Blender is a powerful open-source tool for 2D and 3D graphics, full-on animation, compositing, and post-production. It is used to create movies and special effects, even in HD. In Blender Essential Training, Roger Wickes offers new Blender users a thorough explanation of its interface, tools, and features. He also demonstrates practical techniques and shows how to access the online and openndash;content resources of this amazing tool. Specific 3D techniques covered include navigating in 3D space, using cameras and lights, and rendering. Roger demonstrates how to rig, animate, and composite a character over live action. Exercise files accompany the course.
Exercise files are available to premium subscribers of lynda.com or to those who purchase the DVD. The Exercise Files folder will have these subfolders numbered according to the chapters that we'll be going through in this title. You will also have a library file, lib, which contains a couple of subfolders that I want to point out to you. The first is the images subfolder, which contains images that we'll be working on and processing. I've organized those into four subfolders according to whether they contain images of people, places or things or the special garden spot in our Sequencing chapter.
Also included are some objects that you'll be reusing, plug-ins that will be dynamically loaded, some rigs and textures along with any audio that we might want to separate out. Feel free to explore this library and use these assets to come up with your own creative inspirations.
