Creators Workshop- 3D Animation with Steve Gilliland
Sat, April 22, 2017, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM EDT
Want to create your own worlds? Better yet, blow 'em up – and let the computer calculate the physics for explosions, smoke, and fire. This hands-on workshop will introduce beginners to Blender, a powerful, open-source 3D software that is available as a FREE download. A series of exercises will send you flying through 3D space. Learn the basics of sculpting your own sets and characters and how to animate and render your own 3D CGI videos. Anything is possible with animation!
If you are bringing your own computer, please download the latest version of Blender 2.78a prior to the workshop. The download is available for free at https://www.blender.org/
