  1. Bite-sized course that covers all the basics


    In typical Sergei fashion, this is a course that “keeps it going”, light and digestible, with broadcast-quality results.

    I have a working knowledge of Blender 2.79 so seeing v2.8 in use wasn’t foreign to me. Nonetheless I learned a lot about the interface and alternate methods to my own habits that were much quicker. Sergei does a thorough job showing the different ways to find Blender’s tools and teaches through repetition without becoming tedious.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course and look forward to more!

  2. Concise yet Comprehensive


    Once again, Sergei takes a practical and useful approach to teaching the skills necessary to be a successful motion designer in an entirely subjective industry.

    Blender 3D can be very daunting at first, however, Sergei approaches this walk through with the mindset that users of all experience levels will be watching. Having been a user of B3D for just under a year, I understood much of the concepts such as render engines, materials and lighting, and even navigating the many menus B3D offers. However, I learn substantially more than I bargained for in this tutorial, including improved methods and keyboard shortcuts for improving workflow efficiency, practical and standardized animation techniques within mograph in general, and B3D specifically, as well as a more holistic approach to conceptualizing and executing projects.

    The course is thoughtfully organized, covers far more material concerning animation and modeling than I originally thought, and is broken into easily consumed 20ish minute segments with easy to follow steps.

    If you are having issues with the course, I recommend reaching out to Sergei, as he is very responsive, and eager to help students understand the material, and short of getting help directly from the source, there is a huge Blender community to draw support from.

    I look forward to more Blender tutorials from Ukramedia.

  3. How To Create a Sports Bumper in Blender 2.8


    Awesome stuff!!!! For years I’ve been looking for such a course. Amazing!!!

    The course is to the point and yet detailed enough. The only thing I can say is THANK YOU and I can’t wait for the next course.

    Perfect pace, lots of learning on tools, shortcuts, layout, animation, workflow just everything. Well done Ukramedia.com team.

  4. One of it kind!


    This is by far the best motion graphic course in Blender3D with a professional quality. I spent long time searching for something similar even closer to be done inside Blender without having to rely on other commercial products like Cinema4D, which I think it is amazing but costly. I wish that we can use this tool for more motion graphic and this course is really a solid foundation towards this goal that we can build upon. I am already thinking about different ways to utilize the tools presented at this course. Once I have something worth showing I will sharing with everyone and will never forget to give a credit to Ukramedia. I highly recommend this to every beginner. They will get the real taste of the ability to create something out of nothing. You don’t learn simply learn how to use the tools only, instead, you get to learn the proper way of using them. Thanks a lot for putting the effort in creating this course.

  5. Great overview course with a focus on motion graphics.


    This course covers the basics of modeling, lighting, animating, and rendering within the new Blender 2.8 interface. How to Create a Sports Bumper in Blender 2.8 is an excellent course for those looking to jump into 3D from After Effects.

  6. Great overview for motion graphics work


    Overall I’m very happy with my purchase and I learned a lot from the course. It is excellently explained and focused. If I had one thing to nitpick it would be that there was no “Adding and syncing sound” section for something like this. I think having the compositing section done in the Blender VSE (Video sequence editor) instead of external apps (like After effects was used in this course). It would have rounded out the course perfectly and shown how good the VSE is in 2.8.

  7. One course to rule them all


    What I found most useful about this course is that it shows you all the different steps in creating an american-style sport graphic.
    Now that I took it, I can make basically all I want, and it’s very easy too!

  8. Ukramedia made Blender so easy to understand!


    Thank you for making this tutorial. It was straight forward and simple to follow along. Finally… Blender is easy to understand!

  9. Great Course


    I was able to really get a great feel for blender and I breezed through this course. I’m definitely ready for more.



    Sports Motion Graphics is something I have been longing to get into, and I knew we could do this with Blender. It seems like it’s a closely guarded secret and there was really not much out there on the subject.

    I noticed Sergei was using Blender, so I wrote him an email suggesting that he should do a course about Sports Motion Graphics with Blender. Shortly after, I saw the course preview and I fell off the chair!

    I am sure others had asked, but I am so glad you listened, Sergei!!! I am like a kid on Christmas day- So happy and pumped.

    Thank you, Sergei. Keep more of these coming! AND thank you for making it affordable man. It’s really a blessing. May your beneficence be rewarded a million fold, Brother!!!

    Considering taking this course?


    (All caps so even a blind man can see it. Cheers everyone!)

    Sergei, Volume II in the works? (Yes Please!)

  11. Fantastic Tutorial


    I have recently switched from other 3D software to Blender. This tutorial is brilliant. Clear , precise, and great workflow shown.
    Look forward to more tutorials. Just used some of these great ideas for a basketball movie i am working on.
    THANK YOU and also for making them downloadable.

  12. I learned so much!


    First Sergei got me interested in using After Effects expressions, and now 3D! Before this I didn’t foresee 3D being a large part of my animation, but now I have a much larger interest in it. I’d never used Blender before, and haven’t really used 3D software in over a decade, but this tutorial series was very easy to follow , and a ton of fun. There’s so much covered that I’m sure I’ll need to rewatch parts of it to really remember everything, but I already feel more confident opening Blender and playing around. Super happy with this course, and now curious to see what I can come up with on my own.

  13. Exactly what I needed - please produce more!


    I first heard about Sergei on the School of Motion podcast and couldn’t wait to explore the resources he’s put out. I’ve been creating motion graphics for several years in After Effects and Cinema 4D, and I was intrigued by the potential Blender (esp. 2.8.x) brings to the tables, but the pool of mograph-focused information in Blender is poor – until I found this. The mograph community needs more people like Sergei pumping out resources for mograph in Blender! This tutorial was incredibly helpful and walks through everything I wanted to know.

    Please make more!

  14. Great job!


    Great course! Especially the detail about mouse buttons and working within user interface. I wish you explained more about using nodes in the compositor, but I will figure them out as I try to build my version using this course! Thanks.

  15. The best


    Sergei is the best instructor ever. His way is amazing!
    Thank you so much and hope you have another Blender course.

  16. Great Course!


    I’ve been using blender for several months now, mainly for environment modelling and some simple animation, and in this course there are some tricks and features that is new for me in this video. And I think I can apply it to other works as well. Plus, learning the workflow for this sports bumper gave me better understanding of motion graphics and blender itself, and not forget to mention it gives me some new idea that I can’t wait to try.
    As always, thank you for sharing the knowledge!

  17. Amazing!


    Simple and enlighting, and wishing there were more courses with higher difficulty.
    i’ve learned alot from this one course and now I can’t wait to get to the next level with my blender skills.

    Dear Sergei (and your brother) please keep those blender courses coming!

  18. Great Introduction to Blender 3D Motion Design


    Always looking to enhance my skills and add to my creative toolbox… I was so excited to see that Ukramedia had a Blender course featuring one of their very well known broadcast sports bumpers.

    This course is not only a wonderful introduction to Blender, but overall 3D motion graphic design and execution as well! Sergei walks us through the basics of modeling and rigging, working with modifiers, cameras, material design, animation, and rendering with an alpha channel. You’ll learn plenty of shortcuts, as well as the most efficient way of getting a professional result quickly.

    Thank you Sergei and Ukramedia team for the wonderful lesson. I plan to begin incorporating Blender into my motion design client’s projects going forward, and will keep my fingers crossed and eye out for any new Blender courses from you guys!
