DVD output

Could a fuction be added to blender that outputs realtime features as interactive menus for a DVD title? And maybe another feature for outputing mpeg2 content from the compositor to a DVD as video chapters. I had thought of this some time ago and had forgot about it. It seemed like a good idea at th...

Also a corresponding tutorial .blend scene file database would be needed to give students access to the process that the were learning about. We more advanced Blender users could contribute some scene files to this database to get things going.

Great idea Landis! This type of setup could really help all of us in our problem solving. This "think tank" of problems and solutions would be of much aid to all Blender users.

If Blender Had....

Wouldn't it be great if we had Blender scenes that we could use as guides for our work? Or wouldn't it rock to have materials that are linked to auto lighting scene setups? These scene settings and auto lighted linked materials can be easily altered to custom settings- Scenes like- -A park scene -A ...

Excuse me? Just pump up the version number add in some half baked features and undigested concepts and call it a release? What do you think this is commercial software development? Aren't there enough 3d software options for people like this, maya , max, etc? I sometimes wonder why they even bother...

I love the new updated version. I don't know if this has been said before, but the famous OBJ script still will not run in the new 2.28 version. I guess we have to use ver. 2.23 for OBJ imports and exports for now

Imagine a funny animation of a bird walking on flypaper. Each time he lifts his foot the flypaper follows and is deformed and pulled up due to the effector at the base of each foot. The soft selection mesh group areas assigned on the paper could be parented to the effector not the feet. Or remember ...

One major reason for mentioning the above features is that I want to do an animation in which an object moves under the skin of another object. At the same time the top object will ripple slightly around the deformed effected area due to the effector nature of controlling an area based on the positi...

If an edge tool solution came to Blender in the form of a added python interface like Makehuman, I'd say yes!
