What are are the most common troubleshooting problems people run into when they start using Blender? The sorts of things experienced users often overlook explaining?
To start the ball rolling;
- Black ares on the mesh: turns out to be reversed normals.
- Various modifiers / menus missing: need to install python (is this still an issue with 2.5?)
- Everything suddenly goes see-through. Likely to be caused by hitting Z (wireframe), although it’s also handy to know the occlusion button to prevent moving vertices on the wrong side of the mesh.
I’m about to wrap up a book on Blender and I’m seeking troubleshooting tips for the final summary chapter. Yes I could “make up my own” but then, I’d overlook the obvious… so, any ideas please?
