  2. well, this is pleasant surprise! Thanks for noticing, BlenderNation! I wondered why there have been over 10,500 views in the past several weeks. I had thought about packaging them and selling them as a DVD, but with marketing and burning and shipping and fronting all that cost, in the face of very uncertain sales, I figured I'd just throw them out there and see if any stick and ask for a donation if you like them. I apologize for the poor quality/music on some of them; they were the rough drafts that I planned on re-mixing, but never got around to. I had/have dreams of doing Blender full-time, so I figured one way to really learn the package is to be able to teach it, and not just write about it in the wiki. I also need to update some of them for 2.46, and now that we have a gamma node the magic ball will look much better, and the new shaders make local distortion so much easier so I really need to re-do that one, never ends! Enjoy, and thank you for your support.
