Hello Blender Community!

With the historic release update of 2.8 (and now, 2.9), Blender has never been more in-use and relevant across industry professionals and hobbyists alike. ST3, a lead developer for best-selling, Blender addon: Hard Ops, knows exactly how difficult it is to find and gather information about addon creation and has recorded his knowledge and methods into a video series just for you. This cut-to-the-chase style, comprehensive course will show you how to get started using Python for Blender Addon development.

But who is this course for?

If you are an individual seeking a path into the Blender Addon Community, but don’t know where to begin; this is the course for you. If you are a studio using Blender and hoping to tailor the experience with custom tools to better suit your needs; this is the course for you. If you simply have an interest in improving your own workflows and pipelines; this is still the course for you. With the included Python Crash Course section, anyone familiar with Blender3D and a basic coding interest (any language) will be capable of following along and creating their first tool before they know it.

Within the video course you’ll find the following, including all code samples:

  • VC-Code live link
  • Python Crash Course
  • Functional programming
  • Classes
  • Scripting Interface
  • Operators
  • Bmesh
  • Modals
  • Shaders
  • Traceback
  • Addon prefs
  • Blender UI
