Blender 3D modelling and animation

This hands-on workshop shows how to create 3D models in the free open source software Blender, setting up the virtual lights and cameras and render the result. Materials and animation are explained and also the realtime game engine when time permits.

Topics are

- modeling, the basic tools, subdivision surfaces
- organic forms with metaballs
- materials, textures, uv mapping
- types of lights
- animation, keyframes, curves, bones
- the new renderer Cycles

The level of the workshop will be adjusted to the audience but is meant to be an introduction to Blender. Participants should bring their laptops.
Duration is flexible and to be discussed
