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.

Part Two of this 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. In this part we’ll learn some new modelling techniques, discover more about materials and take a quick dive into UV editing.
Part Three of this introductory course for Apple Motion users who are new to Blender, in which we’ll be spending our time in Blender getting into some juicy modelling techniques that build on everything we’ve learned so far.
The fourth and final part of this introductory course for Apple Motion users who are new to Blender, and in this final part we’ll bring our spaceship build into Motion and light and animate the final scene, bringing to an end our epic journey. But wait there’s more … three more parts, in fact, so stay tuned!
In this fifth installment of this introductory course for Apple Motion users who are new to Blender we’ll be looking at using Blender’s powerful texture paint to give our spaceship a worn and battered look.
Please note that my suggested method for creating the Normal Map using Normal Map Online is probably not the best way to go, as I will demonstrate in the next part.

Part Six of this epic tutorial series, in which we put together the Blender elements, build the scene in Motion and animate the result.
