What I don’t know is which of all Builds of Blender (32), whatever version, is my realm of best response etc?
For instance I’ve run 2.62.3 with cycles and it looks kind of sketchy. I don’t think its supposed be faint is it? What is the minimum equipment capability needed to run these latest builds. I don’t mind crashing, occasionally, as I don’t always know what I’m doing etc.
And what in the heck is BMESH and how does one use it, or find it?
I have been using blender since 2.4 and I am still groping about. I’m an old man who just always wanted to draw in true 3d , back when all there was was Autocad.
I want to say that Blender is the Best for learning true3D of all programs I’ve tried. It is the most intuitive, when I try to click and make or move “something” the program either makes or moves something. To me, a relative newbie ( there is a proper spelling for that )
That is revelational ( to me ). try that in maya or 3ds max or min, blindly clicking in edit mode in 3d space, and see how long it takes to get anything.
I have posted a victorian cottage on Blendswap. its not like i’m completely clueless. But When I see these video shorts and movies people are making, I feel like Bill Gates “IN The Road Ahead”. For the life of me I have yet to successfully build a car. I have gotten a Tyre or two made but then that tool for arraying in a circle, not spin, doesn’t work. or didn’t. Its like Maya, the tools are there, the tutorial is there, but it doesn’t necessarily work on the piece of crap (computer) I’m using. because I’m poor. But because Blender is free, it tricks me into thinking that it will run on my crap.
I know that there are expert professional code warriors putting this beautifully elegantly coded package together and streamlining it. it is going to be the worlds BEST software. I’ll bet that it will be used by Governments and Institutions around the world. I just hope that I can get my hands on a machine that would live up to the level that the various tools and branches are being brought to.
I’m really just looking for sympathy, and that guy Johnathan W made the best Human mesh I have ever seen.
You could say, in regards to 3d (especially animation) I look confused:confused:, but actually am just a little dumb. Not any blender’s problem.:no:
