The workshop was divided into two enlightening sessions: Session 1: Introduction to Blender and the World of 3D Space Harith Ja’afar provided insights into why Blender is an excellent choice for beginners compared to other industry-standard software. Participants learned the fundamentals of 3D modeling, materials, lighting, animation, Cycles engine, camera setup, and system optimization to enhance their creative efficiency. Session 2: Creating Animations with Simulations, Geometry Nodes & Modifiers The second part of the workshop delved into ideation through sketches, geometry nodes, and modifiers, emphasizing a non-destructive workflow.
