Interested in including the free modelling software Blender into your DAZ Content Creation workflow?
Join us for this two part course on taking advantage of Blender, the free open source 3D creation suite.
A first reaction to learning Blender is to to push all the buttons and wait for something to happen, but with that haphazard way of learning, the novelty of that will soon wear off!
There’s no faster way to understand something than to learn from someone who does. SickleYield has had Blender incorporated into her workflow for creating content with DAZ Studio in the long term, so she is very familiar with everything to watch for when using this toolset.
In this two part course, we’re going to be creating a sword prop, something with enough simplicity yet allowance for variation where you can follow along and create your own masterpieces in your digital modelling forges.
