Spaceship in a dusky atmosphere created with Apple Motion and Blender

Blender + Apple Motion: Spaceship Tutorial Project

Part One of this (seven part) introductory course for Apple Motion users who are new to Blender, in which we’ll create 3D scene elements in Blender and bring them into Motion for the rest of the 3D build and animation. Although it’s not a very plausible spaceship, this tutorial project will provide a very useful tour of a range of key concepts and workflows.
