I want to learn to use Blender and a little bit of Python to create a video installation (mainly to keep me motivated, I've found that learning with a clear objective in mind is easier for me).
I no experience in Blender or Python, and the tutorials that I've found are too broad, long and detailed. And I don't want to be an expert in modeling or animation or Python. So I would like someone to direct me to more specific tutorials, or similar projects to get me started.
My idea is using PureData (of which I have a little knowledge already) to capture and process ambient sound and send that to Blender (With OSC maybe?) to modify a couple of properties (size maybe) of a couple of simple geometric objects with simple lighting.
So my questions:
Game Engine creates an .exe that is executable computers without Blender and Python? I don't completely understand what GameEngine is actually. It is used to render something in real time in full screen and receive information?
I could send information from PureData to GameEngine?
Is this to complicated and I should start with a simpler project?
Thanks in advance.
And sorry if my english is bad, it isn't my first language.
Blender its just perfect for simple projects!
Go to the Blenderartists forum, there's lot of information there:
