When you run Blender for the first time. But later you can work with closed eyes.
That's why I love how shortcut-oriented it is.
I could use the Japanese version perfectly fine if I had to.
Is it easier to produce Cambodian basket-weaving cartoons when you set Blender to Chinese?
Personally I make squinty eyes when I use Blender now.
>he's confusing function names with interfaces
The word Blender leave a bad taste in my mouth, because we have a case of "that guy" in college class who constantly starts arguments about Blender vs other 3D programs, when nobody gives a shit, and it's not the program we're learning in the first place.
pretty much every fucking software has "that guy".
try starting a blender thread and see for yourself.
This. Best thing is find what you like, fuck what others think, and keep your opinions on it to yourself unless asked. The world is chock full of fanboys.
Tell him if he really wants to champion Blender, he should learn everything he can from the class and the 3D package(s) you guys are using, find the limitations in Blender (of which there are many) and write add-ons or get add-on authors to write add-ons for that shit.
Then tell him he's being a counter productive jerk, not because it's Blender but because it's not what you guys are working, and people labeled "jerks" don't get hired in the world of creative collaborative enterprises.
Bro, the guy is a blender fanboy. Do you actually think a job is high on his list of priorities?
