Last week-end I travelled to Toulouse (in France), to make a workshop about crashing a small spaceship on the ground. The original model can be downloaded on BlenderSwap.

The recording is not a professionnal one, but I think it can be interesting for some people. Thanks to Toulibre (a wonderfull French association who promote FLOSS) who have organized this workshop !

Hope you like it !

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. Yeah... I find it kinda weird that a french video series was posted on an english speaking web site... but I am sure someone will find it useful...

  2. It wasn't initially done to be posted on english speaking web site, sorry. Dj3dim made those videos and posted them on a slow bandwidths server so I've upload them to youtube for easy access, then CoyHot posted his blend on blenderswap and linked the videos.
    Now, if the community make a BIG work, we (the community) can do the subtitles.

      Hi e5dy! Thanks for videos!
      I'm not clear about 1st PSystem of the space ship though... Is it starts at the moment of the ground's contact? How it gets the directions for big pieces?

  3. even though I'm not a french speaker it was interesting to follow along with what Coyhot was doing.. I found some real hidden Gems in it that I haven't seen posted in any english tutorials.

    thanks for posting it

  4. Can someone please translate it ? it looks interesting. Just that i'm not able to make out what they are saying when they keep tumbling the view.

  5. Merci François, j'aime beaucoup tes présentations sur Blender, très interressantes et toujours pleines d'humour, c'est vraiment sympa de partager ton savoir avec nous, surtout que tu t'y connais bien !
