Jason continues his Learning Blender Tutorials with a multi-part series that combines modeling, rigid body dynamics, drivers, and blueprint style rendering to create a fun and creative shot.full course
In part 5 of the Great Mouse Launch Series, Jason shows how to combine the domino scene (https://vimeo.com/165532565) with Robyn and the Seesaw!
In order to truly appreciate the tutorial, you’ll need to download the Robyn and Seesaw blend file. You can do so here!
