How can I turn "shadeless" on?


(Jackc) #1

Hi,
I’m a new user of Blend, and I’m learning how to use it by following the tutorial of how to make a shockwave. In the tutorial the author requires me to turn “shadeless” on after I press the “material” button, however, I couldn 't find that option even after searching for it for 30 minutes. Can someone please help me out?

Your help will be most appreciated. Thank you.

Right in the middle of the Material Button window, there is a column with eleven pale purple buttons. The third from the top is the Shadeless one.

If there are no buttons in the Material Button window, you didn’t asign a material to your object ( In the header of the Buttons window there is a small button with a stroke, press it and choose Add new or an other existing material.)

If you have asigned a material and the Shadeless button isn’t visible, you have probably set the material to Halo.

I’m sorry :frowning: , but I still can’t find the button, even the ones you mentioned. I think I’ll need a manual that tells me where every buttom is so that I can follow the tutorials. Can you please tell me where I can download the manual for Blender? I feel like lost in a big maze when I run Blender.

Thanks.

You should try the Juicy Blender tutorials. It is very geared toward newbies, and it explains everything in quite a number of details.
