Modellers – Week 10

Hi folks, hard to believe this was our last regular session of 2019. Next week is our Christmas pizza party and show-and-tell.

This week we took a photo of a cereal box and UV mapped it to a simple cube which we scaled to the appropriate proportions. One we made our model we built a very basic studio setup and did our first render with a camera and a light.

Here are the video instructions:

Here is the final render from my model:

The file for this week can be download from here.

Once we return in January I’ll be using Blender 2.81, instead of 2.80 which we have been using, so everyone should try to upgrade if they can by going here.

 

Explorers Week 10 – Making Music – Electric Piano

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for coming again on Saturday, Ruaidhrí ran the session this week and I am sure you were all glad not to have to listen to me for a change.

He did musical instruments and should you how to create variables for each one so that you could have a note repeat.

No notes this week but below is the code that was used.

This coming Saturday will be run by Eoin and will be Christmas themed based! This will be our last session before our Christmas party so dust off those Christmas Hats! and Jumpers

 

Martha, Ruaidhrí, Iseult, Julie and Eoin

Modellers – Week 9

This week, we took the mug we’d created the week before and UV unwrapped it again. We’d covered that last week too, and it’s in last week’s notes, but because we’d rushed a little we went over it again.

One the model was unwrapped, we created an image texture and manually painted it. We then used the GIMP image editing program to add an image to our texture.

Step-by-step notes can be found here:
