Blender 3d: Making A Sci-Fi UI / HUD

Code Canyon


Update: mic accomplished – thanks to GC!

I was inspired by this pinterest board.

In this tutorial I discuss making a sci-fi hud.

sorry about the audio. I got a new mic and it sounds just horrid!

Check out my gumroad. Sequel coming soon!

    I don't know what I did but I end up with a Oval in the first 35 seconds of the video. smh I was able to set the array and simple deform once afte setting the loop cuts and I have been trying to get it to work since. I always end up with a phat oval.

    Hey Man! I came back to see what you were doing here and WTF! I completely missed the AWESOME command #frame! Where did you learn about this command? I love that command! WHOA WAY COOL! Thanks Jerry! :O)

    ALT+A doesn't activate the driver. Only becomes dark red in the z field.

    Ok I managed to do a different path but with the same result, don't shrink the box, cut it in half until its the right size, Hope this has helped!

    Very cool…thanks.   #frame*.05 is a great trick.  Also like the constraint tip.

    5th time rewatching it and still unable to do it rip. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it correctly. Plane > Scale > 12 Loop cuts > Array > Deform?

    Wow. Didn't even know it was this simple to make a ridiculously sick ui in Blender. For sure you should have MANY MANY MANY more views and likes than this. Come on people show your love. This is a great method for doing so many things. I modeled a logo not too long ago and I wish I had seen this first. Would have saved me so much time 🙂 Anyway, I give you massive props. Love it!

    Congratulations for this tuto.I do not speak english.I have used google to
    translate my text.Because,there are the err or in my sentence.I like sci-fi and
    I am very happy for this tuto. I am trying to realize it but I  meet a problem. I do not understand how you
    received to make the rotation. If you like it I would like that You give me the
    keys it takes to rotate the objects in this tutorial.

    Please  zoom your screen so that we can
    see the menu of blender.this your screen is small.

     Thank you

    Thanks for an awesome modifier tutorial. That's pretty inventive. I was having trouble seeing the Npanel operations and I couldn't tell if you typed #frame then hit enter and the the value or #framex.05, ot what. I tried rewatching it a ton, but still can't see it. I tried both ways, but no luck. I think I jacked the file up, but any help is appreciated.

    Note: from Blender 2.75 on, you MUST APPLY the scale BEFORE adding the Simple Deform Modifier.

    cool video! looks like a nice approach. but I'm wondering why you don't draw this up in 2D vector program using similar techniques? since you're effectively creating 2D art, wouldn't a 2D-specific tool be more efficient? then you could import if you needed 3D animation or placement.

    I love the simple script to animate. How can you delete the script and reset?

    what am i doing wron ? time 0:22 as you make a simple deform and bend it, my plane goes weird. Theres an angle on the wrong axis. How can i change that ? im new in blender and i cant go on. But i really love this vid, but it's very fast how u explain it. But really nice, would help me if i wouldn't have this error
