Walking before I run
I’m a relative beginner in Blender, having dabbled in the past with different things. I’ve used it to do bits and pieces, like stinger transitions.
Having seen a decent simple ‘BRB’ screen on AliMackScot’s stream (Twitch link), so I figured I’d whip up one of my own.
Blender is really powerful. Like super super powerful. So to get back into it it’s best to keep things simple- the above is a simple bit of text, with a particle being generated in a volume. It’s not going to win any design awards, but it reminded me of:
- camera repositioning
- text objects and font handling
- nodes (and where to find them!)
- freestyle for outlining
I’ll use the above, or one of the other dark variants as a placeholder for now. I have some complex ideas that I’d love to realise — I can see them in my head! they look really cool and slick! — but the old aphorisms are true- you’ve ogtta walk before you run.
