Hi, my name is Jan and I help companies by creating short video's for their websites. I also do freelance 3D work and post daily one-minute tutorials for Blender users.


  1. Yor timelapsed tips is almost useless, Please make your video atleast 3.5mins long. I SCREWED my fingers and eyes trying to to copy what you did and decided to ignore furture posts. !!

  2. Hey, Admin of BlenderNation (Bart), or somebody similar, I need you attention!

    Please STOP flooding the newsletter on BlenderNation with these useless endless "tips", its just spam and it's really annoying.

    I, as many other, visit BlenderNation for REAL Blender news and tutorials, not these 2minutes flood junk.

    I hope you understand me! Thanks!

    • Hi Dave,

      My name is Jan, I'm the author of these daily tips.
      I'm sorry to hear that you are annoyed by them. I do hope they help people, and fortunately I usually get a lot of positive comments in general. I spend about 1 or 2 hours every day making them. My sole purpose is to help people and to offer an alternative to the typical longer tutorials. It's certainly not intended to be spam or junk, as you call it.
      I hope you'll have a nice day, despite being annoyed by my tips.

        Don't worry bro. Not everyone dislikes them and since your intentions are well placed, it will eventually by Almighty's Will, turn out good. I'm kinda okay with it personally speaking.

        Getting the speed of explanation right, is an art in itself. You have to understand the right balance of it helps others and yourself to save time & energy. I do also think, that the play speed of the screw video was on the 'too fast' side.

        Look at how Andrew Price does it at Blender Guru.

        Hi Jan, I really appreciate these tips. I'm pretty new at Blender (I've been using it very occasionaly for the last couple of years) and I find your format to be quite refreshing actually. They're like little pointers of what can be done in ways that I would've never considered without seeing them. It's clear that you put a lot of time and effort in them, so please keep up the good work. It's truly appreciated.

      • Hey,

        I like them too, it's a nice way to learn new tricks and optimize my own workflow...
        Sometimes it's really handy if you try to do something and stuble acrooss a tip that exactly solves the current problem ;-)
