In this short video I'm showing you a way to change views in Blender 2.8 lightning fast (e.g. top, side, front etc...) without having to let go off your mouse or lifting your left hand from your keyboard where it usually sits for the keys involved in the main navigation.

About Author

My name is Marco Neumann - I'm also known as "Marcotronic" on several internet forums & social media sites. I'm a German multimedia artist, born 1971. Why "multimedia" you may ask. Well, just because I'm really doing a lot of different stuff: I began drawing as a child (as probably everybody did but my passion for drawing and painting still exists today), I started with photography with the age of 8 and got my first computer with the age of 11 (the good old "Commodore VIC 20" :) ) - that's when I learned programming in BASIC (I'm still a software developer today). With the age of 15 I got my first electric guitar and played in several bands. Later, with the age of 19 I started singing in different bands and got some professional voice coaching (that's probably one of the reasons a lot of people seem to like my "storyteller" voice which comes in handy when doing video tutorials). In the mid-nineties I began composing & producing music on the PC which I'm still doing today (typical trailer, video game & film music) This was also about the time I started with computer graphics (started with Adobe Photoshop and I've been using it almost daily since then (in 2005 I produced some commercial Photoshop Training DVDs for a German Company named "Data Becker" which unfortunately doesn't exist anymore). About 19 years ago I got infected with 3D software and started with Cinema4D. Later I also used Maya, Modo, Mudbox, ZBrush & Topogun and recently started using a bit of Houdini. A few years ago I got into contact with Blender, the free open source 3D software and I was amazed by the quality and the whole feature set that is available for free. I began concentrating on Blender only and decided to dedicate most of my time to it. This and my passion for teaching (I also have a didactic background) & doing video tutorials are the reasons for Blender tutorials.
