- Use what you've learned to create your own production-quality shots, whether it's for film, television or personal projects.
- You will need to have a very basic understanding of Blender. In other words, how to download it and install it. You should also know how to select objects and move around in the viewport. I show the rest, so you won't have to worry about that!
In 1980, Stanley Kubrick released The Shining in theaters, a horror film based on Stephen King's novel of the same name. Today, you'll learn how to recreate the iconic elevator scene using Blender, the free and open-source 3D program. With Blender, you'll learn how to model and texture the scene, including adding a fluid system and a dynamic paint system to make the scene come alive. In the end, we'll use Blender's Video Sequence Editor to color correct the render, add slow motion and render to a final video.
- This course is for Blender users who have basic to intermediate knowledge and want to expand their skills.
In this video, I introduce you to myself and the course. You'll learn what we're going to do throughout the videos and what you can expect.
In this video, I show how I set up Blender to make things easier for myself. We'll dive into the User Preferences and change just a few things. If you like how Blender is set up by default, or if you have your own preferences that you already use, then you won't even have to watch this. However, I do enable the Pie Menu add-on, so if you don't know what that is, go ahead and watch! :)
Let's learn how to set up a camera and match it to our image. Doing this will help us get the right camera angle for the shot.
In this video, we discover Textures.com, a place to download the textures we'll use for this course. It's free to sign up and download the textures. I can't supply the textures as I don't own them. Make sure to find the links to the exact texture pages in the Resources.zip file in the first Modeling section.
Learn how to add an HDRI map in Blender while also adding a few point lights to illuminate our scene.
In this video, we learn how to use the fluid system in Blender and how it works.
Learn the very basics of Dynamic Paint using Blender in this quick introduction. We'll learn how objects require a brush and a canvas and how they interact with each other.
