Workshop: Intro to blender: 3-D Modeling & Animation
Wednesday, April 3, at 7 pm in the New Media Center (NMC), Lewis Library Building
Join us for an exciting and useful introduction to 3-D modeling and animation using blender software! blender is an open-source 3-D computer graphics software that can be used to create visual effects, video games, animated video, forensic reconstruction, and interactive 3-D applications. The session will cover:
• Interface overview: Navigation Menus, Blender modes, Keyboard and Mouse (Hotkeys, etc.), and Model Views
• Object Modeling (Object Mode & Edit Mode): Vertices, lines, and surfaces. Rotate, scale, and move. Meshes and textures.
• Basic Animation: Cameras, Lighting, Timeline and dopesheet (keyframes, animation editors, etc.)
Our instructor: Nikitas Tampakis is a junior in the computer science department experienced in 3D modeling, and related software. This past summer Nikitas used blender to produce animations of ancient building sites in Polis, Cyprus that were featured in the Princeton University Art Museum’s City of Gold exhibition.
