Blender 3D – Basic Course

In the first part of the course you will be introduced to the theoretical level of basic concepts of 3D production graphics - modeling, UV mapping, texturing, material preparation, rigging, animation, lighting and rendering. In the second part of the course you will work in open-source (free) software Blender 3D. You will learn the basics of 3D modeling and create your simple model, prepare a scene where you put it, prepare materials to use as texture, add lights to the scene, prepare a camera and eventually create output in the form of images and animations. The course is very suitable as an introduction to the world of 3D graphics in general, can continue in any other 3D software.
