About This Class

Do you want to learn how to  use the Particle System in Blender to create awesome renders or animations? Do you want to feel confident while using particles? By the end of this course you will have an understanding of the functions in the particle system.  In the first couple sections we will be focusing on the settings and what each one does. Then we will move onto creating grass in Blender. Section 5 we will be taking a look at fluid particles. We will also be creating an animation using the fluid particles!   

Section 6 we will be making an animation of low poly smoke. I am also giving away a train model to help sell the scene a little bit more.

Section 7 we will create realistic hair using the Particle System. I will be showing you exactly how to add in the hair, comb it into place and make it look good. 

Learning Blender can be very hard when you first start that's why I built this course for all levels beginner to advanced. I will be showing you step by step on what to do and why we do it. From the basics of modeling to advanced techniques like creating grass with particle systems.

The program that is used in this course is Blender 3D.

Blender 3D is a free open source program that allows you to create literally anything on the computer!

You can download by going to their website.

I can't wait to see the renders and animations you create!

Thanks

Very useful introduction/refresher on particle systems. Clear audio and good, moderate pace. I would definitely recommend.
