I am again trying to learn Blender (this is my second attempt). Right now I am currently going through the Essential Training at Lynda.com, given by Roger Wickes.
I am coming from an Animation:Master background first (patches) and then later I was heavily into XSI by Softimage for awhile, where I learned polys. I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but man, everything in Blender just seems backwards. It’s been a real challenge to learn things. (Selecting things with the right mouse button… driving me insane.)
Anyway, I’m going through the modeling lessons right now. They are pretty good but I’m wondering how his lessons stack up to what the community sees as really good modeling lessons (and other lessons) out there. I know there are links here, but I am looking for specific recommendations.
I’ve actually forgotten most of what I knew from XSI, so in a way I’m starting fresh. It’s just intuitively things seems odd, so it’s tricky. I’m starting to get a bit of a handle on things, but any suggestions would be really appreciated.
