Tutorials Blender (english)

Here are the free online tutorials in english about Blender, but before submitting tutorials and guides, let"s talk a bit about this fantastic program.
Blender is now considered one of the best 3D modeling software, like 3D Studio Max, Maya and Cinema 4D. Born as an internal application in the Dutch animation studio NeoGeo, it was later transformed into an open source software by Ton Roosendaal, its programmer, who later established the Blender Foundation, which still promotes the development and spread of this software.
Blender does not include only the 3D modeling, but also functions for the sculpting, UV mapping, rigging, animation, rendering and compositing, which improves images produced with post-production actions.
Blender also includes features that allow special effects to be realized, through particle management and non linear simulations (also through rigid body and softbody management).
Also important is the management of videos by Blender and through its Video Sequence editor, tracking, masks etc. is able to provide a truly professional service.
But that"s not all, as it also includes the Grease Pencil tool that lets you to draw drawings and cartoons, and the Blender Game Engine, which allows you to create games and virtual environments that can be visited.

In this section there are free online tutorials in english about Blender (which will be added from time to time), guides on some aspects of the program, as well as tutorials that illustrate how to create vehicles, characters, intro, animations, buildings (archiviz) and more.
