Packt Publishing Ė Blender 2.8 Game Character Creation
Info: More Information Learn Create 3D modelling in Blender 2.8 UV mapping Texturing and sculpting Baking a normal map Rigging a character in Blender 2.8 About In this course, youíll create a game character using Blender 2.8, export it to Unity, and configure it so you can control it in the game engine.
Beginning with modelling, youíll use Blender 2.8 to build all the individual pieces of a Lego character. And then youíll learn how to UV-map each of the parts, and then create an efficient, unified UV map of the entire character. You will use Blenderís texture painting tools to create the characterís clothes and youíll use the Sculpt tools to create high-res details of the hair. Youíll then learn how to bake a normal map in Blender and apply the textures to the character model.
Next, weíll work on rigging the character. We will begin with a single bone, and create the rig manually, so you can see how a character rig is built from the ground up. Youíll learn how to create a Foot Roll Rig and how to use Blender 2.8ís new process for creating custom shapes to control the character. Once the rig is done, weíll show you a cool technique: using Blender 2.8ís new Grease Pencil tools to animate both a 2D drawn face and a 3D body at the same time. With this technique, we will create the characterís Idle, Run, and Jump animations, ready to be used in a game engine.
You will then learn how to export the character, animations, and textures out of Blender and bring them into the Unity game engine. And here you will learn how to set-up the character in the game and even how to retarget third-party animations onto our character, using Unityís Humanoid Rig system.
Finally, we will write a simple C# script to incorporate our 2D and 3D animations and get the character running around the level.
If youíve ever wanted to create a game character and are interested in getting up-to-speed in Blender 2.8, then this course is for you. So, join me as we create a game character in Blender 2.8.
Style and Approach This course is designed to help you build something from scratch, from prototype to near completion. It covers theory and implementation with real app examples.
