Blender 3d is a free, open source, full fledged 3d program downloadable from the internet. Unfortunately, it can be a fairly intimidating at first! This course is a beginner's intro to Blender, covering such materials as thinking in 3d space, navigating around the user interface, and the basics of 3d lighting, rendering, texturing, and animation. This is a perfect course for those who have always wanted to get into 3d animation, but just had trouble getting up that first step.
Check out Ian's 2010 demo reel to get an idea of what's possible:
Ian Hubert has been a part of countless short and feature length films, becoming proficient in many aspects of production, from pre to post. By day he is a freelance CG guy, creating elements that 'look pretty darn real but aren't, really' for random corporations, low budget indie films, and a few artists. By night me writes music and stories and makes smoothies. He has also won some awards.
