No more manual drawings, now you can easily create 2D cartoon-style effects with Blender, a free 3D tool! The fact that you can implement these effects with ease is a game-changer. Not only can you create effects featuring natural objects such as lightning and fireworks, but you can also add a touch of abstract elements like materials and particle effects to your designs. With step-by-step guidance from Japanese 3D CG creator Hiroshi Kanazawa, you have the freedom to create any effect you desire.
Learn the core functions of Blender by understanding the flow of 3D and animation production, including various expressions such as VFX and filters that add functionality and color. By understanding the structure of effects, you can freely combine multiple materials and break free from the constraints of 2D and 3D, making it useful in the field of video such as movies and MV. We will continually develop the ability to produce effects animation that will be used.
