Day 7- Introduction to Blender Final Assignment - Animating Aircraft

Animation #Blender #Introduction

Introduction to Blender 3D.

Hello Folks

Welcome to the Last Chapter of Introduction Series about Blender.
Today we are going to talk about mainly the basics of animation in Blender.
Its not about the principles of animation, but the introduction to how to work with keyframes and available commands in Blender to add some motion to your scenes. We will continue with the Aircraft model from previous chapter.
This is going to be a long chapter, I have tried to fit in as much information as possible to introduce the Keyframing process. So Buckle up and lets dive into it and add life to our model.

You can download the reference images from the link below.

Welcome to my blog. My name is Akis Mparekas. I am a freelance web developer from Greece. At the same time I am taking my first steps in game development (unity) and animation (blender). I also create cool stuff, either for work or for fun. When I have time, I write tutorials and I blog.
