Free

Blender is completely FREE, open-source and always growing thanks to a community of talented developers and users introducing new updates and concepts every day

Free animation software

Exponential Growth

Blender 3d is growing

More and more animation and gaming studios are switching to Blender as their main production software and we predict it’ll become an industry standard in the near future

Room For Innovation

We believe that TOAnimate will bring much needed value to the Blender community with new tools to help more animators create beautiful work for everyone to enjoy!

WHY BLENDER?

Blender course for beginners

Our Experience

The entire TOAnimate team has extensive industry experience working on a high-end production (Maya and the Three), made entirely in Blender. We've learned all the ins and outs of the software through sweat and tears so you don't have to :')

WHY TOAnimate?

We're ANIMATORS, so we know the struggle of:

  • Finding structured Blender animation lessons

  • Looking for a set when you think of a story

  • Finding feature quality rigs to animate with

  • Scavenging for rigged props for the characters to use

  • And finding the right dialogue for the animation

 

By the time we make our way through that list, our inspiration dies...

...so we decided to bring it all in one place!

Why should you learn Blender?

That’s easy! Besides being free to use, Blender is growing and improving incredibly fast, thanks to a pool of dedicated developers. And studios are noticing! In fact, many animation companies are now shifting their production pipelines from Maya to Blender. There’s never been a better time to take the leap and gain those Blender skills. The sooner you do it, the better - studios still struggle to find qualified Blender animators who don’t require weeks of expensive training. Having professional knowledge of the software is a sure way for you to stand out and impress your potential employers!

OUR KICKSTARTER IS OVER! WHAT’S NEXT?

In December, we held a very successful Kickstarter and gained over 400 students who are helping us develop the course. With the funds we raised and thanks to the feedback we’ve got, we are now building the most comprehensive Blender Animation Course on the market. Our goal is to fully complete and launch the course by fall 2022.

Quotation mark

I'm just in awe. Seriously! In the first 12 videos I learned so many cool tricks I never knew existed. Rotate over 3d cursor!? The breakdowner over 100%? What?
 This course is on fire!

 I must say, I'm only 40% through the Basics course and I've already sped up my workflow.  This is really helping me get out of Maya mind and be in Blender mind.  I love the PDF info that goes along with the videos, so easy to go back to for reference. I'm glad to be here and so stoked this course exists!

All I can say is WOW, this is a talented community; imagine what the shared knowledge here could produce.

I love the direction TOAnimate has taken with the short, rich content, that laser focuses on just animation. Plus the PDF under the lesson? bravo! I have picked up so many pointers right off jump.

Learn from Experienced Blender Animators

That’s right! Our entire team has extensive industry experience working on high-end productions, both in Maya and Blender. We learned everything we know about Blender through sweat and tears while animating on the Annie award-winning show Maya and the Three (check it out on Netflix).

It cost us hundreds of hours of time, because we didn’t have the structured resources needed to learn efficiently. We created TOAnimate to give you a much better learning experience, with easy-to-follow resources and assets to make it fun!
