Interpreting A Tutorial [Blender]

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, In : Learning 
Hey all!

Yay, third video of 2019!! GOD is so good!

Here it is:
GOD is so good!!!

The aim of this video is really to get you into the frame of mind to learn what it takes to take any tutorial that might prove useful to you and use it in any engine in Blender (to some extent obviously). Since all engines are not the same, results will vary between engines, but you can still get a lot of value out of old tutorials while you switch to 2.8! It'll get you over that educational learning curve and not o...

Default project?_huh

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, October 18, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Today I bring you a QBT that I find incredibly useful and yet it works for you, passively; the default project in Blender.

When you open Blender, it opens with "factory" settings, which is usually a camera, cube and a light with either Cycles Render or Blender Render as the default engine. Also, most of the Add-ons are turned off, so your functionality is a lot less varied.

Here's where it becomes helpful; you can change this default project.

It is very simple and here's how:
- Open Blend...

Texture baking, basically

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, September 5, 2013, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Today I am enabled to bring you yet another tutorial! Who's as excited as I am? lol

I'm gonna let the image intro this one:


That's right! Basic Texture Baking!

Texture baking, what's that?! Simple, in Blender, you have what is known as procedural textures, node textures and a feature called texture painting. These features all have one thing in common; Blender. I can't export a model to another 3D program, unless I bake my textures or make them externally. While texture painting is easil...

Caustics in Cycles

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, In : General 
Who knows what caustics are?
Well, as simply put as I can:
It's the light pattern you see after light has passed through a transparent medium, such as glass. Great examples are of course the following:
 - Light stripes at the bottom of the pool
 - Rainbow lights when light shines through cut crystal
 - That focus point you can get with a magnifying glass
 - And naturally this:

(Photo I took earlier this year that I wanted to maybe do as an exercise in Cycles)

Those white light spots you see that come...

Cycles part started!!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, September 10, 2012, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!!

I've been a bit quiet lately, because I've been finishing up the Blender Render section of the book and today I started with the Cycles Render section!!! Yey!!

The main focus for today I wanted to be caustics at one point, but then I realized it's more important to find out how in the world you can layer the textures like in Blender Render and HE helped me by reminding me of a tutorial Andrew did. His introduction to Cycles tutorial to be precise. Anyway, the details on the how is for...

Sneak peak at the next possible tutorial's work

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, March 5, 2012, In : wip 
I really want to start with a massive commercial tutorial for Blender Render and Cycles, focusing on procedural textures and what you can do with them. Like the one already done, except very very much expanded.

So, as I said, this is something I want to do, but can't make any promises yet.

Here is an image I made with Blender Render (aka Blender Internal) that I would like  to use as a title page for the Blender Render section:

This image took a day's ...

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
Revelation 22:18-21
