This is a follow-up course to the basics course "Data, lights, camera, action! Scientific visualization done beautifully using Blender". It is aimed at researchers that are already familiar with working in Blender, but want to dive deeper into the possibilities. The following subjects, in relation to scientific visualization with Blender, are treated in the course:
- Mesh editing
- Python scripting in Blender
- Advanced import of data
- Node-based materials and shading
This is a full-day course with hands-on assignments. The goal is to learn further practical skills in using Blender for scientific visualization.
We like to encourage participants to bring along the data they normally work with, or a sample thereof, and would like to apply the course knowledge to.
Note that there will another edition of the Basics course later in 2020.
