I am a blender noob (in that I have known about blender for the past 3 odd years or so)
I have always wanted to ‘dable’ in the 3d realm but every single time I installed blender, I used to get intimidated/confused/scared/confused and confused with the UI.
At this time I also started with Linux.
I managed to force myself to understand Linux to a usable degree and now am comfortable with Linux (Not that it has much to do with this… except, I decided to adopt the same attitude with blender)
Lo and behold, I installed 2.43 and decided to go through the noob to pro tutorial/manual (Which I obviously havent finished)
As soon as I discovered (2 days max) that the UI is actually very very user friendly & completely understandable, I am now so addicted to blender, I find it hard to stop what ever I am busy playing with (in blender)
(I should change my username to fanboy hehehe)
Anyway, just to say Hi, I am a noob, can do the basics and love this software, and I will probably be asking for help in the future (or links to threads etc).
Thanx to all who make blender the #1 all in one software for animation, rendering, etc etc, (Hell, I think you can even get blender to make coffee and do shopping)
Nice to be here and I will now go surf the forums for more fun projects to start stimulating my creative side.
