Blender Video Tutorials Galore!


Looking for a way to spend your Sunday?  (And probably a good part of the week as well, by the way). Check out this list of close to 100 free Blender 2.5 video tutorials by Neil Hirsig! They're all organized by topic, and as a starting Blender user this is a great way to learn your way around Blender.

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. I wish these type of videos were made when I started learning Blender. Specific and uncomplicated. But yeah no use for me either.

  2. I've been wanting to do a complete start-to-finish project in a stable 2.5
    I've been looking for a detailed non-video locomotive/steam engine tut. with all the piston specs.

    this site has a 300 page .pdf. on the modeling alone, then another .pdf for animation. This is exactly what I was looking for.


  3. This looks like an amazing resource! The amount of work put in is unbelievable! Extremely detailed and comprehensive, the resource is the first of its kind. It seems it's been around for a while, I wonder why it never got highlighted here. It's unique because it's a proper course, with all areas covered, not a random collection of tutorials.

  4. Favorited!! I also love the full-course style resources. Great job Neil! I'm going to forward this to some of my teachers/professors that use Blender in their classroom!

    Dear Editor,

    It seems a lot of these get posted on BlenderNation. But whenever I'm actually looking for a video tutorial, I first start at the site/wiki, and then do internet searches.

    I like to see the highlights here, with the community reviews, but it would be a great service to the reader if you also updated the Blender site with these.


    Dear Video Tutorial Posters,

    Please try whenever possible to make your videos downloadable in addition to offering a streaming option. Since I often read posts like this during breaks (at work, at school, etc.), I usually don't have the time to run Blender at the same time. When I'm at home, like many people, internet access is much slower or nonexistent. It's invaluable to have a downloaded video that I can play back later.


  5. I would like to have the splash page to link to something like this. Its a great way to jump into the software. A wiki docs site is great for more info, but finding what you want can take a long time, and sometimes you just cant find a good explanation for things. Quick videos is a great idea. I agree with other posts, most video tutorials don't cover features,just workflow of whatever project they are working on.
