New tutorial, a wip

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, November 15, 2013, In : General 
Hey all,

I'm currently working on a new free tutorial and I'm really jazzed about posting it. Simply stated, it is how to make a speedometer and link it to a specific object. The same technique will be applicable in many other ways, but I'll add that in the tutorial :D.

Because of this work, I may not be able to enter the current Blender Guru Competition, but if I am able to, I would like to take a different approach and give you a behind the scenes type look of how I work.

Hey all!

Working hard to get it finished as soon as possible! The next section will be tutorials and after that a few more things and it should be ready for release! So looking forward to having it completed and I have really learned a huge amount in the writing of it!

Today was a continuation of the displacement feature for Cycles. After getting this result, it was very important to find out how to fix it:

"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."
