After almost 6 years of writing and polishing, I finally released my much loved Blender baby last week at the Blender conference 2018 into the world - the most up-to date, most comprehensive, in-depth and biggest Blender handbook ever: 17 chapters, 917 pages, over 1200 illustrations and 250 blend files will give you all the information you need to understand every bit of Blender 2.79b.
Written from a developer who knows Blender's & its tools' inner workings and having more than 15 years of professional Blender experience in my design studio, this eBook will build up a super strong foundation for your own Blender explorations, help you solve all problems that Blender throws at you and will give you super comprehensive knowledge of every area in Blender. On top, I'll show you many hidden gems which were - until now - barely documented or not documented at all.
We're having an in-depth look at:
- Blenders UI, Workflow Concepts & Data Blocks,
- All Modifiers
- Shading & Texturing
- Compositing & Post-Production
- Motion Tracking
- Video Sequence Editor
- Python Scripting
- Grease Pencil
and last but not least an appendix chapter where we look at the amazing things that Blender 2.8 will bring us - please have a look at my website to see why Blender 2.8 is not a primary target in this book and why the BGE was excluded from it.
I've put this enormous effort into this book because Blender has given me so much joy, success and friends - all I hope for is that will enable you make Blender your very own amazing tool, will enable you to help yourself because you understand each tool and that it will become your everyday companion on your very own beautiful Blender voyage.
Happy blending & Have fun!
