Need links to PDF tutorials


My computer that I use Blender on is not on the net. I need PDF tutorials (especially on Radiosity, GI, Yafray,) and some very complete instructional PDFs on modelling and blender functions in General. Only PDFs will due. Saving webpages doesn’t work for my comp.

Any good PDF links will due. I’m about mid-level in Blender, but theres lots of ground I still need to clear.


Blender Cafe has several, there’s one at the Inkulator page, Cog Films has several, and there are some off of the University of Waikato page.

For a solid, up-to-date introduction to most fundamental Blender features, take a look at the the PDF book in my sig below.

Thank you very much! I must have 7 new tutorials.

The BIG question: What about a Radiosity PDF? Does such a thing exist?

On that note, what about UV mapping PDF?

Thanks guys.

Hmm… don’t know of any, but I’ll keep an eye out. I’m on the lookout for a good UV mapping tutorial myself. :slight_smile:

I just recently (ok, late last night) “jumped off” that bridge. Although I will assume that you are much more familiar with Blender than I am, the two that I found helped me out. This one was real basic and then this one My sincere thanks to both individuals for taking the time to write these.


Thanks for the info. :slight_smile: I’ve done UV mapping in other software, and I’ve been wanting to give it a stab inside Blender to compare the process.
