Beyond Blender Render About This Book[edit] Before we go any further with poetry or high hopes, we'd like to say that this book is for version 2.6 (.3) of Blender. It can be used for earlier versions, but the methods aren't guaranteed to work. Also we must assume that you have a working knowledge of Blender modelling as this book only covers the Blender Game Engine (also referred to as BGE and GE). For a better Blender knowledge you should look at Blender 3D: Noob to Pro. Doc:2.4/Tutorials/Sequencer/Animatics From BlenderWiki Hello again! Here is quick tutorial on using Blender for Storyboards, or "storyboarding" as the process is called. I also then launch right into how to use Blender to take that storyboard and begin making the Animatic. The animatic puts the storyboard into video form.

Configuration and Data Paths — Blender Reference Manual There are three different directories Blender may use, their exact locations are operating system dependent. Location of configuration and runtime data (for self-contained bundle) Location of configuration files (normally in the user’s home directory). Location of runtime data for system wide installation (may be read-only). For system installations both SYSTEM and USER directories are needed. For locally extracted Blender distributions, the user configuration and data runtime data are kept in the same sub-directory, allowing multiple Blender versions to run without conflict, ignoring the USER and SYSTEM files.
