I know this does not seem like much, but with the open source 3D program Blender, and (a lot) of help from the YouTube channel Tutor4U, I was able to create this 3D model of a coffee cup. I know this is not much compared to what we see on TV and movies, but this was my first time ever even opening a 3D program. I am quite pleased with myself. With knowledge of 3D graphics, you can really take your photos and videos to the next level. Now the real challenge; getting one of these models into After Effects for some motion magic!
I will be working on some more stuff, so look forward for more 3D goodness to come!
