Modelers – Video 7

Hi folks, here’s the second part of our spaceship video project, as promised. This is our last official video for the year and I just want to take the opportunity to say thanks for being such a creative and fun group. It’s been a pleasure.

Click here if you haven’t done Part 1 yet.

In this video we introduce a few new things:

  1. Rendering a video instead of a static image
  2. Using a “follow path” constraint to move an object along a pre-defined path
  3. Using a “track to” constraint to keep a camera pointing at a target
  4. The impact of the camera’s focal length
  5. Importing items from another Blender file

Here are the video instructions, they’re long at about 50mins, so take them in a few sections if you need to:

You’re going to need an image I prepared to texture the warp tunnel, it’s below. Just right-click on it and save it as space.png.

The blend file can be downloaded from here.

Have a lovely summer!
