Create 3D Animations for free
This is more advanced than the rest of the content on this site, but here
is some great news I wanted to share with you. You can get a really good 3d
animation program for free.
It is called trueSpace 3 and it delivers features normally only found in
high-end 3D packages costing thousands.
It took me a few months to get to grips with all the tools but there are
lots of free web tutorials about truespace all over the internet. Just do
a google search for 'truespace tutorials'.
You can download
trueSpace 3 from the cagliari website and look at examples
of animations made by other artists.
Who knows? You could go on to make animated movies, or create 3d models to
sell to other animators.
Here is a quick church interior I did this morning. I need to change the
floor and add some detail on the far wall beneath the window. maybe I could
also add pews and a lectern?
If you enjoy cartooning, then I think you may find 3D animation to be lots
of fun too.
News update: Google is now giving away a really easy 3d drawing programme
called Google Sketchup It is really
easy to use and allows you to build 3d models that can then be viewed in Google
