I am wanting to learn Blender and I want to buy ‘The Official Blender 2.3 Guide’ to help me do this.
I assume this still comes with a copy of the actual Blender program on the book’s accompanying CD - as referred to in a review at Amazon.com - but since this isn’t explicitly stated on the item’s page in the Blender e-shop, I am not certain it actually does.
Clarification of this will be much appreciated.
Why not just download it – it is only about 5 mb. You can get all of the different versions here
I would reccomend 2.37a to go with the manual until you get your feet under you.
OK, thanks for that link & advice - getting the right version was my main concern.
The one that comes with the book is lke 2.36, it’s old.
P.S. Welcome to ElYsiun!
Thank you - great to be here.
Not only was that my first post to elYsiun but my first ever post to an Internet forum, so I am greeeeeen, guys. %|
Though I have lurked a bit here and there over the years, to be sure.
I’ll stop rambling and go order that Blender book now, then!
No fair, the book I got came with blender 2.30. It didn’t even explain anything about raytracing…
The book is based on Blender 2.33
If you use a version other than 2.33 there will be things that you need to do slightly different which may cause you a bit of confusion.
I hear you - thanks for that.
