I got a real clue about lighting after reading this.

Okay, now the bad. I have three problems with this book: the index, the illustrations, and how it seems to forget that it's an introductory book in the middle of Part II and tries to be a reference instead, failing in the attempt.

The index. It's terrible.

Blender For Dummies

Over and over, I looked things up in the index and they weren't there. I wanted to find out how to do an extrusion. You'd look under "ex," right? Nothing there. I finally found it by flipping through the book; later I realized I should have used the table of contents, where one of the headings included extrusion.

I did find it later, as a subheading under "Edit mode". So yeah, if you already know Blender, and say to yourself, "okay, I want to go into edit mode and do some extrusion," then you have a chance in hell of finding which of the pages of text deal with extrusion. But if you are a beginner, which is the target audience for Dummies books like this, it's hopeless. The illustrations. Many of the illustrations are illegible.

On pages there is a sequence of literally postage-stamp sized comparisons of 10 different shaders. Many of the illustrations show important text as tiny and black text on gray background; or in some cases, dark-grey on medium-grey.

The illustrations need to be 1 larger and 2 preferably in color. The color picker, rendered in grayscale.

Now the reference-y bit. Instead of showing you how to do something, he starts just cataloging options of various operations.

What would have worked for these chapters is just to lay out how to do materials and textures, and then build from that. And one other thing.

I get that van Gumster is very, very good with Blender and probably has a lot of cool Blender-fu, and wants to show that off. But for an introductory book, he would be better off doing more introduction. I say with sadness that I found chapters 7 and 8 to be pretty useless for me due to the catalog-everything approach and the explication of esoteric techniques before the basics.

You can find a bunch of valuable little bits of information that may help you work more effectively. Regardless of how you read this book, though, my one hope is that you find it to be a valuable resource that allows you to flex your creative muscles and, more importantly, have fun doing it.

The entry cost is lower, but paying each month can still add up pretty quickly. There are some valid reasons for the high prices.

Software companies spend millions of dollars and countless hours developing these programs. But what about us, you and I: the little guys? We are the ambitious dreamers with big ideas, high motivation. How can we bring our ideas to life and our stories to screen, even if only on our own computer monitors?

Granted, we could shell out the cash and hopefully keep our arms for the expensive programs that the pros use. We need quality software and a strong community to work, grow, and evolve with. Fortunately, Blender can provide us with both of these things. This chapter is an introduction to Blender, its background, its interface, and its community.

What a mouthful, huh? Almost every major film and television show involves some kind of 3D computer graphics and animation.In the event that the courier company fails to deliver your order due to invalid address information, they will return the order back to Dymocks Online.

The index sucks, and in technical books, especially introductory ones, the index should not suck.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. But for an introductory book, he would be better off doing more introduction.
