Reynante M. Martin demonstrates another hidden interface trick: using your mousewheel to quickly change color brightness in the node editor.

In this Blender Quick Tip, I'll show you how you can easily alter the value or brightness of a certain hue. This technique also applies to changing the numerical values of sliders and related fields.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)
