Y'know, from my experiance, people who love and use Blender don't seem to use YouTube that much, but Vimeo instead. So I made a Vimeo account.

Hey, remember hen I gave you a sneak peek of my animation, PotES on the town? Well, I've kind of given up on this, but here's a render from it using my first mirror effect:

Like it?

P.S. PotES stands for Penguins of the Empire State.

I just figured out how to download YouTube videos onto my iPod using KeepVid.com http://keepvid.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DbsGEWHNJ3s8, and as we speak I'm downloading Elephants Dream! It wouldn't let me get Sintel, though, so I don't know if I can get E D or Big Buck Bunny.

How to Make & Edit Text in Blender

Hello everyone. This is Natron1, with my second, or maybe fifth, tutorial. My first one had four parts and was about programing a game in Blender.

1.Open up Blender 2.5 Beta 4, a.k.a. Blender 2.54. Delete the default cube. Go to the Add menu (Shift-A) and click on "Text." On the left-hand side of the screen, click on "Align to view." That'll make the text face you.

2.As you can see, the text says only "Text." We'll fix that later. First, go to the Text Panel in the list of properties on the right side of the screen. Its icon is the letter "F." Go down on the Text Menu and you'll see the word "Geometry." Under it, you'll see three sliders. if you increase the top, left-hand slider, your text will become a jumbled mass of shapes. If you decrease the slider, your text will become a negative jumbled mass of shapes and look like a Picasso.

3.Undo your last move so that your text looks normal. Then increase the slider next to the one you previously used. Your text will, once again, become a jumbled mass of shapes. But this time it's organized.

4.Undo your last move and focus your attention to the top, left-hand slider. This is, by far, the coolest. If you increase it, your text will be scaled on the Y axis, or whichever one it's facing.

5.Here comes the cool part. Tab to Edit Mode. A cursor will appear at the end of your text. You can now Backspace or Delete the word, and write whatever you want to write!

This concludes my second tutorial. See you later!

A review of computer programs

My first real-favorite computer program: MILSBERRY. It was okay, for a bad-grade, boring MMOG, but the advertising! Whew! http://www.millsberry.com/

The next was Lego.com. I was obsessed with Legos, and I still like them.http://www.lego.com/en-us/Default.aspx

Teh next was kind of an upgrade from MILSBERRY. It was Club Penguin, which my sister finally convinced me I was too old for. http://play.clubpenguin.com/

Then there was Ninja Turtles.com. I really liked the TMNT TV show and the comic books. http://www.ninjaturtles.com/

Then, of course, Anime Studio Debut. This is a 2-D animating software that my grandfather gave me. It's okay, but not as good as...

Blender! When my dad took me to see a professional animator, he reccommended that I start my career on Blender. At teh time, I was like, "Who's gonna name their program Blender?" Of course, I got to love it. http://www.blender.org/

Here we must mention Pencil, another great animating software that you can download from teh internet at http://sourceforge.net/projects/pencil-planner/files/Pencil/pencil-0.4.4b-win.zip

Then comes the last program I have found so far: GameMaker. It's seriously awesome. It's like Blender Game Engine, but it's, like, Mario-style!http://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker/
