basically my plan so far is to show the Elephant’s Dream, show some basic interface things by playing with the cube in a simple scene, play with the textures / material a bit. Then go into some works ive done with some renders and then show some animation ive done.
ive never touched the game engine and my animation skills are very primitave. I am basically competent in the following area
-working with vertices, lines, faces
-using bones for very simple animation
-rendering / lights
semi-competent in these
-Nurbs / curves
lost when it comes to game physics excetera
i plan to suggest installing Blender, Python, Yafray, GIMP, Mplayer, and Audacity now that you mention it. oh and of course my favorite browser Mozilla FireFox.
