I’m a long time professional user/owner of Lightwave and Maya but I can’t keep spending money on upgrades just to keep up with the features ‘arms race’. So that’s it, for once and all I’m diving into Blender.
I’ve bought the Essential Blender book and am going through it. I like [very much] what I see so far. I’m not sure if you guys who have only used Blender, realise how ‘cutting edge’ Blender’s feature list is?
I’m just posting really, to see if there are any other users in a similar position to myself. And to see if there are any tricks or hints to get into the user interface of Blender faster (I’m impatient to use all the great features :eyebrowlift:)?
To kick things off, so far the snapping in Blender seems a bit ‘clunky’ to me as it’s a two part process (cursor to selection -> other object to cursor) In maya I can hold down the ‘v’ key for vertex snap as I move selections around and it snaps to the vert I’m nearest to.
Does Blender have something like this? Or do I have to use the 3D cursor?
