I was given an art assignment the other day and have decided to do an interactive artwork. Now I have about 4 weeks to learn the blender gaming engine and modling engine (If it has gone nowhere In a week or two, I will create a non-interactive work in Strata 3D). I am confident with my Python knowledge to make light work of understanding the programming side of it but have a few questions about the blender engine itself.
How do I make the game focus inside a camera when the game starts?
How am I able to turn the camera by moving the camera, just for a basic look tool?
How would I go about turning the camera sideways with the arrow keys?
If I made a rose pedal, how would I create several to fall down in the motion of a leaf or feather and teleport up to the top of the room again to fall back down? (These can be ghosts)
Thanks for all your help. Any good tutorials to start me on my way would also be greatly appreciated.
