    • Not like Adobe After Effects at all, nor is it really "free" (the free option has a watermark and low res). Even the paid version is only 720p at best. It's a single template with very limited customization, nothing more. Guest • Jan 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Sensei Format

    Sensei Format & the Blender Crash Course were created with each other in mind (blendersensei.com/blender-crash-course). The idea being, make Blender easier to learn and use. Sensei Format removes tedious and difficult to remember steps from hundreds of common 3D modeling and animation tasks. Learning a 3D program is similar to learning a programming language. Once learned, transferring your skills is fairly simple. Sensei Format helps you learn core CG disciplines faster.
