Nodes Tutorial

Any idea where I may find a good tutorial for nodes ?

I don’t think there are any tutorials yet. I think it is just a case of two things:

  • Looking around the forum for information.
  • ExperimentingNodes are the sort of thing for which there are tecniques, and methods for various tasks; but for some things, the only way to find out is to play with them until it does what you want:).

For option 1, try these:

http://mediawiki.blender.org/index.php/Release_Notes/Notes242/NodeMaterials
http://mediawiki.blender.org/index.php/Release_Notes/Notes242/NodeCompositor

Thanks for asking, actually, because I just found the release notes (in progress) for Blender 2.42:D:D:D.

Hi

I reckon the best info on compositing with nodes is in the book by Steve Wright:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0240804554/103-4502736-7255844?v=glance&n=283155

Its a tad expensive, but its probably the best book for it’s field.

Blender has most of the nodes it mentions, except the channel math, and combine RGB ( which is missing for some bizarre reason)…
