Nooby in need of help
Posted: Sat Dec 09, 2006 10:41 pm
First off, let me apologise for being stupid.
I just downloaded the newest version of Blender... i've always wanted to do 3D animation and now i think i've acctually have a shot at making a small movie. Sad thing is; i'm not very savvy with this kind of stuff. Are there any tutorials that show how... *sigh*... how all the darned buttons work? All i see is a square and it's sort of scaring me at the moment. Any help would be appreciated. Move this to a different catagory if needed; or if it gets deleted any time soon you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the help!

Good places for de-noobification are the forums at blenderartists.org, and blendernation:
and of course, the online docs:
People here are discussing Blender development issues.
3D is cool. There is a lot to learn but remember: if one chimp can do it, so can another.

I don't know if you still need help, but, being myself a newbie, I found this to be the greatest help one could ask for.

After that, 'google' "blender tutorials" or something of the sort.

I sincerely wish you good luck in your Blending Taylor, but you should *really* choose another username when you participate in forums...
A little something from the Wikipidea:
Trolls can be costly in several ways. A troll can disrupt the discussion on a newsgroup, disseminate bad advice, and damage the feeling of trust in the newsgroup community. Furthermore, in a group that has become sensitized to trolling — where the rate of deception is high — many honestly naïve questions may be quickly rejected as trollings. This can be quite off-putting to the new user who upon venturing a first posting is immediately bombarded with angry accusations. Even if the accusation is unfounded, being branded a troll is quite damaging to one's online reputation.
" (Donath, 1999, p. 45)
The word "troll" carries a lot of negative connotations...

Why does blendernewbees have the realbasic logo?
Posted: Fri Feb 09, 2007 2:44 am
I just googled "realbasic" to take a look at their logo (I've never heard of them until now) and I can see a resemblance. But, their logo is orthographic and mine has perspective, plus the circle around it and the gradient background.
I think I spent about 3 minutes creating the logo graphic. I tried to create the simplest icon that reminded me of new users of 3D software. You know, those fabulous "look what I did!" cubes.
I'll probably revisit it before the official .com site is brought online. Maybe I'll add a "B" and an "N" to the two front faces, respectively. I can't believe that there will be any problems with the similarities, though.
Thanks for the heads-up!
