About the Author

Bart Veldhuizen

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. @Shan: hmm, the sound is fine here and yeah the framerate is a bit low but I guess that's to be expected if you want to fix 35 hours of video on one DVD ;-)

  2. If you intend to learn / are learning French, please do not use these video tutorials for reference ;-) They are FRAUGHT with mistakes (spelling, grammar, syntax, style, etc.)
    Other than that, nice tutorials.

  3. I've been surprised that such a big amalgam would have been published on an open source aware website like blendernation...

    That's not "PC Version", that's "Windows Version", please take consider this.

  4. I agree with YmD.

    The video tutorials given in the demo are full of mistakes. At least one in each text window. The video is also very slow and it is tedious.

    The animation about a character taking a cube doesn't seems very efficient. The way it is done, the cube will not move if the character is displaced.

    I'm really looking for some high level tutorial because I'm still rather weak in character animation, but this tutorial seems to be at very low level. I was happy to discover some tutorials in french, but I fear that these are not enough professionnal.

  5. I agree with YmD and Roubal.
    This could have been done as a PDF tutorial... Captions to show what is grab, push or move are OK but if you're going to recite the captions forget it... For me a video is more than screen captures, it shows movement.

  6. @ Ebrain, and all the people here... It doesn't matter if this is a "PC/ Windows" version! the most important is to deliver a good product. Take attention to the Andrew Kramer's DVD, where he shows how to creat a bullet in Blender/3dsmax/cinema4D. His dvd is very fine...smooth and really well done ;) So if the quality doesn't matters to you....I'm sorry guy
    @YmD..This guy is right. After rehearing the "demo version".... he makes some miskates :@ Alot
