Description

In this course you will learn all about the rigid body simulation in Blender. We will be going through each setting and I will be showing you what it does and why. At the end of the course there are 3 different tutorials in which we use the rigid body simulation to create: a really cool wallpaper/background, an animation of a sphere, and a wall shattering. From rigid body dynamics to rigid body constraints learn all there is to know about the Rigid Body Simulation in Blender!

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.
