Tutorial: Background Removal in Blender


BlendMaster writes:

Hey Everyone! Today we will go over how to use Blender as a photo editing software. I will show you how to remove the background of an image, similar to Photoshop, and then render a transparent background in both the internal render engine, and cycles render engine. I will also show you how to take that image and use it's alpha channel, so that when you render it out in a scene, the background will be transparent instead of black.
I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and learn something new!

I've been using Blender for quite a while now. I love Blender and its my passion, that is why I try to share everything I know about it with you guys. There is so much that Blender can do. It is not just a tool for 3D modelling, it can be used for photo editing, animating, and creating games as well. Over the years, I have explored Blender's capabilities and pushed them to the limit, and now I'm here to share those tricks with you. ;)
