Welcome to JMT's web
Below are some links to work I'm doing. I'm doing an
independant study with Professor Tim Hickey this semester. My project
involves learning how to use Blender, and developing introductory
tutorials for that program.
What is Blender? Blender is an
open source 3D image and
animation design tool, similar to the Maya program, which runs on a
Python language platform. Downloading Blender is easy, because it takes
up so little space. The downside is that there aren't any walk-through
tutorials included, like you might find with Flash or Maya, so a
first-time user will find it difficult to figure out what to do or
where to start.
I myself have never used the program
semester, and as a first time user, I'm logging my experiences and
findings to eventually be able to compose a comprehensive step-by-step
Start-Up Tutorial for any first time users like me. There are many
tutorials on the Blender
Web Page, but most of
them assume the user has experience
with the program, and they tell you to do steps you might not know how
to do. My hope is to clear that up.
Below are the links to my syllabus for
of the semester, and a list of the tutorials I'm writing and reviewing.
will change as my work progresses.
