For creators, going outside to film content can be crucial to the creative process. Learning new skills is a great way to continue moving forward whilst outdoor access is limited. That’s why today, we’re releasing the first three videos in a five-tutorial Blender VFX course using Blender and HitFilm. This is the perfect opportunity to get started with a new and exciting skill set that’ll change the way you make content.

The masterclass will take you through the entire 3D asset creation process in Blender. This includes an introduction to Blender’s tools and UI, creating shapes, adding and subtracting details, and adding photorealistic texture. We’ll cover everything from 3D modeling to physics simulations. And we’ll show you how it’s done every step of the way.

Once you’ve created your first 3D asset, Tom will show you how you can import it into HitFilm, and composite it realistically into a scene. We’ll also cover HitFilm’s animated textures, which allows you to map animations like bullet-holes, blood splatter, or video projections onto the faces on your object (pretty cool, right?)

The first three episodes can be watched now on the FXhome YouTube channel here. Make sure you have Blender and HitFilm Express installed and ready to go. We’ll be dropping the other two episodes over the next two weeks, so make sure you’re subscribed to stay notified when they release.
