Coming from Kino, Blender's "Video Sequence Editor" is a huge step up. Most people don't think of Blender when considering video editing tools, but in fact, Blender contains a very good one. This is not a separate application but an editing mode within the Blender application. It can work directly with animated scenes created within Blender or with video footage from other sources.
Hello folks I hope someone here can help me. I have been using Linux Mint for a little over 2 years now and have gotten used to it. However because of some kernel and compatibility problems I had to install Xubuntu 11.10.
Now my problem is that I need to install blender 2.63a which is the latest. I have downloaded it and unpacked it to my home folder as I have always done in Mint.
We have been covering different aspects of Blender extensively during the past few weeks. We even featured one of the best collection of Blender made movies and animations few days ago. Now it's time for some real learning. Here is an incredible collection of 12 hand picked Blender tutorials every Blender and animation enthusiast should know of.
If blender switched to git, would it be plausible to compare a random git program's PKGBUILD with blender-svn's PKGBUILD and essentially create blender-git (That would basically download from git and then use the same process to install)?Edit: I simply copied the AUR PKGBUILD for blender-git and it is currently downloading. I will report if it compiles once it finishes downloading.
I have been used to downloading the latest Blender from blender.org, and just extracting to my home folder and running the blender executable from there. After each kernel upgrade you need to reinstall the nvidia driver (I use sgfxi for that), then do nvidia-xconfig, and off I go with GPU rendering capability.
