(Online) Christof Van Niekerk – Blender: An Introduction 

DATE:   Thursday, September 22, 2022

FROM:  7:00pm-9:00pm EDT

WHERE:  Online

The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is proud to present Christof Van Niekerk, founder of Motion Bones studio. Christof will be providing an introduction to Blender, the free and open-source 3D creation suite. The presentation will provide a broad overview of Blender which will cover the user interface, sculpting tools, shaders, rendering engines, and much more.


Blender is the free and open-source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing, and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. Advanced users employ Blender’s API for Python scripting to customize the application and write specialized tools; often these are included in Blender’s future releases. Blender is well suited to individuals and small studios who benefit from its unified pipeline and responsive development process

The meeting will be hosted on the Zoom platform. A link to the meeting will be provided 5 minutes prior to the presentation to all those who have responded to the announcement on our MeetUp. The link will also be visible to those who RSVP. Those who do not RSVP to the MeetUp announcement will not receive the link to the meeting.


Please join us on Thursday, September 22, from 7pm to 9pm EDT online to learn more about Blender.
