This is an unscripted learning session where Colin will explore the the physics simulations, staring with fluid dynamics in blender. There will be an exploration of various related tools and experimentation with rendering. This session is unscripted and casual, the instructor's focus will be on learning together. Participants are asked to become familiar with Blender and try the fluid simulation in advance (although that is optional). We will encourage participants to share what they learned.
What is Blender
Blender is a free and open-source 3D computer graphics software toolset used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, motion graphics, interactive 3D applications, and computer games. Blender's features include 3D modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, raster graphics editing, rigging and skinning, fluid and smoke simulation, particle simulation, soft body simulation, sculpting, animating, match moving, rendering, motion graphics, video editing, and compositing.
