Blender 2.56b won't Run on old Ubuntu computer

Got an old salvaged Windows XP Home Edition computer a few months ago, internet wouldn't work on Windows so I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it. Long story short when I tried to run Blender 2.56b the screen goes black, and the only way I can go back to the desktop is by shutting the computer off, and res...

Import SVG Path

Back in 2.49 you'd go to the scripts window, import/path and you could import the .svg file there created in inkscape, gimp, illustrator, etc: In Blender 2.5.4 I can't seem to figure out how to import this file, can anyone help me out??? Also I'm an amd64 Linux user which is why I'm not using Blende...

Re: [Video Editing]Frame Rate Suggestion

With the bottom did you use alpha over/under, cause that's how you'd display the text above the video. Also use the compositor for video editing, there's so much more you can do with it, as the video sequence editor itself doesn't do everything I wish it did. I made a website called BlenderPimp , th...

I think I've seen this particular ad. before. It is kind of screwy, but from what I can understand I don't think it's illegal to use open source software as the basis of commercial software, but I wouldn't pay for this because it doesn't seem like any coding changes/improvements/additions have been...

Looks to me as if they have stole it, as the screenshots is Blender without a doubt the 2.49 version, and the 2.5 version.

Action needs to be taken with this fool

Re: how to use blender 2.54

CTRL+R ...

Left click and drag on the arrow (corner) that's right by the side you wanna join (as seen in the gif animation I made to answer this question below)

To split windows is the same way except you'd move your cursor the opposite direction.

Blitz is terrible, don't use it. I'd say Blender no doubt. I still haven't really got into game creation in Blender, but I've seen some very nice high quality games made in it, and some are really nice. here's a good video that has some great examples. If you wanna learn the Game Engine, or Blender ...

I thought of another update, mainly for the node editor, and/the video sequence editor. Ok well there's a plugin for Gimp called GMIC , and there's two filters in the plugin called Anisotropic smoothing, and Patch-based smoothing. Which in essence the filter softens images up. I personally mainly us...

I'd also like to see a way to render the project as an swf, and as a gif animation as well instead of importing the separate images into Gimp
