Rocket Video Tutorial


Rocket Tutorial This video shows how to model, texture and light a rocket. It is mostly beneficial to new Blender users, but it does go through the entire process of creating a simple scene.

The entire length of the video is 20 minutes. But the video is accelerated 4x the speed. If you have some time to spare it might be worth checking out. Even in simple things like this you can catch a glimpse of something new.

I'd also like to point out the good bit of info that Bart gave us in a previous post, that you can also download these videos from the Google Video page (look for the ‘Download' button) as MP4, but you can also download the Flash movie file (*.flv) using VideoDL. (You can play .flv files with VLC). Also, using VLC you can slow down the playback speed and watch everything at a reasonable rate.

  1. Nice, but a little too fast for following all the small bits, it probably makes more sense to more seasoned blender users. Beginners would need to slow it down and get a better resolution.

  2. I agree, whats the point in posting a video tutorial, and speed it up by four times and expect people to be able to learn from it.

  3. I like the idea of being able to get a big picture by speeding it up. I guess there are many ways to do things and this is one of them. I liked it.

  4. DemocracyTV allows to download and store videos from google/yahoo/youtube.
    I use it to easily grab blender videos from those sites using the search section.

  5. i would rather call this video a "demo" than a "tutorial." although it is impressive, it's indeed way too fast @ 4x for a noob like me, and to be honest, i only learned one thing: man, long way to go for me *lol*.

    btw, i couldn't find any mp4 or flv link as mentioned by brian :(.


  6. Hello!

    I'm sorry, but I must agree with Marty and CKA: this is not a tutorial, but a demo. Blender is not a simple program; if one misses but one step, then unexpected results can and will arise, and only causes much more questions than the "tutorial" was supposed to solve.

    I thank the effort in creating these tutorials, but these should be very thorough, or at least state clearly the intended audience. Otherwise they might defeat the very objective they were written for.

    I might be blunt, but I have many a memory of photoshop "tutorials" with enormous gaps, and that only went so far as to explain "I took these two photos, adjusted curves, draw this and that, and voila!, a magnificent picture". And the picture was magnificent, indeed, but there was no way in hell that I could know what he did in between. Compare that to a thorough photoshop tutorial that explains everything step by step. I have seen a few, and even though problems did arise because they could not reflect every and each step, I got the expected results at the end.
