  1. The videos look good to me :)
    to find them go to youtube and and a /bitsofblender at the end of the address

  2. Sorry about the link issue folks. Bart thanks for catching that. Yesterday was a bit crazy for me, normally I check the links, guess I was too rushed.

  3. Yeah Bart. Don't fire the poor guy. He's awesome. :)

    Now I can go to bed knowing that I helped Tim keep his job. ^_^

  4. My intent for Bits of Blender is for it to be (for the most part) a set of quick reference videos on Blender features, and a fun thing to do with my boy (who's a 9-year old Blenderhead). I hope to keep adding to them on a regular basis, though I imagine winter will be more productive than summer ;-)

  5. "Why BoB?"

    Boy, that phrase scared me. I thought we were going to have to go back to Microsoft's Bob to use these videos!

  6. Hi MrPerlishells, the intent of Bit #2 is to show changes to preference defaults from the previous version that surprised me. One of the things that surprised me was having to do something different to see the scripts :)

    Just to make sure I'm not completely insane... I just un-installed and re-installed Blender to re-confirm the behavior. The "Re-evaluate scripts registration in menus" button did not work for me when I accept all of the installer's default settings. Clicking the button results in an "Invalid scripts dir: check console" error, in which there is nothing in the console. Then when I quit and relaunch Blender and try it again, I get no error, yet the scripts still do not show up. In order to get the scripts to show, I needed to navigate to the location, which on my machine is in in: C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\.blender\scripts. Selecting the "Installation Directory" option worked fine and in the manner I was previously accustomed.

    Personally, I prefer the scripts in the Blender application folder as it is easier for me to find them :)
