Abstract Blob intro

Turns out, dri­vers can be use­ful for motion graph­ics too. Who would have thought some­thing like that?

2D Animated Circles

I’ve been asked a cou­ple of times how I made the 2D cir­cles in Kyary ani­ma­tion. The dis­a­pear­ing cir­cles are pret­ty com­mon in motion and ani­ma­tions, and they’re sur­pris­ing­ly easy to do in Blender.

TopoType

Here’s a type ani­ma­tion fol­low­ing topog­ra­phy lines. Just exper­i­ment­ing with curves and cam­era moves in Blender.

Justifying like a boss in Scribus

I’ve been work­ing on a mag­a­zine project for the last cou­ple of months and sad­ly I found that there aren’t that many tuto­ri­als for Scribus, spe­cial­ly on the top­ic of justifying.

Logo explosion

Back to blend­ing! I’ve just had time to get back to blender after a long project. 

Support Gooseberry!

I think at this point most peo­ple have already heard about Gooseberry, the new Open Movie project by the Blender Foundation. It seems many are still unde­ci­sive or have decid­ed not to sup­port it. 

Render+ 0.3

After way too much time, I’m hap­py to announce a new ver­sion of Render+

Vintage effect in the compositor

Making a trendy vin­tage effect in Blender is eas­i­er than you think. We can get some great results with just a cou­ple of nodes.

Switching cameras like a pro

Changing cam­eras is a very com­mon task in ani­ma­tion, and it’s actu­al­ly pret­ty easy to do in Blender (though a lit­tle hid­den) . Let’s see two meth­ods to accom­plish this.
