HOW TO ANIMATE WITH BLENDER

A step-by-step course to character animation with Blender

 Animate with the best FREE 3D software

 35 comprehensive video lessons

 Made specifically for animators

What Will You Learn in the Course?

In this course I will take you step by step through all the tools and methods for animation in Blender.

 Interface

We’ll start by going over the Blender interface and understanding how to manipulate objects in our scene, then we’ll cover all the major animation tools like the dope sheet, the graph editor and learn how to create and use keyframes.

  Setting Up a Scene

We will set up a scene from scratch and make all the preparation for animating it: importing a rig, creating a camera and getting the right settings set up for animation.

 Animating a Shot

Then we’ll jump in and actually animate an entire shot from start to finish. We’ll sketch the poses with the Blender grease pencil tool, we’ll block our shot, spline it, polish it and see how all the tools we’ve learned about are being used in real time.

 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.

Made for Animators

As a 3D animator, I’ve built this course to be tailored specifically for animators.

Whether this is your first time animating with a 3D software, or even if you are transitioning from a different one (like Maya or Softimage), this course will take you through all the necessary tools so you can start animating straight away.
