Learn Blender scripting [$]


TheDuckCow writes:

Hi, my name is Patrick W. Crawford (also known as TheDuckCow). As the developer behind addons like Pro Lighting Studio and MCprep, I'm here to teach you about the power of scripting in Blender. Whether you're an artist or a developer, learning how to use Python in Blender is an easy way to expand its capabilities. With Python, you can automate tasks that are time-consuming, or even impossible to do by hand. You can customize the interface to complement your workflow, and you can even distribute and sell your polished addons.

I have seen many artists use Blender scripting as a stepping stone to building up a highly attractive, technical skill set, that not only helps make using Blender faster, but can also be a personal selling point on its own. Alright, let's get Blending!
