The more general term computer-generated imagery (CGI) encompasses both static scenes and dynamic images. Modern computer animation usually uses 3D computer graphics to generate a three-dimensional picture. Blender is the free and open source 3D creation suite and it supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.

This 5-hour software class will take place in Austin Public’s Edit Lab and cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Blender 
  • Object Mode / Edit Mode
  • Introduction to Hard Surface Modeling
  • Introduction to Materials and Shaders
  • Keyframe animation in Blender
  • Cycles / EEVEE render engines in Blender
  • Export settings
  • Render Animation
