Target Audience: Those with little or no experience with 3D modeling or rendering, or no experience with Blender.

Expectations: This class will provide information and experience to lessen the learning curve for using Blender and give an introduction to the capabilities of Blender. 3D modeling, animation and rendering principles will be covered in the simplest of terms.

Disclaimer: This class will not cover all aspects of every feature or clever use for blender. It will not teach advanced modeling techniques. It will not go into the history of Blender which can be read well in other places on the internet. This class will not give you talent.

Topics:

  • User Interface for V2.65
  • Hot Keys!
  • Object Primitives
  • Mesh and Curve objects
  • Materials and textures
  • Editing objects
  • Lighting and rendering
  • Simple object animation

Links:
http://www.blender.org/ get v2.65
http://www.inkscape.org/ get 0.48.x (whatever version works for you)
http://www.gimp.org/ get 2.8.x (if you have Photoshop and want to use that, it’s ok but just know the example work is using gimp.)

On each website you will find software or links to the software for most every platform the software is available for.
Because time will be tight, having this loaded and running on your machine will be greatly appreciated.
