ANIMATION For Absolute Beginners – Blender Tutorial

Code Canyon


Learn how to create ANIMATION in BLENDER! In this tutorial I will show you how to create KEYFRAMES & work with the DOPE SHEET to breath some life into your 3D scenes!

2:09 The Timeline
6:00 Working with Keyframes
11:34 Automatic Keyframe Insertion
13:34 Setting Keyframes on Individual Channels
16:26 Working with Markers
19:00 The Dope Sheet
24:10 Limiting Keyframes to Selection

Download the tutorial files:

In this Blender beginner tutorial, we will first explore the Timeline. The Timeline is where you define the range of your animation and mange your keyframes.

Then I will show you how to create keyframes to add animation to the 3D objects in your scene.
We will cover how to create and delete keyframes, how to place markers and how to limit animation to specific properties of your objects.

Finally we will look at the Dope Sheet in Blender. The Dope Sheet gives you detailed control over all the keyframes in your 3D scene. You can use it to speed up or slow down animation, duplicate sections and fully customise the animations in your 3D scene.

    one of the bad parts about blender is that it won't toggle you autosaving. Especially with new 2.80 beta it keeps crashing plenty of times, so even animating can be rather taxing when you lose your changes in possibly new objects.

    July 2, 2019 at 05:06

    can anyone tell, me what program is author using?

    As much as I'm not a fan of cheesy or overly goofy type videos, I actually really like the intros you do. They make me laugh!

    I also can't drag the keyframe for some reason.

  26. Ínfernal
    July 2, 2019 at 05:06

    Gah, whenever I apply a keyframe and hit play it reverts to what it was before I keyframed it.

    How did you import into blender with the textures already on it?

    My timeline isn't there, and nothing can bring it in except making everything just the timeline and that does nothing I can make keyframes but can't play the animation

    Is there a way to move the key frames on the timeline without having to go into the dope sheet?

    Thank you for keeping your "Beginner" tutorials at an actual beginner level. Thank you for covering fundamentals before jumping in and doing all kinds of things that we wouldn't understand.

    Tobias can come up with the cheesiest intro jokes but still end up being funny.

    (Refer to his After Effects 101 playlist, there are lots there.)

    I like your sense of humor (your little comedy sketches with animation) and the way you explain things. Though I'm here mostly because of Blender. I tried to conquer Adobe After Effects and couldn't make myself love it 🙁 My question is if I absolutely master Blender, can I do all the effects I might need for movies and commercials in Blender instead of Adobe After Effects? Is Adobe After Effects 100% replaceable with Blender in your opinion?

  39. Megan McCormick

    Can you move forward keyframes to give more time in where I would want to add in animation when I add the skeleton? replacing each frame? I would think moving them down would be possible. Maybe is there I can multiple delete?

    Please talk about how you camera track still footage. But not to nag u too much i will also try it myself. I've never successfully tracked something. It looks so fun. I thot still would be harder cos nothing moves. If not, then wouldnt it be too easy? But i cant wait to put dinosaurs in my housemate's rooms or aliens, or suzan monkey head errrrm

    Such a big help, thank you! The beginning was cool too! Cube gets no respect, haha!
    Could you do a tutorial on how to animate the cube like at the beginning, flipping on its edge and in a circular path back to where it started? I keep trying and it just isn't working. Seems much more involved.
