  1. bro please tell me how can you run two blender versions at the same time?!

  2. finally, they made non rocket scientist user interface. i can not tell you how many times i learned to use blender then left it for a month and i totally forgot everything. i gave up many times, because it sucks having to learn a non intuitive user interface over and over and over.

  3. REEAAAL TIIIME REEEENNNDDDEERRIINNGG!!!!!!!!!! (yay) awesome video 😀

  4. I think you'd be pleased to know that my tech school added Blender to their 3D Animation course!I know they used to teach Maya, 3DS Max and maybe Z Brush? Not sure if anything is replaced or added on, chances are it's all still being taught!

  5. Be careful with your old projects EVERYBODY, I opened my latest project in Blender 2.8 and switched back to 2.79b and when I try to open the project in 2.79b, blender crashes! I have to start over my latest project just because I opened it in 2.8…

  6. Old version is WAY better! I'm upgrading back to 2.79b

  7. hi andrew, thanks for this vid, i was wondering if you could send/post the fireworks and sparkler blend file that you used in your 2.8beta sign. Ive been dying to make it look as good as yours but failing. thank you!

  8. Hello Guru I apologize that this is off topic, but are you familiar with rigging at all?

    I have a problem with a character model I've been trying to rig. Basically when I set automatic weights to jump start the rigging process usually a model keeps its shape fairly decently when I move the bones. But when I did with this one, the whole mesh gets wobbly, and the tail shrinks in one place and bulges in the other. Some parts have control in places no where near them, and some bones don't have any control in spots where they should.

    Basically I was wondering if you know what kind of problem this, and I'm wondering if you can fix it. The only solution I've had so far is to maticulously pain everything to have a correct selection. If you know a better solution I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks for taking time to read this.

  9. which one did you do the worm[video]

  10. which one did you do the worm[video]

  11. I updated blender and even tho its only been amonth a lot now works better but theres new stuff about camera focus that Im trying to figure out I hope they dont change it again , moving the camera away from the obj is difficult I cant get hold of it like in the last one and pointing the camera at the object is impossible , align does not do it .If you know of any up to date videos let me know

  12. Hi, could you make a tutorial about your phantastic Intro?? It would be very nice. Reiner from Germany 🙂

  13. damn i hate it…i have used Blender 2.79 for so long…this feels just really weird and off..i can't find half of the stuff and alot of the really fast and useful workflows have been sacrificed in the sake of making it easier and more accessible for new users that didn't put in the work to learn the original… not sure if this is a good direction to go towards..

  14. I used 2.79 long time ago. And I just said lol blender I will try something. I opened it and I was like. What the fuck happened. Everything is different!

  15. 우와.. 한국어 먼데 ㅋㅋ 감사합니다.

  16. Dear Blender Guru, I think I am slowly being hooked on Blender 2.8 as a means for making constructs I want to do, like ambulance wagons and Vintage Steam Trucks. I just have one teeny weeny favour to ask you (well 2 actually, hehehhe) 1, please can you show us how to (slowly cause some of us are Dense like me) import a reference image into blender from say Google image, and 2 please please do not do Time lapse videos. I find these frustrating bc you can't possibly learn anything from these, and also if the artist truly doesn't want to show us how to do something, than either show us or don't. Sorry but that is just one of my pet peeves, like people who insist on clearing their throats constantly or who say "far be it from me to…. GAGH!! You are great your videos are awesome, and once I figure out if I have enough memory in my computer (cause blender will be competing for space with daz) in my system, to incorporate blender I would like to try out your donut and coffee tutorial. Cheers for now and thank you for being such an amazing teacher. TTFN


  17. Plse mke 2d tutorial….

  18. U should replace Tom cruise for mission impossible…

  19. i donate from somalia through paypal.. thank blander team for helping us… great Respect for you gys

  20. I wanna switch back.

  21. this update is incredible.

  22. 3:00 I'm CRAZY. I switched to Space for tools as soon as I found out I could, partly because I started with modeling before animation so I don't press play often (read: at all).

  23. Wonderfully insightful vid! You dah man!

  24. I'm way too used to right click select lol I'm gonna have to change that back

  25. Now all they need to do is make it to where you can move with WASD like you can in Unreal instead of having to spin around with Shift and Middle Mouse Button… Then Blender will be godking

  26. How can i create a hyperlink or action button in blender?

  27. I downloaded 2.8 onto Mac and I dont get all the icons on the collections part on the top right. Only the eye icon is showing. I want to lock some objects, but i cant see the other icons, the arrow, TV screen, camera etc. How can I enable them?
