Beginners Guide to Learning 3D Computer Graphics

Beginners Guide to Learning 3D Computer Graphics

If you’re interested in making either 3D animations visual effects video games Vr or 3D printing? Then this is the video for you this video will give you an introduction to 3D from a complete beginners? Perspective by answering these two important questions Where should I start and what software should I be using? So let’s start with this first one There’s a lot of buzzwords related to 3d. [you’ve] got 3D gaming 3D printing Animation Vr. Archive is visual effects and many more, so if you’re confused [I] don’t blame you Well regardless of what field you want to specialize in a basic understanding of 3D is Necessary for all of these and what you learn in one field can often be transferred to another Like let’s say you made this one character Well that character could be rigged and animated to create an animated short Or it could be exported [to] a game engine and used as a playable character It could be 3D printed to make a little chess piece it could be injected into a Vr World or it could simply be rendered as a still image So getting started in any of these areas requires this basic understanding of 3D What are the basics well they could be summed up as follows? Modeling an object by creating a cage and moving it about till it forms the [shape] of your object textures or materials to make the surface look real when it’s rendered and Lighting to create a pleasing final image when it’s rendered These are what you could call the three building blocks of 3d now when you get more advanced. You’ll learn about other stuff like Animation or compositing but 95% of what you want to make in 3d, we’ll use these fundamentals and by the way if you’re [interested] in learning any of this stuff Stay to the end of the video and I’ll [suggest] a video series for you to start on So that’s where to start learning the fundamentals Now the next question that follows. This is a big one What software should I be using and this has made all the more daunting by the number of software choices? Now some people will say that you should be [using] whatever the large studios are using but there’s not really an industry standard studios today typically use a range of different software’s for different things and Some studios like pixar use their own in-house software that isn’t even available to the public But the good news is that if a studio likes your work. It doesn’t matter. What software you use Art is their number one [priority] [if] you’ve got a great Portfolio? You’re already in Provided they’re not on a tight deadline most studios will train you if you don’t already use the software that they do Case in point [you] on leonard who uses Blender when he got a job at animal logic on the Lego movie they used XSi so his first two weeks on the job was to learn it and Since he already knew the fundamentals of animation, and theory in Blender That was easily transferred to xSI and once he learned it. He was quickly up to speed with the rest of the studio So trust me [a] lot of beginners get hung up on using. What the studio’s use But it’s really not that important in my opinion your priorities for choosing a software should be one it’s inexpensive [especially] while learning to its functional to what you actually want it to do and three it’s easy to learn so it’s for these reasons that I recommend that everyone start with Blender and I don’t just say this because I happen to have [a] channel called Blender guru [I] say it for several reasons The first reason is that of all the choices blender is the only one which is 100% free you don’t have to buy expensive software licenses or apply for Limited student discounts, it’s free and it always will be Now when you’re just starting out This is [really] important because you don’t yet know if you’ll even like 3d yet I’m just [being] realistic here because I know people it assumed that the only way to learn 3D was to enroll at a college spend upWards of $100,000 in student loans pay for expensive software licenses and then after two years have the sudden realization The 3D wasn’t what they expected Now if they had started learning Blender at home Followed some free YouTube tutorials. They would have spent $0 and Honestly, they [probably] would have enjoyed it more So blenders free but the next natural thought then is is blender as good as the expensive alternatives After all what’s all that money go to if it’s not to make them better Well, just like how wikipedia crusts and carter money doesn’t always equal better Blunder is developed by volunteers around the world which has its pros and cons but one of the advantages is [that] you often get features that users truly want [whereas] a public company often need to do a cost-benefit analysis to justify development time to their shareholders But the real secret [sauce] of Blender And this is the thing that really separates it from other open source software’s is the open movies Ton Roosendaal who is the creator and founder of Blender? Realize that without a real project to test blender on that [they] never know what features were necessary to make Blender production ready So in 2005 he came up with the idea of open movies Short films that were made with blender so they could learn the crucial features that artists need They started with elephants dream in 2005 which Led them to develop the compositor Then big buck bunny which helped them to develop for rendering syntel help them develop smoke simulation tears of steel for camera tracking and visual effects and Cosmos laundromat for improved painting and performance among other things there’s even more open movies I haven’t mentioned yet But if you want to binge watch some great short films while also seeing what blender can do I recommend watching [Sin] [til] cosmos laundromat? Common on Des – you can click the buttons here to watch them directly These open movies have helped [len] to go from being a low-key hobbyist tool to something. That’s truly Production-ready with Blender you could render photorealistic images model and Sculpt characters create realistic environments Architecture Fire smoke Fluid object simulations camera tracking compositing and much much more Tony derose from Pixar said that blender can do almost everything that pixar? In-house software can do and that a bunch of guys who use blender in their garage will be the next [pixar] So that’s what Blender can do Before I close I’ll mention the final reason that I think beginners should start with Blender And that’s the community in terms of search volume Blender dominates YouTube with several YouTubers like myself regularly making free tutorials on characters environments cars or virtually anything you want to make I’ve Heard from users of other packages that this is one of Blenders very strong points The community seems to want to give back and as a result you’ll find people online That are constantly going out of their way to offer help There’s an active Blender subreddit a dedicated blender stack exchange [a] blender news site and a blender [artform] So if you’re looking to get started in 3d blender is a very solid choice now I personally have been using blender for 12 years, but I started in the exact same position that you’re in right [now] I taught myself how to use Blender by following some free tutorials that I found online But today, I teach others to do the same so through this Youtube channel Blender guru I make Blender tutorials And I show people how to use blender so to help beginners like yourself what I’ve done is I’ve created a special YouTube course [that] will show you a complete Introduction to Blender so how to use the interface and then how to do everything that I just mentioned so the basics of modeling Texturing and lighting and how to create your very first scene, so if you’re complete [beginner], and you’re looking to get started in Blender I recommend giving it a watch which you can do right here by clicking That little button and that will take you there otherwise. Thank you for watching and I hope to see you in the next video. Bye

  1. Thank you so much for this information… I may not have a PC now but I will get it only and for BLENDER..
    Thank you infinity beyond for giving us hope at the end of your video…Everything starts with difficulty only , we will become the master by practising anything!!!…
    Thank you soooooo much brother…
    Love from India…😘😘😘💕


  3. 5:05 no Blender isn't as good as Maya and Houdini. Maybe it is as good as maya at some topics but not as Houdini its better as Houdini in some topics but the simulations are just bad like Fire explosions Water

  4. 이걸 이제야 알게되다니 ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ 정말 이 채널을 만든 당신에게 감사하고 또 감사합니다ㅠㅠㅠ

    Thank you so much for creating this channel, and thank you very channel.

  5. i have absolutely no experience even on drawing things… can i start with blender? Using basic shapes or pre-rendered objects etc..?

  6. I just want to try because (as you can see on my channel) I understand stop motion, and this is kinda like virtual stop motion

  7. Photorealistic water doesn't have bubbles in it. People tell me its blenders technical limitation. Booleans just ruin your mesh. Video editor is not much of video editor. Always some bugs. Blender is great but it was a very painful experience for me.

  8. hi idol, Do you know on how to make object appear in customized time? because when i add a mesh its always appear from 0 till the end of frame… I want the mesh only appear in the time which i want.. do you know how? thanks in advance

  9. Thank you for this video! It was very informative I have learned a lot! Visit @mediaartssbcc and check out students work!

  10. Blender is great. I just started learning a couple weeks ago and so far I can't see how $2000 a year software could possibly be that much better. It can't possibly have more features. Blender does everything. Even if you want to get into coding it can accommodate.

  11. When ever I click where you tell me it doesn't take me anywhere can I get these links please?

  12. blender is very high quality and is an amazing price(as in free)
    but id say its problem is it is not self explanatory, one of the more important things is being self explanatory. often times people will give up especially since its not button oriented but key and combination/ shortcut oriented. it is often difficult to memorize it all and be able to pay attention to what you're doing.

  13. Have never animated before but I am very interested in doing it. Any recommendations on what computer I should get or parts I would need?

  14. Excellent, definitely Blender 3D is the best option. By the way, the gingerbread cookie brought me old memories.

  15. could you recreate this beginner tutorial using blender 2.8 so that it can be easy for beginners to get started with blender 2.8

  16. I study product design and they have taught us how to use Alias (autodesk). Is it being used to do 3D models anymore? Because if not i’m willing to learn to use a new software! Thank you

  17. Hi Andrew!

    Now that the stable public v2.8 is released after a long development phase, would you consider updating your course to use v2.8?

    I would be keen see that happen soon, if that's what you are considering right now!

    Thank you for all your contribution to this open-source community~!

  18. I litterally shivering watching your video. i wanted to learn it so bad. i'm 25 and just figure out what i really want to do in my life. thankyou, you help me open the door to my passion. What is the minimum specification of computer you need to learn this?

  19. Man, I made that gingerbread following that (today ancient) tutorial back then. I've been several years from using Blender, need to be back to it for a project now. I'm really proud that I started using this amazing software in those years. I've seen Blender change it's UI. I learned how to make a mountain with snow texture with this guy Andrew Price. Can't describe how nice is to see Blender 2.8 today. And it's free.

  20. Blender Guru, I thought he was from IDN, but apparently he came from a foreigner.because he named his channel Blander Guru.

  21. Guru, i have a favor to ask.
    I am an electrical and electronics engineer and also a PhD research scholar, and for presentation purpose i would like to make explanatory animations…
    Kindly direct me how and which software should help me learn it fast.

  22. I'm a newbie in 3d animation and downloaded unreal engine 4's matinee editor. It looked soo Damn complicated that I almost gave up until I saw this video. The thing that makes blender easy is the fact that tutorials are easily available compared to others….!

  23. Need help with volunteers for a multi-team project in modding The Elder Scrolls Skyrim and if your the right candidate they will train you and if your experience they would love to have you! Here is their website to learn more – https://beyondskyrim.org/

  24. I don't understand why everyone says that the cost of the software is an issue for students… there are alternatives you know… sometimes the software fairy just magically installs it on my PC for free…

  25. I’m 15 years old and I started learning about graphics when I was like 10 years old and I started with cenima 4d by tutorials right now I’m learning by taking courses i now know how to model and texture but still didn’t learn how to animate I learned photoshop illustrator and indesign to but the most important one is photoshop for textures the software I use is maya and I didn’t pay for it but I actually managed to hack it and use it for free anyways when I watched blender tutorials it looks more easier than maya and I think I will learn how to use it but after I finished my courses .

  26. Such an amazing video, Thankyou for sharing your knowledge with us XD It inspires people that they can do great stuff without having to spend tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars and still love the results.
    Great job, keep it up
