July 2014 Melbourne Blender Society Meeting

The Melbourne Blender society will be meeting at VPAC Systems Office on Thursday the 24th of July from 6 to 8:00pm. Our special guest this month is Paul Caggegi who will do an introduction to the Video Sequence Editor (VSE). Paul is a professional video editor and motion graphics designer. He also is the creator of the Pandeia comic book in which he uses Blender to create background elements. See his talk about how he incorporates Blender in to his creative process from last year’s Blender Conference : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73kKErEMjHI

Andrew Buttery will give a breakdown of how he created the logo for Campaign Coins kickstarter being launched in July. This will cover compositing and simulations – specifically fluid simulation and the challenges that he faced. MBS_July_sparks

We’ll give a update on our short film, code named Project Charcoal and Melbourne Blender Society is also participating in the World Blender Day scheduled for August. We’ll give a quick rundown of where the planning is at and will brainstorm some ideas for topics.

Finally, we will have a Q&A session where the experienced members try to answer any questions or solve any problems you have encountered. Come on, try to find a question they can’t answer!

There will be 12 computers available for use in the workshop. Last time there were enough computers for everyone, but you can bring a laptop if you like. Or, you can just watch. Dinner arrangements will be decided on the day.

So see you Thursday 24th at: VPAC – Building 91 (view map) 110 Victoria Street, Carlton South.

Melbourne Blender Society is sponsored by Blender Training
