Raimon has published a useful quickstart cheatsheet for Blender in Catalan and English.
I liked so much the way old Blender 2.41 Quickstart presents in a nutshell the basics of Blender. I teach Blender so I know how valuable are this kind of resources when we are on thight schedules. We need to boost the ability of the students in basic principles so they can dive more easily into other concepts not so elementary but important.
Again as a teacher, 2.5 releases were a challenge for me. So I prepared a new version for 2.5 releases of Blender. There are no big changes respect the old version (Blender is still Blender!); I did basically some corrections and additional informations on ways to do things in Blender 2.5x. Hope you find useful, be in an education context for your students or if you are just starting in learning Blender.
There is a Catalan version, the English one, and the source files in Inkscape SVG format.
My english is not my strongest skill, or I could leave away things you find relevant, so feel free to improve it.
Molt bé, Raimon. Bona feina :)
Great Idea! Thanks!
In the English version you forgot to translate this words: moure, rotar, escalar (Step 4) ;)
Magnifica eina Raimon, moltes gràcies.
Great tool, Thanks.
I'm glad you find useful.
Alex, thanks for reporting "this bug" :). Corrected on both english PDF and SVG source files.
By the way, I just renewed a bit my website, so you can take a ride and see for example my 3D portfolio, http://www.imatgedart.com/wp/portafolis/category/3D
Raimon: Can I translate it to Spanish and distribute it (free)? :)
Hola Alberto, tengo la mitad del trabajo hecho, si quieres te lo paso.
Great job, Thank you very much.
Could I ask the same question with Alberto's for Japanese?
I am impressed much and would like to have one in my language,
and hear several people think so too.
Alberto, jaguar, I think the answer is obviously yes (and you're encouraged to do so) ! I've translated this Quickstart from the work done by the Blender Team in the 2.41 days, and I must admit that I don't have asked for permission to do so... I took this documentation like GPL, so I was only worried about giving proper credit for the work done previously of mine.
Actually my work on the english version is more about graphic layout and updating some bits, so the main credit goes to the Blender Team who wrote this Quickstart some years ago. Obiously it took several hours for me to layout and translate this, so if you find my involvement useful in what you're about to release, crediting me is encouraged ("Raimon Guarro i Nogués http://www.imatgedart.com", you can find it on the Quickstart itself)
BTW, Alberto, Pablo Lizardo translated this 2.41 Quickstart to spanish, so perhaps you can get inspired by his work as I was in order to translate english to catalan. Here http://www.imatgedart.com/wiki/serveis:formacio:blender:doc:basicstart249b you can download it (first document)
Hope I'm explaining and excuse my english!
Thank you very much.
@Raimon Thanks :) don't worry, my English isn't the best ^^
I've done a french (canadian french) version of the quickstart...
Probably will need some minor correction to the wording. Kept it as true to the original as possible but there's some differences in the language that can't be easily translated.
good work too. Actually Pablo Lizardo translated to spanish the 2.41 Quickstart, not this one. But I kept him in the acknowlegements to credit a work that I used extensively for myself and for my Blender students too, and as an obvious inspiration in my commit to do this translation and update.
It seems that Alberto is going to make the actual translation of this Quickstart to spanish. We're looking forward to see it ;) !
PS: Found another couple of untranslated words in my english version :)
Thx Raimon, very useful.
pm Raimon, moltes gràcies, molt pràctic,
