Pixeltrain - Blender Fundamentals Fast Forward is released!


pixeltrain3d writes:

After 5 months of intensive work, we are very proud to present our new publication "pixeltrain - Blender Fundamentals - Fast Forward“.

In 114 lessons with a duration of 20+ hours, Helge takes you through the complete fundamentals of Blender and the basic workflows you need to know to get started with this amazing free software. This training is designed to get you up and running quickly, enabling you with the skills needed to work effectively in this incredibly powerful 3d package.

Additionally, it lays the foundation of essential concepts and paradigms to understand more advanced topics for other areas and workflows of Blender 3d down the road.

The focus of this publication is NOT building a fancy eye-catchy example scene. It’s concepted as a step-by-step logical structured learning curriculum, with deep explanations of concepts, workflows and tool options.

The lessons are packed with information and are meant to watch them several times, make your own experiments and come back later when you are working on your own projects and need some refreshing on several topics.

We hope you find this publication useful and we can help you on your personal journey as an 3d or vfx artist.
