overview of low poly modelling will be covered to explain the workflow of creating game engine ready assets.   By the end of this course the learner will be able to plan, design and execute their own 3D scenes at a n industry acceptable level.
