Description

Hello everyone and welcome to the Blender 3D Fluid Simulation Guide. In this course you will learn everything there is to know about the fluid simulation in Blender. We will talk about what you need to make a simulation, how to make it and what the best settings are. In the Section 2 we will be going over the Domain object and what every single setting does.  In the next section we will be discussing the fluid types and how they interact with the simulation. After that there is 3 different tutorials in which we create an entire scene with materials, lighting and models. One of the tutorials is the thumbnail for this course! The another one is an animation of fluid going through an obstacle course. In this tutorial we model the obstacles, add materials and lighting, animate the camera and simulate the fluid.  If you are looking to advice your skills in this area of Blender this course is perfect for you!

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who want to learn Blender 3D
  • Anyone who wants to learn about simulations in Blender
  • Anyone who wants to advance there skills in Blender

Different Fluid Types
6 Lectures 24:43

In this lecture we will be discussing the regular old fluid type in Blender!

The Fluid Type
04:34

In this video you will learn all about the obstacle type and how it effects your simulation.

Obstacles
02:18

Inflow is quite cool and it can be used for many things. In this video you will learn all about that.

What is Inflow?
02:42

Outflow is a type that I hardly every use but it can be useful at times. So in this lecture you will learn what it does.

What is Outflow?
02:46

In this video we take a look at the Control Type in Blenders Fluid Simulation. This is an awesome feature and it can create some really cool stuff!

Water Obstacle Course Tutorial
6 Lectures 23:51

In this video we start the modeling of the fluid obstacle course. We add in some objects for the water to be bounced off of and more.

Modeling the Obstacles
07:27

In this video we will be creating the domain and the inflow objects to create the fluid for our scene in Blender.

Creating the Fluid
04:06

In this lecture we will be making the materials for our objects. Most of the objects are very simple materials such as diffuse and glossy.

Making the Materials
03:39

This video we animate the camera to follow the fluid going down through our obstacle course!

Animating the Camera
03:31

In this video we bake our scene and render it out in Blender!

Rendering out the Animation
03:27

In this video we sequence out the render that we did in the last video. We jump into the Video Sequence Editor and render it out.

Blender Made Easy

I started doing graphic design and 3D renderings about 5 years ago. About 2 years into it I started my own Youtube channel which I upload tutorials. The programs that I mostly use are Blender 3D and Photoshop. 

On the side I am doing freelance work and photography.  Recently I have been focusing on creating online courses which I have been really enjoying. Currently I have over 400 students and it is growing everyday.
