That's huge news and really secures / accelerates Blender development for the foreseeable future.

I downloaded it last night and plan to work through the intro tutorials in my free time over the next couple of weeks. It's a bit daunting (compared to SU), but the new interface is much cleaner and EEVEE looks incredible. Once I'm comfortable at a basic level, I'm going to try out Chipp's workflow: modeling in SU / rendering in Blender.

I'm excited to explore Blender: should be worth the effort of scaling the learning curve — and a good backstop against an unknown SU future.

One of the great things about Blender 2.8 is it's menu system is SO MUCH BETTER! You can now find just about anything your looking for in the menus, and see the shortcut keys too. I created this video below to help people setup Blender 2.8 for a paid course, but you're welcome to review it.

I am SO looking forward to actually having a real person teach the course instead of trying to learn (yet another) modelling/rendering/animation program on my own. I always feel I've figured out just enough to get going but miss alot of the good stuff too.


Where are you that you have a Education Center that offers such a course. Thats awesome. I sure wish there was something like that around where I'm at. Just doesn't ever seem to work that way.

LOL I was surprised to see it listed too in this Fall's Continuing Education book. They've had introductory ACAD for quite a long time and I think I saw Sketchup once. :shock: Might have been dreaming that one though. It's being offered in 2 locations- Eastside and Westside of the city in Toronto. The cost is CAD$180.
I tried to learn Blender myself many years ago but couldn't figure it out so I hope with the new version it will make a lot more sense and be a good basis for understanding Chip's tutorials.

Thanks for additional resources, SJS66 and M.Pilou
Classes start this Saturday and I think the 18 seats were filled in one or two days. There is a waiting list.
