Here’s the next lesson of our Blender 2D- & 3D-Tracking tutorials. After laying the fundamentals in the last tutorials we will now take a look into the first use of our tracking knowledge for making stabilizations. We use two examples for that and we also use the Blender Compositor. I hope you like it. 👉 YouTube: More tutorials of this series will follow shortly. Have a great holiday season 🌲Read More

Last week we started the new “Blender 3.0 for Production” series about 2D- & 3D Tracking in Blender. After preparing the footage and an overview of the Movie clip editor in the first two episodes we now dive into the fundamentals of 2D tracking. Many more episodes will follow 😉 Have fun! 😊 👉 YouTube: If you want to support these kinds of videos, you can become a pixeltrain PatreonRead More

What do I love about Blender? That working in the application is so integrated, fast & flexible, for example for shading while changing some uvs on the fly with Cycles still running.
