Learning Blender 2.6 from books for 2.49/2.5

Post by mikecook » Sun Dec 30, 2012 7:23 pm

I used to play around with modelling back in the Amiga days and I've been interested in checking out Blender for a while now.

At the moment Packt Publishing are running a promotion on ebooks (£3 each!!) and this seemed like a good opportunity to finally dive in, but I'm concerned that many of their books are for version 2.49 and 2.5.
  • Blender 3D 2.49 Architecture, Buildings, and Scenery
  • Blender 2.5 Materials and Textures Cookbook
I'm interested in these books as much for helping me around the Blender UI as learning modelling/texturing skills.

Does anyone know if I'd suffer greatly from buying either of these two books or should I only be looking at books published 2012 onwards?

Thanks for your help.

I just realised that this is probably the wrong forum to post these kinds of questions. Now that I've opened my eyes I see that Blender Artists is going to be more appropriate.

My apologies.
