Arabic Videotutorials

16

arab.pngSamran Abed Alsalam sent me a list of 10 Blender video-tutorial in Arabic. Now I know that this will be of little use to many of you but the reason I'm posting these tutorials is that I think they are very well produced. Give it a try: look at one of them and see if you can follow the story. I watched the episode on MultiRes meshes and I think I learned a thing or two.

What I like about these tutorials:

  • I like the voice of the speaker and the pace of his story. Obviously I don't understand what he says, but maybe that makes it easier to listen to *how* he speaks and not to what he says.
  • I also like how he systematically explains each button in the MultiRes panel. He clicks on each of them and shows its effect.
  • I *think* he sometimes comes back to something he has already covered, just to make sure you've understood it correctly.

What I think could be improved:

  • Too much mouse movement. I'll just keep repeating this until everyone learns how to stop moving the mouse unless it's relevant.
  • Uninteresting models. Watching a sphere in multiple resolutions isn't exactly exciting.

Anyway, if you speak Arab - enjoy! If you don't: watch and learn. To read more of my thoughts on good video tutorials, check out 'How to Produce a Good Videotutorial'

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. These tutorials are awesome. By being forced to start from nothing (assuming that the viewer can't refer to any of the previous blender references) this allows us to rediscover not just new and up-coming features of Blender, but even the oldies. I never before realized the worth of the lattice for example, because I was never a fan of that ugly little man that proclaims "I hate lattices!" who is stuck into a bottle for some reason. There's so much finesse in every second. I was truly entertained and will recommend this collection to anyone.

  2. Thanks to BlenderNation for Helping Spreading Blender3d in the world and we want you to know that in our arab world there are many many marvellous people who are creators in the world of 3d

    and one of them is Moh Taia (Mohammed Taia) and SAMRAN and JASSAR who use Blender3d

    thanks for BlenderNation

  5. Thanks blendernation for finding these and thank you moh taia! Its very inspiring to watch these. Any chance of subtitling these videos? I'm asking cause these seem the best tutorials of blender out there. Either way there sweet! :)

  6. Marhaban ya shabab!
    I rejoiced at the news of Blender tutorials in Arabic, but when I went to the site all the links seem to be broken.
    The http://www.ksaplanet.com/download/blender/2%20Intro%203d%20View.rar for example, leads me nowhere and it seems that ksaplanet.com is registered but not an active domain.
    Since there are so many people in the new democratic Egypt, where we work, eager to lealrn to use Blender to help with sustainable development projects, we would love the ability to share these tutorials with them.
    Can anybody provide us with another link to the videos?
    Shukran, wa Allah ma'akum!
