[SOLVED] Blender Book

Post by iblues1976 » Mon Nov 21, 2011 8:13 pm

Hi,

I searched the forums. I was wondering if someone can point me to a good blender book, primarly to use it as an export tool. For example, I was having a problem and someone told me that I had to hit Control-A to "realize" the transforms.

I'm not an artist, just a programmer, so it will be helpful if there is a book that can help me. At the same time, I don't have the skills or creativity to do the art in blender, so just basic stuff how to get around.

Or do you guys think that a book is not needed?

thanks,
Francisco

Perfectly good question. :)

May I suggest that you search YouTube for Blender 3D tutorials?

As for Blender books, I know that they've got a fairly extensive wiki (with books - wikibooks).

I have decided for this book:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/024081 ... 00_details

Note that I don't like to read much online... meaning in the computer. However, I have to say that the video tutorials in blender site are great. At least for what I need. I'm a developer, so there is no way that I'm going to do great things. I just need the basics, to use existing models.

I have to say, while not related to the topic, that ogre has great tutorials online.
