Videotutorials: Blender 3D Workshop


Gorilla3dSutabi is working on a series of Blender video tutorials that explain how the basics of Blender work. So far, he has tutorials about how work with the Window Layout, the Window Header, the Buttons Window and how to change Blender's Fonts.

On Elysiun, he writes:

The set of video tutorials that are to come are meant to teach people about using blender. I do plan to go into every aspect of blender, but I am just tring to figure out a good way to start people off first. So far I am figuring most people need to learn the interface, then basic construction of a scene, some modeling then they usally go off into Rendering, Script or Blender GE. And they all pull into different area of blender, but tend to use the same workflow.

I like Sutabi's quiet style of explaining how things work in Blender (I'm a big Bob Ross fan, so go figue) and also the fact that he has created many small tutorials instead of a single big one. That way, it's much easier to pick just the part that you need.

So far, he has 7 tutorials on his site and the table of content mentions 22 more. I hope he will keep working on them. If you're just starting to figure out Blender's user interface then this set of tutorials is highly recommended!

Hey Sutabi: as an incentive, I'll publish about your website again once you have another 7 tutorials up :) (Just let me know when they're ready). One hint for the next ones: try to avoid recording crashing applications and other errors ;-)

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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Sutabi also writes something about GE. I don't see GE in his content list on the site!?
    But it's like "YES" to have video tutorials(i hope there come a lot more about the Game Engine, because there are to less of them, and to beginner)

  2. I posted this on Elysiun too, but just for anyone reading here... vodcasting is a great way to publish video tutorials. In programs like Democracy Player, you can subscribe to them like episodes on a TV guide. Izzy Video is a great example -- it's a video tutorial program, with so far about 21 episodes of just about ten or fifteen minutes each, all about shooting video with a camera, getting good lighting, etc. Well worth checking out for Blender users :)

  3. Sounds great. Sounds like he is going to cover everything but neither can I see the GE tuts, none on the compisitor (or whatever it's called the video editing part)and I can't see anything about animation either.

    What does "vodcasting" mean? Is it podcasting with video?

  4. Well it sounds Great Men, I have people Bugging me to teach blender and you are about to relieve me of this Big Stress. Its nice of you to Think that one out. Thumbs Up and hope to see your works!
