Would you like to learn how animate and simulate two complete Halloween scenes in Blender in addition to video editing them to make a movie?
Now, what if I told you I have a course to do just that on Artstation?
‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ will see you creating two spooky Halloween scenes inclusive of simulations and fully animated elements.
This course will give you access to just over 7 hours of 3D art.
Learn how to build Halloween-themed witch cauldrons with boiling magic potions or simulate smoke over a stairway featuring carved pumpkins in just 41 lessons.
This course will see you learn all the techniques pros use and how they use them. Video editing and movie composition in Blender will be a central part of this course's learning objectives for the first time!
Through reading this course description you will find out:
- What you want to learn about 3D modelling;
- What you are going to get through ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’, and;
- How the course will take your 3D modelling, animation, and simulation skills to the next level.
Why not celebrate this popular holiday with spooky Halloween renders? Whether it is Samhain or the height of summer, let’s have some fun while learning how the new simulation functions in Blender work!
This course will be your complete pathway from concept to seeing a living and breathing 3D scene on your computer screen in a way that we haven't done before.
Our 3D modelling focus will be on creating two Halloween scenes, each with a different potential for simulation. This will include simulating liquid using the example of a green magic potion bubbling away above a roaring simulated fire, as well as simulating smoke that spreads over a set of stairs in an ever so scary way.
Texturing and Materials
All in all, ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ will provide you with intensive learning all in one place, giving you access to over 8 textures, and 40 texture maps at 2 k resolution. This course will also teach you the basics of making your own materials and shaders using these textures.
‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ will teach you all about the gamma, hue, saturation, and some world Blender nodes.
Simulation is something new which we have never covered before until today. This is the best side of this ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ course. We will be learning all about the three major simulations in Blender. First, we will talk all about liquid and displacement maps. You will be simulating a liquid that is in its boiling state.
You will also be finding out about how to simulate fire and how domains work. This will allow you to simulate fire realistically, changing the way it looks depending on whether it is candlelight or a massive explosion. Likewise, we will be discovering how to give any scene that ominous feeling of impending death or spookiness in general. We will do that by simulating a moving cloud of smoke.
Since this ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ course will not cover just one but three different types of simulations, you will be rocking the simulation game in no time!
Animation & Video Editing
As part of this ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ course, you will learn how to use keyframes to key in different animations to the parts we want to animate. These will include our magic potion and flickering lights.
We will also be going over a part of the 3D modelling artist role that most courses do not cover – video editing in Blender. Creating realistic simulations is not time well spent if you cannot do anything with them afterwards. Our video editing lessons will be like a course within a course with more to come. You will come away with the know-how that will allow you to put your animations and simulations together to create an amazing short video clip.
Lighting & Rendering
By joining ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’, you will learn about specific types of in-built Blender lighting functionalities that will enhance the scary and dark feeling of our two Halloween scenes.
We will also be creating a portfolio render for any multimedia site you wish to upload your completed model to. Trust me when I say that having a short movie clip of your model, coupled with simulated and animated details will make you stand out by a mile.
‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ is a complete guide into using Cycles for lighting, rendering, shadow.
Rendering in Blender’s Eevee renderer will be discussed as well.
Course Resources & Freebies
The ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ course resource pack includes pumpkin Jack-o'-lantern reference faces, 2 sounds for each simulation to go along with its move clip, 8 textures, and 40 texture maps at 2 k resolution.
The best course navigation tool for ‘Blender VFX Liquid, Fire & Smoke’ will be included. The course handbook will give the control back to you and you will be able to fully streamline your learning process to your needs and wants seamlessly.
Join this course and come be part of a 3D modeling journey of over 7 hours of learning that will see you go away with not one but two portfolio pieces.
