Blender Day 7/50 - Simple Animation

I have returned after a too-long silence! Sometimes it’s easier to get things started again with a simple project, and for that, I thought I’d try my hand at a very simple animation.

I pulled from this tutorial here: [2.8] Blender Tutorial: Simple Animation For Beginners

The video went into how we turn on rigid-body physics in Blender (honestly, somewhat similar to Unity), and how to keyframe animation for both movement and color. The keyboard short to add a keyframe is i, and I learned from another video that you can even animate “manually” by moving things around in your viewport, if you have auto-keying turned on. Wild stuff! (That video is here.)

The end result of today’s Blender adventure is here:

My dream is to animate some blobby figures, so maybe we’ll try that tomorrow.
