Examples of previous events

20th June 2022

Blender Webinar – Heartbeats – animating heart movements. Full day ‘hands on’ webinar creating heartbeat movements. The first half of the day we will be animating an adult human heart using shape keys, constraints and motion paths. For the second half we will look at the various options for animate blood flow and the attendees will have an opportunity to explore each of these in turn. At the end of the day, attendees should have a fully animated heart and practical skills in a number of animation techniques. Basic skills and understanding of Blender required to participate but please do attend even if you have never used Blender before and just wish to watch and explore the possibilities of animation! Supervisor: Catherine Bone.
