Our first Blender reference guide chapter has just been put online. Think of it as a mash-up between a quick reference guide and a video tutorial. We will cover off the most commonly performed actions in Blender with instructions on how to perform them via hotkey or using the mouse, as well as an accompanying image showing the action in, um… action. We hope to bridge the gap between regular written instruction and video tutorial. So for those that like moving at their own pace like you would with a written page, but with the clarity of video, hopefully this guide is perfect for you.
Obviously if you’ve been using Blender for a while, this will be of very little use to you, but if you are just starting out, I hope you find it helpful. If you have not, hopefully these will be of use. Here for example, is the graphic illustrating the (B)order selection tool. Click any image for a more detailed version.
We have many other pages in the work, the next one specifically covers the editing process, but any and all suggestions are welcome! Feel we’ve glossed over an important command in a certain category, let us know!
Here is the first release though, covering selection and camera manipulation. Consider everything to be a WIP, subject to multiple changes. There are also some tutorials in the works, and they are going to assume you are familiar with everything in the guide. As we bring more sections online, we will be improving the navigation of course.
