This tutorial will help you with:

  • Preparing a model and it's materials for export

I've been busy in the audiovisual industry since 2000. During the first years I worked for Dutch public broadcasting. My job concentrated on administration of TV broadcasting processes and Video On Demand streaming. Being infected by audiovisual production, I decided to do the study Digital Film Making in 2008/2009. After graduation in July 2009, I started my own company creating corporate movies, music video's and stock footage. I got a great interest in 3D animation and composition. Much of my work is based on computer generated graphics. I use Blender as my primary software.
