This picture is of the Blender studio, with an average stick-man mesh and several frames in the timeline, each yellow line representing a frame.

This is the same exact animation as above, just rendered to see what the viewer will see.

My Important Takeaways

  • I learned to not take tasks like this lightly. Determination and motivation is key in animation.
  • I learned how to use basic features of Blender.
  • I learned how to plan out a project.

The biggest challenges

The biggest challenge was probably learning everything I needed as fast as possible. Setups for animations are also very hard to create, and sometimes crashes can get rid of any recent work. A good determination or motivation helps with this type of project.

Project Plan

My plan was to learn Blender as fast as I could, and create something from what I learned. Blender's 3D modeling and effects system make a great program, but also requires skill.
Original Project plan:


Project Execution

I had originally planned to spend most of my time working on the animation itself, but as it turns out, the one thing that took me the longest was learning how to use Blender to begin with. There is too much to learn in a short amount of time.

For those who do this type of project in the future.

The most important piece of advice I would give to others is to not take this program lightly. It takes some considerable time to learn even the basics. However, there are some presets you can download off of the internet if you're having trouble with making the meshes.
