    Blender

    Ceedub recently said she's been using it for years and S'Cunt has mentioned it as well.

    As a Blender newb are there any tips/suggestions I ought to know about?

    don't you need a good graphic card to run that?

      I dunno.
      I've had this laptop for years... upgraded the OS to Win10 but everything else is the same.
      Blender has only crashed on me once and I'm pretty sure that's only because I'm a newb and asked it to do something stupid.

      **addendum**

      I looked it up and my graphics card is: NVidia Geforce GTX 680M

        Blender is excellent open source goodness. Minimum requirement: be less than 10 years old. ; )

          I never realized how much joy one could feel just by making the spheres bounce when they hit the inclined plane.
          Amazing.

          I don't have any tips or suggestions to make that could be better than playing with it yourself, or perhaps reading some tutorials. My learning process is rather random or haphazard, so it wouldn't transfer well into something that might be a good guide for someone else.
          Also, giving guidance seems too much like work.

                I'm using mine predominantly for content generation in Agni, mesh models of clothes and attachments for avatars, along with a few bespoke items for various builds, occasionally to provoke an emotional response but more often than not to just to generate a little pocket money.

                Blender is a fun little tool once you wrap your head about it, I don't see that there's much that it can do in a messageboard that is not already covered by programs like Photoshop and Gimp, but you might still have fun with it.

                    This is what the world needs. More elegant ways to say go fuck yourself.

                    I loved the way DeSantis told Joe to go fuck himself on the conference call... that was epic.

                  First attempt at an intro/outro (Lulztastic Planet)
                  I think I might like the particles better with the "Boids" setting (flying up and around instead of falling/bouncing) but I wanted to do an upload and this is what I have so far.

                    Initial reaction:
                    The ominous audio does not match the cheery and festive look of the video portion.

                    The text 'the inevitable result' does.

                    cw_ :

                    I had 'sinister-laugh2.mp3' laying around and it was basically the right length. Final version of the clip (the video portion still needs work) will have just ambient noise or something... I need to comb through my SFX files to see what's there and maybe scrounge up some new ones too.

                  Getting there...

                    It's shed the x-mas card vibe.

                  Okay so I took a shortcut and used HitFilm for the lightning but I wanted to be done with this particular project.

                    I thought the 'Boids' were more lulz-like than this lightning is.
                    And at least 100 characters agree with me. ; )

                    cw_ :

                    Next time I'll start off with a better concept for "Lulztastic" instead of just throwing down some text and going: Okay now what?

                    It was fun but I'm ready to do something completely different.
                Working...
