COURSE REVIEWS FROM UKRAMEDIA STUDENTS

Bite-sized course that covers all the basics

In typical Sergei fashion, this is a course that “keeps it going”, light and digestible, with broadcast-quality results.

I have a working knowledge of Blender 2.79 so seeing v2.8 in use wasn’t foreign to me. Nonetheless, I learned a lot about the interface and alternate methods to my own habits that were much quicker. Sergei does a thorough job showing the different ways to find Blender’s tools and teaches through repetition without becoming tedious.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and look forward to more!

Concise yet Comprehensive

Once again, Sergei takes a practical and useful approach to teaching the skills necessary to be a successful motion designer in an entirely subjective industry. 

Blender 3D can be very daunting at first, however, Sergei approaches this walkthrough with the mindset that users of all experience levels will be watching. Having been a user of B3D for just under a year, I understood much of the concepts such as render engines, materials and lighting, and even navigating the many menus B3D offers. However,  I learn substantially more than I bargained for in this tutorial, including improved methods and keyboard shortcuts for improving workflow efficiency,  practical and standardized animation techniques within mograph in general, and B3D specifically, as well as a more holistic approach to conceptualizing and executing projects. 

The course is thoughtfully organized, covers far more material concerning animation and modeling than I originally thought, and is broken into easily consumed 20ish minute segments with easy to follow steps. 

If you are having issues with the course, I recommend reaching out to Sergei, as he is very responsive, and eager to help students understand the material, and short of getting help directly from the source, there is a huge Blender community to draw support from. 

I look forward to more Blender tutorials from Ukramedia.

How To Create a Sports Bumper in Blender 2.8

Awesome stuff!!!! For years I’ve been looking for such a course. Amazing!!! 

The course is to the point and yet detailed enough.  The only thing I can say is THANK YOU and I can’t wait for the next course.

Perfect pace, lots of learning on tools, shortcuts, layout, animation, workflow just everything. Well done Ukramedia.com team.

One of its kind!

This is by far the best motion graphic course in Blender3D with professional quality. I spent a long time searching for something similar even closer to be done inside Blender without having to rely on other commercial products like Cinema4D, which I think is amazing but costly. I wish that we can use this tool for more motion graphic and this course is really a solid foundation towards this goal that we can build upon. I am already thinking about different ways to utilize the tools presented in this course. Once I have something worth showing I will share with everyone and will never forget to give credit to Ukramedia. I highly recommend this to every beginner. They will get the real taste of the ability to create something out of nothing. You don’t learn simply to learn how to use the tools only, instead, you get to learn the proper way of using them. Thanks a lot for putting the effort into creating this course.

Great overview course with a focus on motion graphics

This course covers the basics of modeling, lighting, animating, and rendering within the new Blender 2.8 interface. How to Create a Sports Bumper in Blender 2.8 is an excellent course for those looking to jump into 3D from After Effects.

Great overview for motion graphics work

Overall I’m very happy with my purchase and I learned a lot from the course. It is excellently explained and focused. If I had one thing to nitpick it would be that there was no “Adding and syncing sound” section for something like this.  I think having the compositing section done in the Blender VSE (Video sequence editor)  instead of external apps (like After effects was used in this course). It would have rounded out the course perfectly and shown how good the VSE is in 2.8.

One course to rule them all

What I found most useful about this course is that it shows you all the different steps in creating an American-style sport graphic.
Now that I took it, I can make basically all I want, and it’s very easy too!
