Pfft, no way you can make art using something free. Is this dude high?
Jeah that title is so stupid.
Well, it’s not uncommon for people to think they have to buy commercial software to do high quality art. I thought the video did a good job showing some of Blender’s strengths and weaknesses is all.
Can this be done just for Blender, so that I can still use caps-lock for Word? As far as I can tell you can’t reguIarly assign caps-lock in Blender. I am on windows and my keyboard software has macro keys, I thus prefer not to use any conflicting software on top of it (e.g. Autohotkey).
I presume all those things are not available in the “public” build yet, right?
The commit was pushed on July 7th.
After that, there was one week of completion and fixes.
So, public builds for MacOS or Linux (dated of the 23th) are containing all last recent changes made to the branch.
Windows build (dated of the 11th) should not have Fill Holes, Orientation Lock options or support scale, symmetry and rotation. And a crash fix is missing. So, yes, for windows users, it should not be as usable.
To those who’d like to see a Blender build being up to date, here are instructions to generate your own updated custom build.
If anyone has generated a new build, please let us know here, so we can download it too, thanks.
I remap it in Window’s registry, so it’s in all software. I find Caps Lock to be irritating, so it’s the best way for me! If you want it only in Blender then autohotkey sounds like the way to go, although… you mention macro keys so you probably don’t need it?
Hmmm, that “buildbot” site looks kinda different now… can’t find the stuff from your instructions…
Did they nuked the entire thing?
Yeah, I see what you mean. I suspect the Blender staff / developers changed it because they didn’t like generation of custom builds being accessible to Blender users.
Then Windows users will need to wait until one of the Blender guys generates a new build.
