Blender Bootcamp is an intensive training immersion into the world of visual effects. Your Zoom instruction will be one-on-one with a live instructor. You, along with others in the class, will interact directly with the instructor, ask questions, get guidance and receive personalized feedback.
Throughout the course, you will learn specifics of the Blender program; how to create 3D characters, modeling, compositing, material creation and cgi integration. In this course you will not only learn the use of Blender, but you will create your own short animation piece by the end of the program.
Blender is an internationally used visual effects program that is being utilized in numerous professional applications. Blender is a free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.
Specifics of the course:
Learn how to model and animate a 3D character from the start. Work with materials, hair, textures, backgrounds, motion, rigging.
Create animation moves, visual effects and simulations using Blender. You will animate characters, scenes, environments and cameras.
As well, you will create visual effects with camera tracking/matchmoving, adding realistic effects into footage.
As this is a node based program, you will Integrate cgi into footage using advanced node base compositing techniques
This course will teach you how to integrate cgi into your footage using advanced compositing techniques in Blender’s compositor.
Blender is well suited to individuals and small studios who benefit from its unified pipeline and responsive development process. Blender is cross-platform and runs equally well on Linux, Windows, and Macintosh computers. Its interface uses OpenGL to provide a consistent experience.
Blender’s fully fledged built-in compositor allows you to post-produce your renders without leaving Blender.
The compositor comes with:
- Impressive library of nodes for creating camera FX, color grading, vignettes and much more
- Render-layer support
- Full compositing with images and video files
Blender features production ready camera and object tracking, allowing you to import raw footage, track it, mask areas and reconstruct the camera movements live in your 3d scene. Eliminating the need to switch between programs.
The Camera and Object Tracker includes:
- Automatic and manual tracking
- Powerful camera reconstruction
- Real-time preview of your tracked footage and 3d scene
Certification of Completion Available.
