Well, once again I have stayed up really late. Last night I didn’t even go to sleep. I stayed up, recorded a video tutorial, got it uploading, and then went to church in the morning. I nodded out a few times during the sermon, and when I got home and had eaten my lunch, I took a LOOOONG nap. Now I’m doing it again – except this time I plan on going to sleep eventually.
Anyway, enough with my fake-insomnia. Time for my first and second video tutorials for Blender 2.5 Alpha 2! W00t! I recorded another tutorial tonight and so here it is!
Here is the second tutorial first. I made this video to streamline the concept being taught.
And my very first video tutorial! I made this in hopes of enlightening my viewers on the use of indirect lighting, but ended up teaching how to setup a whole scene with mesh lights and a simple node setup. Anyhow, it’s good too, so enjoy!
God bless and have wonderful sleep! I mean, a wonderful day!
I have my music theory homework done, but I really need to practice my voice. I am so unprepared for my lesson this Wednesday – oh wait, I may go to Cleveland over that time! Sweet! Anyhow, as you can tell, I’m quite zany at this hour of the night and I believe it’s time I took a bow and chortled my way to sleep.
I often find myself stumped by the simplest of things. But luckily, I have friends.
The most recent example of a friend pulling me up out of the ditch of reckless frustration is this: I’ve been working on a project for Kurv Studios, but I couldn’t figure out how to UV map an image onto my character’s shoe. Well, David Ward begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting came to my rescue by recording a little video tutorial for me, showing me how to add a decal to my mesh with UV mapping in Blender 2.51.
So here it is:
So I’d like to pass on a big “Thanks!” to David Ward for helping me out again. My pre-visualization project is almost ready to be recorded into video tutorials, so you’ll be hearing more about it in the days to come!
As for daily news? I practiced driving for about an hour, and I was fitted for a tux for my brother’s upcoming wedding this March. And oh, that reminds me – I need to practice my duet for the ceremony!
