As part of the mini briefs project we have been introduced to an open-source program called Blender. Blender is a great software that can be used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications and video games.
Here is an example of the detailed work blender is capable of creating;
We started by doing some basic tutorials on how to create 3D objects and how to move and duplicate them within a 3D space. We also learnt keyboard commands that allowed us to do simple functions such as repeating the last command, moving the object along axis, and seeing your model in the cameras point of view. We also looked at how in ‘Cycles Render’ mode we can split the screen in order to see different previews, including an object preview and a low resolution render preview.
