About this Class

In this lesson, you will get introduced to particle systems in Blender. They are easier to use than you might initially think. I’m going to guide you step by step through the process, so you can learn all the essentials and continue to use the techniques for your own projects.

Particles are many objects emitted from mesh objects, usually in the thousands. Each particle can be a light point or a grid and be connected or dynamic. They can react to many different influences and forces and have an idea of life expectancy. Dynamic particles can represent fire, smoke, fog, and other things like dust and magic spells.

For example, hair particles are a subset of regular particles. Hair particle systems form curves that can represent hair, fur, grass, and bristles.

Particles generally float out of the mesh into space and many things can influence their movement. In this tutorial, learn how to use them and develop your skills in the most popular free 3D animation program, Blender!

All of our tutorials were made using Renderro.
