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. Oddly, this doesn't seem to work in my installation of Blender version 2.80.75. The shading Pie menu doesn't change at all, in any mode, whether the box is checked or unchecked.
    Further to this, is there any way to edit the existing pie menus? I'd love to remove LookDev from the menu completely.

  2. I don't want to sound like a dick, but Is there a point in highlighting his every single one-minute video every single day on blender's main news site? By now people will have subscribed if they are interested in his content and get notifications from youtube.
