Blender Foundation - DVD training 10: Venom's Lab 2

3 года прошло с времени выпуска первого диска Venom's Lab!, многое изменилось с тех пор. Blender избавился от старого интерфейса и догнал релиз до полной 2.63 версии. На этом DVD собран весь материал о создании персонажа с нуля, используя все новые возможности программы.

3 years have passed since the previous Venom's Lab!, a lot changed, Blender went from the old interface on 2.49 to a shiny feature-full 2.63. This DVD is focused on creating a character from scratch, although some features from the previous DVD will be used, Blender has renewed its mesh system completely so we'll take advantage of that, the Hair & Fur system, new UV tools, new shortcuts, new interface, and much more. Below you can find a list of the topics to cover.

DVD Content

01. Concept:
You have to start somewhere, we'll kickoff with thinking about the character we want to do, get references and plan ahead with some concept art.
02. Modeling: Face, eyes, body, everything modeled from scratch using poly-by-poly, respecting edgeloops and taking advantages of the tools we have in Blender's new mesh system, BMesh.
03. Sculpt: Sculpting is pretty common in character creation pipeline nowadays, we'll use it to fix proportions in our character, and sculpt some details we can bake into textures later, using new tools present in Blender 2.6x such as masking.
04. Fur: Koro is pretty much entirely covered by fur, it has 4 different particles systems, each one with a different purpose and its own settings, vertex groups to control influence, and textures. Don't worry, sounds more complicated than it actually is :)
05. Texturing: UV Mapping is extremely important when texturing complex organic shapes such as characters, Blender is known to have one of the best UV editors in the market, we'll prove that! Using some of the new tools included in 2.6x.
06. Materials: Textures can't live on their own, they need shading that can show off their details, that's what materials are for, not only diffuse but fur & hair also have their own special setup for transparency, thickness, etc.
07. Introduction to Koro's Rigging: This chapter will show off Koro's rigging, while not explaining the basics, focus is to show some features it has for special deformation using MeshDeform and ShapeKeys, plus some tricks I used for the trailer. As a bonus I'll include a free chapter from Nathan Vegdahl's DVD on Rigging for 2.6x
08. Behind the Scenes: Now that we know how to create a character, we'll go behind the scenes the teaser trailer to explore the pipeline and all the little tricks involved, so you know the way to go for your next animation!
