Yes - I am doing 2.5… publisher insists on it because 2.49 will be outdated so soon, so I just have to waork around what is available on 2.5 “as is”.
The book is all written, now is “revision” stage, although I only got a very short time (10 days) to do each of 12 chapters. Publisher put “Beginner” on the title, which I wish they hadn’t because I don’t see that attracting anyone who is into complex programs like Blender, and on one hand any time I explain one thing, they want me to explain all the alternative methods / buttons etc… while on the other hand, the minute I mention anything they are unfamiliar with (such as using nodes to tweak lightins) they go on the “not beginner” band wagon.
…still - I know subsurf is good, but given that I have already mentioned multiresolution… I’m wondering if there is any real reason to mention subsurf modifier. What can it do for a beginner that multires can’t?
