I have noticed in tutorials and support responses to questions concerning Blender folders state that there is a .blender folder, within it a scripts folder and a folder for the Python files (.py). I’ve seen references to the following file path:
C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender.blender…
Sometimes, what follows the “.blender]” is another folder, like “scripts”.
My version of Blender (2.45 for Windows, 32 bit) did not seem to include the .blender folder, thus nothing within the .blender folder. It contains the Blender folder within the Blender Foundation folder. What’s in the Blender folder are various files, but no folders.
Now, I wonder, is the download link for the 11MB Blender Zip Archives not what I assumed (Another packaged version of the same program - Blender3D)? Is it something I also needed to download? (I downloaded the 8MB Installer next to the Blender Zip Archives download link.)
If all I am missing are a few files that I can create the old fashioned new-file making way, then this is no issue with me. I just want to know if I needed to download something else to make my basic Blender program complete before I start adding more things to it.
Also, I don’t see a .blend file with that shiny orange and white 2d button of the .blend stuff I already created. (Thanks to the blender - wiki make person, hate and landscape tutorial). Other .blend files, yes. My own? No.
Thanks in advance to anyone that clarifies this matter for me.
