I have a lot of tutorials on my site at http://www.reblended.com. I also host the tutlinks page. It's http://mysite.reblended.com/tutlinks. It's not my work, it's just on my server. It's a pretty good resource. I'm so glad Blender is getting into CGtalk. Thanks.

Hey Modron, would you care to submit your tutorial to the NEW official Blender Tutorial List?

The sudmission form is at http://www.nuance9.com/elysiun/Form.htm

We are still collecting and evaluating tutorials, so the list isn' t on-line yet. However there is a small public preview at http://www.nuance9.com/elysiun/output/2-3-0.htm

I've just started to rebuild my personal website as a 3D resource site. The links-section has a blender specific area. I'm going to try to get almost anything and everything 3D-related in there :)

My website:
http://www.technogremlin.org

Direct link to the links-section:
http://www.technogremlin.org/modules/mylinks/

Direct link to the Blender-specific area:
http://www.technogremlin.org/modules/mylinks/viewcat.php?cid=1

I'm just starting to fill the links section from my own bookmarks (several hundreds) so the Blender specific area has just a few links for now.

Thanks for the info, my first blender version I downloaded was 3 years ago or more!
When you would goto Import, it would say Pythons go here somehow.
Even though I still liked the simplicity of it, and that someone was giving it out for free.

Heya, here's a tutorial by 'criss' on how he uses PD Particles to paint new skies for use as backgrounds, then paints foliage and bushes with alpha for use in planes like billboard rectangles, with transarency masks created on-the-fly with particle brushes vs. keyed on a color.

I'm learning Blender quickly now and starting to like it a lot more than just a month ago. There's that initial hurdle (plus my poor vision and small icons and text :-) but it's worth the time. My Blender self-discovery tutorial is here:

I thought I would post this here as the thread (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=91&t=576196) has slid down the forum, out of site of new members.

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/r.burke2/rab3d/tutorials/book.jpg

The Precision Modelling Guide to Blender is a 151 page walk-through of Blenders mesh modelling tools and design techniques. Illustrated with over 600 images it gives a clear and concise introduction to using blender. By progressing through the guide you will be introduced to many of Blenders commonly used modelling tools and also a few of the not so well known ones. The tools are presented in a real working design example with explanations of why the tools are used and not merely a demonstration of the tools in use.

Don't be fooled by the name the guide is useful to anyone wanting a clear introduction to Blenders mesh modelling tools.


The Guide can be downloaded from www.rab3d.com (http://www.rab3d.com/)

Hopefully you will find this useful.

For those interested in RenderMan, we have constructed a Google site, forum and blog devoted to the coupling of Blender and Renderman compliant renderers. Several software developers are also members here as well as artists all contributing to this movement. This has been 2 years in the making and we are making great progress, come and check it out!

Blog includes links to open source Renderman related tools and content creation software, websites, commercial renderers (PRMan, 3Delight, Gelato) as well other renderers.

CG Cookie has just released the Cookie Flex Rig as Creative Commons.
Designed for learning character animation, this fully animatable rig can be made into various characters through an extra layer of controls that let you set the height, body shape, clothing, hair and colours.
The rig features the familiar rigify style biped controls, as well as advanced facial controls. The shaders are set up for both Cycles and Blender Internal.


The Cookie Flex Rig was created by Nathan Vegdahl, Beorn Leonard and Jonathan Williamson, based on an initial design by David Revoy.

I've spent some time setting up an FAQ for GPU accelerated rendering at this site:
http://www.systemagnostic.com/faqs/

It covers all the basics of choosing the right GPU, getting it to work and fixing stuff that doesn't. It began its life in a thread in the Blenderartist forums, but grew quite a bit from there. It should be useful to all GPU assisted rendering really, but due to Blender Cycles only supporting CUDA and not OpenCL at this point, it is heavily weighted towards NVIDIA cards.

This is our first release of a Blender exporter for Ultimate Unwrap 3D.

Lights, geometry, materials, textures, UV coordinates, multiple UVsets, vertex colors, vertex normals, vertex weights, bones and animation can be exported from Blender.

The script was developed using Blender 2.66, so it may not load for older versions.
It supports armature-driven animation only.

If you try it out, please let us know what you think.
