Course Objective

One of the most powerful and accessible 3D software available, Blender is an open source software that users can use unlimitedly at no cost. Its features include modelling, rendering, animation, sculpting, geometry nodes, Python programming, physics simulation, 2D animation, and more. In terms of functionality and performance, it is comparable to the commonly used 3D software in the industry, such as Maya, 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, and so on. Most importantly, from beginners to professional digital artists, Blender
can meet the needs of its wide spectrum of users without the inhibitions imposed by cost and licensing issues.

Programme Highlights

The course will start from the basics and guide students through learning and using Blender for building models, mapping, lighting, setting camera angles, rendering and basic animation. In addition, we will introduce and demonstrate some unique features of Blender, such as sculpting, image compositing, geometry nodes, and physics simulation, so that students can gain a deeper understanding of Blender and pursue future learning goals according to their own interests.

Student Testimonial

Ms. Angela Lai

I attended HKPC’s five-day workshop to learn Blender and benefitted greatly from it.
Many thanks to our tutor Stanley for teaching us. I received valuable experience from fellow students coming from different learning and teaching backgrounds.
I teach secondary level Visual Arts and I think Blender resembles Canvas. Both invite us to learn the wonders of 3D spaces using digital methods. I learnt how to sculpt characters, perform UV unwrapping on faces and apply textures.
From simply sticking stickers onto my own airplane model, to experimenting with set animation settings, my imagination was allowed to run freely beyond static paintings on paper.
In the future, I plan to enter a short film competition with a blender-made piece. By then, I believe that I will have a more thorough understanding of character modelling.
