Video tutorials needed

Post by myamee »

Hello to all,
I like the things that blender has to offer. I have a basic knowledge base of other 3d apps such as 3ds max, and xsi. I can function through them of the video learning that I have received from http://www.3d-palace.com. They how ever do not have any thing for blender. Some of 3d-pace video tutorials have made it into 3d World Magazine. I have looked though the threads here to see sites providing tutorials in video for blender. I have found six sites so far that are ok that I have downloaded. Thanks to them I have an understanding how blender works. It would be nice to see a human, car or machine modeled in blender in video.
What I am requesting from some of you is a chance to show case your skills in modeling to the rest of the 3d population that are using the big gun’s such as Maya, max and xsi. Let them know what blender can do. There are a lot of gamers out there using illegal pirate apps, blender is a better alternative, and I know you all agree.
I talked to Cris at 3d-palace and he would not mind showcasing any one skilled in blender. Take a look at what these guys are doing in other apps, and tell me if you guys can do so in blender. I think of blender as David and the others as Goliath. Just keep in mind that 3d-palace offers free training and for their more extensive in depth tutorials are sponsored to gain access. If you guys can do something cool simple and not necessarily over the top for a basic knowledge of modeling in blender would do. You could use this as a stepping stone to market your other efforts that would be in minute detail of your blender skills.
You may just end up featured in 3d World Magazine.
In all keep blending.

There are several of us at http://www.blendertraining.org that are working on just such a concept. We are blender new-intermediate users who would like to share knowledge between us to help us learn the package. The site has been sitting dormant for a few months. A site redesign (and video submittal system) is in the works for Summer of this year for launch hopefully by Fall 2004. Hopefully once the site gets launched, we can attract talented blender users to submit video tuts on many things. We offer to "edit" the submitted tut to make it more usable for mass consumption.

I remember Ton mentioning something on the listserv about wanting more vid tuts in general. I'm not sure if the "official" documentation team has picked up on this or not.

If you can get others to create video tuts on ANY site (or find any vid tuts for blender), let me know!. It's been frustrating to try to learn blender limited by webpage written tutorials. A great deal of the advanced concepts in these tuts don't seem to jump off the pages at me. I'd rather "see" the artist work and listen to him/her. Well, learning preference on my part.

What is with Flash-"Videos" build with WINK?

Post by Helmuti_pdorf »

I detected Wink from Satish Kumar ( Thanks Satish!) on

www.debugmode.com

It is free (!), a gift from him and a wonderfull tool to build
"Video"-Tutorials on a Macromedia Flash-basis.
I know this would work only on a Flash-basis.
But most of the windows user with Internet Explorer have it free downloaded and in use.

It is easy to use and wonderfull described in its userguide!
It creates a htm file with a very compressed "Movie" with inbetweens ( Cursor Movements) , back, next , buttons with two extra possibilities to jump to another picture in the stream and
free text- overlays ( for declrarations)
on every "captured" Screens/ Pivture/Window from an applikation.

I made a lot of Tutorials with "Wink", hundreds of Pictures captures into many Movies, compressed perhaps to 90 % of the original Screenshots(.jpg)

Alone the userguide and the 2 Help tutorials in Wink itself are a hit!

Allways good enough for a try!

regards
Helmuti

For windows you can get camstudio for free (only requires registration). You have to google for it (some site called brothersoft, or something like that, has it).

I am trying my hand at makign video tutorials.

here are some links. I use bz2 compression. The zip file includes the bz2'd video, bz2.exe [72kb], and a expandit.bat file which decompresses the video.

There is no audio though, and they are not so basic tutorials.

Here are some instructions on making the microwave tutorial.

short cut

Post by myamee »

iluvblender your good.
Thanks for your tutorials. I saw that you used a short cut key to subdivide in the microwave tut. Can you please tell me what keys you used besides accessing it from the "w" key?

Any time that you would like to come and make video tutorials using Blender for 3d-palace, please do let me know by PM over at the site. We have plenty of bandwidth and I think that being able to push the merits of Blender to people by way of video tutorials is a very positive step to get new users into the software.

Anyway, great work!

Cris
