Join Quelab member Kevin Wood as he gives us an introduction to using Blender (a popular 3D modelling software package) and how to do your own 3D scene modelling.
- This will be a Crash course in not only 3D modeling, but texturing, lighting, and rendering. We will create and render a complete scene!
- Must bring your own computer, can be Windows, Mac, Linux or FreeBSD. (Netbooks and low end laptops discouraged)
- 3 or more button mouse highly encouraged, keyboard with numpad is also highly encouraged.
The latter is due to the advanced features which we will be taking advantage in Blender; the number pad and the mouse-wheel make using the software to it’s fullest extent very much easier. More RAM and processor power is also better, as rendering takes a goodly amount of resources. While it is possible to do without, it makes it take longer!
Join us on 9 February at 1pm for this class which will go through a rendering complete scene. This class will probably take the full three hours. You can download the full Blender suite here (current version is 2.65a).
