Its hardly very big at all. I have a large scale ratio however, smaller details to larger details. http://img17.imageshack.us/my.php?image=modelupg.jpg This model has very small, intimate details: http://img17.imageshack.us/my.php?image=model2o.jpg As you can see, the clusters of pink lines indicate...

Ever tried Ctrl-A? If not, please do. What does that do? I'm using blender right now and nothing happens when I press those keys. And slitting your mesh up into parts? And moving parts to other layers? WHY would I do either of those things? I've never had to do so in other programs. How would I mov...

Stupid blender issue needs solving

Yeah, so, when I model with Blender sometimes when I'm trying to select an object in edit mode, I have to zoom out real far to select it. Otherwise there's no way to select a piece, and working with small parts is difficult if not impossible. The only way to fix this seems to be to remake the model,...

I tried that but nothing different happened! I'm at wits end. What do you mean by "window"?

I click View -> background image -> use background image -> load, and find my picture. Once I've found it I right click it (which highlights it in blue) then click the select image button. I think I've just figured it out, I tried left clicking then clicking the select image button and the image app...

Blender viewport background image issues

Blender for me has always been a frustration. I am trying to perform the simplest of tasks in order to learn the program. When I finally get to placing the image on the viewport, the image is displayed in all the viewports. When I change one it changes all of them. What am I doing wrong and how do I...

How long...?

I'm just curious, but how long did it take you to learn python? I've just started over this last week, and I've got a couple hundred pages to go. I've learned other languages but this always takes me a long time. Is the blender API a whole language in itself? Thanks for your time!

Ok, thanks. Should I learn the API as well? And you never gave me an answer, will I need any special math or stuff in order to do this? I've got all summer to work on this. Sorry for asking so much! I do understand how 3d graphics are represented (polygons, vertices, edges) though. I don't have any ...

So should I learn python? If so should I find a book or an online tutorial (duh)? What is the use of the API? What I mean is, should I learn python, the API, both, what is the point of the API? Thank you so much for the help! Also: is python like most compiled languages? With simple common features ...

I want to make an exporter...

I wish to make an exporter for blender. This exporter will convert blender 3d models into some formats that will be put into a certain game. I need to know: is there any special math I may need to know? Any languages? The blender format and/or the games format? I don't even have a clue where to star...
