The Mastering Blender Series for 2.79 and 2.8 and Beyond series of courses is a total in-depth course in the workings of Blender. Blender is an open source 3D animation software program that enables you to create 3D objects for animation, printing, and more. Blender is cross platform meaning the software works for Windows, OS and Linux. It is free and allows many interested in 3D art and animation to explore and create 3D works of their own. Mastering Blender - The Properties Editor Objects & Data is an excellent course for beginners crossing over from 2.79 to 2.8 with regards to understanding objects and object data and how the properties editor is used for creating your projects in 3D. This is the foundation course for my Mastering Blender Series.

The Mastering Blender Course Series covers everything you need to know about the software by educating you on the terminology, giving examples, relating the terms to the software and allowing you to practice on each area as shown in the lessons, allowing you to hone your skills with your 3D art creations with increasingly challenging exercises.
