Jakub Steiner from the Gnome Design Team explains how he uses Blender for motion design in the upcoming Gnome3 interface in this 5-part video. Highly recommended material!

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. Oops! Sorry about that folks! I'll just leave the post here as it would break our twitter/rss/ links otherwise.

    For all people who haven't seen this one yet - enjoy! :)

  2. I absolutely couldn't watch this for longer than a minute!
    He is not starting right away in any of the parts and he is not showing what the end result will look like and sorry but I don't wanna have my time wasted.

  3. @Marcus: exactly, it's slow, not clear.
    A evidence, again, that video tut isn't always the best medium for teaching.
    Slow, heavy and people doing that doesn't take time to edit properly, they lack of rhythm, they often do that on the fly in one shot in bad condition!

    He could have done this presentation with slides (html5 or PDF ), it would have taken more time, i agree, but the material will touch more people, can be used offline or printed, and you can read it at your own rhythm.

    In fact, a good video tut shouldn't be done on the fly, it should you some nice features "chapters, annotations," and should be available offline quite easily, etc...
    If you just don't have time to do a second shot, please, don't do any video.
