Videos of Upcoming 2.46 Functionality


Do you know how to use all the new tools of the upcoming Blender 2.46? No? Would you like to learn how to use some of them with a set of video tutorials? Now you can!

A Blender artist from the French Blender forums Blender Clan, has published a set of videos, showing how to use some of the new features of Blender 2.46. There are videos about:

  • Soft shadows
  • Explode Modifier
  • New particles
  • New UV tools
  • Constraints
  • Bone Groups
  • MeshDeform Modifier
  • Bevel Modifier
  • Node editor

This is just a short list, there are almost twenty videos available to download! If you want to download them, visit this link at Blender Clan.

And have fun!


  1. Neat! Now to just wait till it comes out as an .exe and then off we go! Way-to-go pose libraries! (I've heard they are going to be a feature...)

  2. hello everybody,
    i'm really happy to see my videos enjoy you ^^.
    As my friend ebrain said the links are now in english, so you must not be lost.


    PS : there is no sound, for less of weight

  3. pole target, useful, I did that before with empties and other stuff, but that seems better.

    and all the other features, really useful. Videos seem by far the easiest and fastest way to learn new features...

  4. I've had no trouble with Windows Media Player, but I've added so many codecs to this system that I doubt that means much. But since there's no sound at all in any of the videos, they're essentially language-neutral. They just show off the new features.

    And oh my, some of them look tasty!

  5. I just get a codec error. If the same occurs for most other Windows users, then it's a rather silly choice of format.

  6. ehm...

    Zoom Player free version, in windows, no problems...must be a matter of played great...I didnt need even hear it, I dunno but I just watch what happens there to understand it. And often is just needed the new parameters...If you know blender, is very self explanatory, ones of the most clear for me... I have downloaded all as will take you mins to learn features that otherwise might get you stuck longer for not knowing the workflow or that or that other parameter...

    looks like, judging by camstudio last screen in their videos, is xvid codec. Also it has that special look of divx/xvid compression, which is quite convenient for playback smoothness/size.I like a lot techsmith codec as well, but that's way less common.

    I dunno if installing just divx then you can play these, as I think I tested that long ago, and I' m able to play these, while only have divx. Most tutorials of other 3D packages are in divx codec, so is neither rare that these com in xvid, which is similar. , if you don't find compiled xvid codecs at Actually xvid I think was sort of an alternative to divx in linux platform...not sure, don't quote me on that...

  7. Most of these videos are really awful... Yucky compression, comic sans, bad theme colors, dizzying mouse movements, and too many steps to show off simple processes.

  8. Bravo, même si vous ne prétendez pas avoir réalisé de vrais tutos, avec mes connaissances de bases, j'ai réussi à reproduire et comprendre certaines "démos". Intéressant travail...
    A quand les tutos...
