stiv> > Approached as a whole, Blender code is big and scary. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. I agree. And this is wise council. Unfortunately, I find that maybe I don't have the most discerning selection process, or maybe it's just dumb luck, or maybe it's just the way that it reall...

A couple of questions about libraries

I just have a couple of superficial questions about blender's libraries. I notice...just an observation, that there is no central math library, but it appears that various parts of the application use their own dedicated math functions. For example, I can access matrix functions here: blenlib/BLI_ma...

Greetings Ipo, This is my lamentation exactly. I too am trying to get my head around the blender code base and I am not sure if I ever will.

I guess I'll keep digging... and asking lots of questions. A big part of my problem is that...

Howdy forum members, I'm a new guy here trying to wrap my head around blender's code base<Ouch!> :shock: ... and as yet, things aren't going so well. None the less, frequently I try to pull up the blender.org website late in the evening [about 11 or 12 midnite eastern standard time USA] and find the...

Coding tutorials question?

Greetings! My name is Mark and I am interested in messing around with blender's code to see if I can make some plug-ins and what not. I have some fair familiarity with java programming and a decent understanding of programming concepts, but I am not a professional coder by means. It is a personal le...
