In keeping with Location One's longtime endorsement of open source solutions and philosophies, we will offer a workshop in open source 3D animation software Blender. The Blender 3D Workshop is an introduction to one of the most powerful open source shareware packages in the world. The workshop will cover the basics of the interface, modeling, texturing, animation, and rendering. Emphasis will be placed on modeling tools and technique.
