I AM a beginner to blender. What’s the best way to ensure I have the right blender 2.25 version and a tutorial FOR THAT version? The interface is different everytime…
Get blender here http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/
Check the date a tutorial is released or that it says what version it is used for.
Generally any tutorial released in the last year will most likely be applicable (blender 2.5 or 2.6)
