About This Class

Blender is a full-featured 3D suite for images and animations. Among its endless possibilities you can also use it to create 3D texts that can be used for logos or intro animations.

In this class we will use the tools in Blender for creating texts, we will be adding new fonts, changing the color and posing the text into a scene. After that, we will take the final steps and render the final picture.

We will start from scratch, and I will show you the necessary basics of Blender so you can jump right in.
