Learn to make your own planetarium shows with Blender, a free, open-source 3D software. Our Blender-Based Production Workshops offer an intensive, hands-on learning experience.
With Blender (2013)
What if I'm not a planetarium person?
No problem! In fact, the vast majority of Blender users are "flat screeners." Most of the skills we teach are the same either way. The only major difference is our specialized camera and scene composition. We'll start the intro class with the "stock" camera and introduce the fisheye camera rig a bit later.
Connect with the growing community of Blender users through a variety of wikis, forums, and discussion groups. We set up the "Blendertarium" forum to facilitate ongoing community support for planetarians who use Blender.
