The first lesson of 3D Animation 1
Make your own 3D Animated Movie!
In 3D Animation 1 you'll learn to bring characters to life as you animate their movements, and their world. With a focus on the 12 basic principles of animation, kids will learn a wide variety of animation skills and concepts that will give them a broad arsenal of animation knowledge from keyframes to camera movements.
No prior experience needed!
In 3D Animation 1 Kids Learn:
Principles of Animation
Kids gain a deep understanding of some of the foundational principles of animation, including squash and stretch, follow-through, arcs, secondary action, timing, exaggeration and more.
Industry-standard Animation Techniques
Kids use the same techniques and workflows that professional animators in leading animation studios do, including the use of location and rotation keyframes, multiples cameras, inverse kinematics, curve editing, and more.
Blender, a Professional Software
Kids learn to use a professional open-source 3D animation software called Blender, which has the same power and functionality as proprietary programs used in world-class animation studios.
How to make a Real Animation
Kids learn how to make an animated short as polished and professional as what they are used to seeing in movies, which they can easily share with friends and family.
“This class is so well produced! The videos are engaging and the instruction is very thorough. The lessons are challenging but not too hard for my 11 year old to do on his own. He’s very proud of what he’s been able to produce. This class is a great value and I highly recommend it.”
"We are beyond satisfied with this course! Our daughter can't wait to move on to new challenges and other courses. Thank you, Youth Digital!"
