Creating 3D environments in Blender

This course helps you creating wonderful environment scenes, organizing your workflow, and find the right inspiration.

Creating 3D environments in Blender

After four years, the creating 3D environments course, is now finally here for Blender 2.81. Thousands of students participated in the first version of this course and there were a lot of requests for a follow-up course. Prepare for a new chapter in the world of 3D environments!

The profession continues

For centuries, making environments has been something that many artists do to impress other people. Since the advent of computer graphics there is a new wave of designers studying this lovely profession. This course reveals some fundamental lessons from the old painting masters. Use the course to get the max out Blender and learn to create high quality 3D environments.

Starting from scratch

The complexity of many scenes is often holding people back from creating environmental scenes in 3D. Most designers drop-out halfway and are then facing their unfinished work because it takes a lot of time and work to create scenes with architecture and nature. I faced this many times, but because I was so inspired by medieval architecture, I took the time to learn how to create 3D environments in a way in which I could express myself. During this process I struggled hard and made many unnecessary choices that slowed down my progression. The power of this course is that it shows you exactly what you need to design 3D environments and which details you might want to avoid or postpone in order to make the most out of your own progression.

The road to perfection

We all want to create beautiful scenes, but making these scenes can be a big challenge. This course is not only a technical education, it also covers topics like focus, inspiration and organization. I believe that a well-organized focused designer, with the right inspiration, will be able to make every 3D dream come to life. This course is well documented and guides you through the process of creating 3D scenes in Blender 2.81.

From ruin to castle

This course will guide you through the new Blender 2.81 interface. Together we make our first steps in Blender. Slowly we start building objects and after one chapter you will be able to make a small dice scene. This warming-up is needed to get used to the workflow and make you comfortable with Blender and the things that will come. Shortly after that, we will jump into the node editor. We will start mixing textures, just like the old painting masters, to get decent looking results. We will apply the material on a ruin and build the first environment scene. Then we will start building a farmhouse in a medieval style. We will use the workbench for modeling, Eevee for the texture work and Cycles to render the scenes to get the max out of it. After finishing the farmhouse, we merge the building with a nature environment. We will create the trees with the sapling add-on, so you will not need any external plugins. There is a full chapter about creating nature assets and in the final castle scene we will merge everything together to make a wonderful environmental scene. All content and textures come from Texture/HDRI Haven and are included in the course.

About me

My name is Rob Tuytel and I have been a environment designer for the past 13 years. I have a huge passion for the Dutch 17th century and mainly focus on medieval architecture. I run the platform Texture Haven together with Greg Zahl who also runs HDRI Haven. I recently completed my latest project Batavia 1627, a Realtime VR project for a Dutch museum. I love to study old environment paintings and use these as an inspiration for my work. You might know me from the Tears of Steel open Blender movie or from my previous environment course for Blender 2.79

Kinetic Typography in After Effects: Motion Graphics Course

Ever wanted to add motion to your video titles and text?

Kinetic typography is everywhere nowadays - in films, commercials, music videos, online courses. This 'motion typography' makes your videos look more professional and engaging. While it seems complicated, creating your own kinetic typography videos in Adobe After Effects is quite simple when broken down into the basic animations that are actually happening.

That's what this course is all about - breaking down a complicated motion graphics video, and teaching you how to animate each type of text animation.

What will you be able to do with this course?

  • Use traditional cuts to introduce new words
  • Reveal text with scale and position animation
  • Rotate and flip text onto the screen
  • Revolve text onto the screen (like they do in so many commercials!)
  • Improve animations with motion blur, easy ease, and graph editing
  • Export and upload your videos
  • Much more!

If you've ever wanted to jump right into creating kinetic typography videos, but didn't know how - this is the perfect course for you.

How does this course work?

This course is taught using Adobe After Effects. We used the latest Creative Cloud version of After Effects, but you can use any previous version (CS6 or earlier) because the process is the same. In this course, we dive right into creating kinetic typography in After Effects. While it will be easier to follow along if you have some experience with After Effects, it is not a requirement. If this course goes too quickly or seems too advanced for you, try enrolling in our full Kinetic Typography or Complete Adobe After Effects courses, which are for complete After Effects beginners.

Throughout this course, you will be working on your own kinetic typography project. Each lesson breaks down one scene from the sample video, going over a new technique in revealing text (cut, scale, position, and rotation animations).

What bonuses are included in this course?

Follow along by using the downloadable After Effects project file. This way, you can follow along with everything we do in the course.

Why should you enroll?

You should enroll if you want to quickly learn the basic building blocks of creating advanced and intricate text animations. Phil, the instructor, is always available to help out - as if you were in a live course. So if you ever get stuck or need something explained, you will find an answer. By the way, Phil has taught over 100,000 students here on Udemy and really knows how to explain complex ideas - like motion typography - to beginners like you.

We can't wait to see you in the course!

How to Animate Logos for Companies & Brands

Ever wanted to make cool animations but don't think you are creative enough?  Or ever wanted to learn "how to make money online" but not interested in mumbo jumbo sales pages? Learn a real skill that provides real value to businesses-- no creativity needed.  Our course will introduce you to the basic elements of motion graphics and teach you how to apply these simple motion recipes to lucrative logo animations.

There are many different ways to make money with motion graphics.  In my eyes, the top three are: 1. Explainer Videos (advanced); 2. MicroVideos for social media (moderate); and 3. Living Logos (beginner).  Most people begin their After Effects career attempting to create a difficult long form explainer video- which almost always leads to frustration and burnout.  Instead, it's better to begin with simple projects and build slowly from there.  Which is why we recommend starting with Living logos. 

Living logos are the easiest (and most immediately profitable) form of motion graphics to begin.  Unlike explainer videos which require in depth knowledge of the entire After Effects Application, Living Logos only require you to master a few simple workflows.  So instead of overloading you with unnecessary information, this course instead focuses on the bare bones.  The basic building blocks of animation that you can immediately apply to paying Living Logo projects.

Extras:

  • Content will always be up to date.

  • Access simple looping GIFs that explain common After Effects obstacles

Do you wish to create your own animated film one day? Or perhaps make your own game? But don't how to go about it or where to even start? If so, you may be looking around for cheap (and hopefully free) 3D software.

Blender is one such tool. It is a free, open-source 3D software that can do everything from 3D modeling, animation, rendering and game development. The tool continues to grow with newer and more awesome features being added every so often. Their current feature set is packed and rivals the most expensive 3D software today. One would have to see the awesome projects and quality renderings created by people who have not spent a cent.

In this course, you will learn the basics of (nearly) everything in Blender. Without needing to invest a whole lot of time or money, you will learn how to get started with 3D modeling, lighting, animation, sculpting, rendering, and physics to name a few with exercises spread throughout so that you can get your first experience with the software and gain overall confidence along the way. You will be one step closer to mastering Blender.

What's in this course?

The course is aimed to provide a gentle, yet thorough, introduction to Blender 3D so that you will go away with the confidence of working on your own dream projects. We won't just be looking at what each control does and call it done. The course provides a number of exercises (or mini-projects) on all the main components of 3D of which you are strongly encouraged to follow along and get your first experience with Blender. 

Specifically,

  • You will learn how to navigate through Blender and get comfortable with the user interface.
  • You will learn the bare basics of 3D modeling, lighting, animation, materials, texturing, rendering, sculpting, particles and physics.
  • You will work on small easy-to-follow exercises to help solidify your learning and gain your first experiences making something with Blender.
  • You can ask me for help anytime if you get stuck trying to do something.

By the end of this course, you will have completed your first few mini-projects with Blender. Since we cover nearly everything in Blender, this will raise your confidence

With over 60+ lectures, there is so much to learn. Don't let this overwhelm you though. The course is designed to make the learning curve as smooth and as easy as possible so that you don't have to pull out all your hair in frustration in an attempt to learn Blender on your own.

Who is this course for?

This will be perfect for the absolute beginner of Blender and the world of 3D in general. There are no nasty jargon anywhere in this course and everything will be explained in a simple easy-to-understand manner.

You are not expected to know anything about Blender. You can start this course with no prerequisites (as we'll cover how to download and install Blender). If there was one prerequisite, it would be to have some passion for 3D (or whichever project you would need Blender for). That motivation will help push you to master Blender so that your dream movie or game can come to life.

What is the expected outcome after the course?

By the end of the course, you can expect to have a good understanding of the major components of Blender. You will gain experience and hopefully confidence in being able to pull off your own 3D projects without having to pull out your hair in frustration.

After that, the outcomes are endless. As you continue to work on your projects, you start to gain confidence in learning more advanced stuff. At this stage, making movies and/or game projects becomes a thing of reality. You could even meet one of the requirements for a Blender-related job!

Best of all, the course is designed to be flexible and will continue to expand as new features get added in or if you feel that I haven't covered an aspect that you would like to learn.

A little bit about me - better said by Stephan:

This isn't my first course with Louay, and there are good reasons for that. Louay's courses are some the most well thought out, intelligently designed, and clearly structured for all levels of experience…

One of my favourite aspects of Louay's instructions is that, while engaging the students, he doesn't waste time with verbal nonsense. As a student you will not have your time wasted with poorly edited videos with audio content that has nothing to do with the course. But don't read that as Louay isn't engaging or lacking interest. It's the opposite. He wants his students to learn and achieve a higher skill set in After Effect.

Another top remark about Louay is that he is always there for his students. I've read several questions from other students (and even asked a few myself), and Louay's response time is great.

So, get ready to jump in and be challenged.

Stephan S Nilson (Louay’s student in After Effects CC: Complete Course from Novice to Expert)

Upgrade Your Skills:

After Effects presents a wide range of applications. Transitions is one of them. Mastering this unique skill is effective and rewarding. You will become a proficient in understanding how transitions work, which tools and methods to use and how to rapidly create them.

Create Your Own Character in Blender

Students: 41500, Price:  Free

In this course we create a simple character in 3D. We quickly and easily apply a rig for easy animation.

We begin by setting up some background images to use as a reference.

This course involves modelling the character from a simple plane so we use the mirror modifier to speed the process up.

We quickly get the form of the character and add his hands, form his ears, model some teeth and even model him a pair of simple shoes. We continue by creating some hair and forming eye brows.

When we are happy with how our character looks we move on and add an armature using an add-on within blender. We position the rig and generate control bones for use in animating our character. We briefly look at weight painting and how much influence some bones have over certain parts of the character.

*****FUTURE UPDATES PLANNED TO INCORPORATE NEW BLENDER 2.8 INTERFACE, TOOLS AND FEATURES*****

This course has been created specifically to teach you the fundamentals of 3D art. It isn't a bundle of videos describing every single tool bar and slider, that's what Google is for. It's a project based course designed to teach you all the basics you need to know to create 3D art in practically any 3D software. We'll start with a little bit of theory, then dive into looking at 3D software, we'll install and explore our software and set it up to make learning as easy as possible.

For this particular course we will be using Blender. This powerful software package is open source and FREE!! This means that there is no additional cost for dong this course, everything you need is included in Blender.

Blender comes complete will the following tools:

  • Full 3D modeling suite, including digital scultping and texture painting

  • Node Based material editor

  • Cycles Render Engine, super fast and capable of stunning results

  • A built-in Node based compositor for stills or video

  • Video editing suite

  • Game engine

The skills you learn in this course will easily transfer to most other software packages. I am not going to teach you how to model specifically in Blender, the techniques to learn here are universal. So whether you become a game artist in 3ds Max, an environment artist in Maya, a texture artist in Substance Designer or a compositor in Nuke, you will have the fundamental skills to kick start your mastery of any other software!!

This isn't just a video training course either. I want this journey into 3D art to be meaningful for all my students. Students will be encouraged to create and share their own work throughout the course, either on our Facebook Group  or directly to me via email (complete3dartist@gmail.com) or Twitter (@darkokubra). You will receive feedback, hints and tips either publicly or privately and any feedback you give the course will be carefully considered and any great suggestions will be implemented into the course.

The course consists 3 full projects:

  • A still life scene, to get you comfortable will modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering and compositing. Step by step you'll cover all the basic tools and workflows, slowly and in detail, to ensure you retain all the knowledge and skills to use these tools in your own projects.

  • A guitar, modeled to scale using plans, this will push your modeling skills up a level or two and introduce you to texture painting directly onto a 3D model using Blender.

  • An interior scene, this is where you can learn some sculpting techniques, experiment with composition and practice your modeling, shading and lighting skills.

As the student base for this course grows, the course will grow too. Every student has lifetime access to this course and that includes feedback from me whenever you need it. But I will also create additional projects to teach the ever evolving techniques used by professional 3D artists. And wth the future release of Blender 2.8, look for additional videos on Blender's new tools, features and interface shortly after it's official release.

This course is intended to be the most comprehensive, artistically driven course for 3D art on Udemy.  Don't believe me, listen to what my students have said about the course:

***** Don't hesitate taking this class. This is truly a class and not a tutorial. *****

***** Thorough explanations and examples with the encouragement to experiment and practice on your own. *****

***** The course is engaging challenging and the explanations and work flow are fantastic. *****

***** I love this course, it is so complete and easy to follow *****

***** This course is a gold-mine of information *****

***** I recommend it to everyone who wants to master Blender *****

So why not join me and I'll teach you everything you need to know to be a great 3D artist!
