2.6/Manual/3D interaction/Navigating From BlenderWiki The 3D View is where you perform most of the object modeling and scene creation. Blender has a wide array of tools and options to support you in efficiently working with your mouse, keyboard and keypad. It is also the oldest, and therefore most feature- and option-rich area of Blender.
Create a Shattered Glass Title Animation Using Blender In this tutorial you will discover how to: Use the explode modifier correctly to break apart your meshSlow down time by tweaking particle settingsUse force fields to give your particles an extra ‘kick’Create thousands of shards of glass in one fell swoopColor grade your work ‘hollywood style’ If you’ve spent anytime watching television, you’ve probably seen at least one commercial or trailer showing slow motion shattered glass. And if you’re like me you’ve probably obsessed over this effect and let it play in your head on repeat until the wee hours of the morning instead of sleeping. It’s an effect that’s always been on my ‘to-do’ list, but never reached my ‘actually doing’ list until now. Finished Result

[Animating in 2.5] Getting to grips with Keying Sets Over the past few months, I've been observing quite a bit of confusion over some aspects of the animation system in 2.5 that's all related to "Keying Sets". These are a rather important new feature aimed at improving the animation workflow, but which many people don't seem to be aware of. So, if you're wondering why you're getting a "weird" error message when trying to insert keyframes, or if you'd just like to learn some new workflow tricks to make animating easier, read on :) A bit of history first... (2.4x days) What many may not be aware of, is that you've (assuming you have used the 2.4x series) been using Keying Sets for a lot longer than you know. Back in 2.48, I did a round of animation system related cleanups, some of which included some cleanups to the keyframing code.

Links - Tutorials, Models, Books, Textures and more! Blender Suco published a HUGE list of interesting resources for Blender users. Blender Suco writes: I made a super list of interesting links where one can find useful resources to any digital artist, especially the user and Blender 3D. Not to be always creating new pages with more and more links’ll always want to update this. Link Model a sperm whale in Blender 2.5 Beginning with a simple cube and gradually refining its form, you will learn how to add detail to the model while maintaining a low poly count as you progress through the tutorial. The modern 3D industry, particularly games and film work, requires digital models that are ready to use for animation. The efficiency of animation depends upon the construction of the model.
Blender Video Tutorial Welcome to GreyBeard's Blender tutorials! The video tutorials you find on this site are my way of giving back to the Blender community and thanking them for the wonderful work they have done in developing the open source application Blender. I would also like to express my gratitude to the folks at ibiblio.org for making this possible by hosting this site. What is Blender? The Blender web site describes Blender as an integrated 3D graphics creation suite allowing modeling, animation, rendering, post-production, realtime interactive 3D and game creation and playback with cross-platform compatibility.
