'Within Without' by Patrycja Cmak



In a barren and cold world, a lone knight travels toward a sole beacon of hope; a beautiful, golden city. When the knight’s way is blocked by an infallible monster, the knight must fight to reach his goal; but can they defeat the monster from within the heavy armour without facing the memories that haunt?
WITHIN, WITHOUT was made by a team of 3rd year Character Animation & CG Art students at The Animation Workshop/VIA University College in Viborg, Denmark. Check out the individual students blogs (links below) to learn more about the talent behind the film and check out the project blog.

Blender Introduces Incredible 2D Animation Tools Within Its 3D Pipeline



The Grease Pencil provides 2D animation tools within Blender’s free and open-source full-3D pipeline. For a clearer idea of what this means, take a look at the end credits of Hero which shows in-production scenes from the demo.

Blender has offered the Grease Pencil technology in its software for a number of years, but the new update will allow for “feature quality animation production” in Blender 2.8. The first beta of Blender 2.8 will be available in the second half of 2018.
