Are there any alternatives to his tutorials for learning blender? I cannot sit through his tutorials they feel very boring and I seem to loose interest really quickly. Do you anons know of anythings I could use to learn blender?
>>
>>675640
please before you call me a blendlet i cannot install Autodesk because Im on linux and am too retarded to figure out how to extract an rpm file
>>
ffs if you find AP's tutorials boring then maybe you should lay off the energy drinks.

Because the average tutorial, is a lot slower

Maybve you're more of a "learn by actually doing the thing you want to do" kind of guy

so find something basic that you actually want to do, then do it
>>
>>675642
I'm guessing you can't figure out how to make a Windows partition or use a virtual machine either. Or the questions thread. But yeah, like >>675653 says just start a random project and model a house or some shit then Google every time you have a "how do I ____" question. After that you can go back to tutorials, smugly skip through all the parts you already know and extract one or two pieces of new information.

You do well in avoiding Price, he's a bad artist, a mediocre teacher, and gives you information at a snail's pace. Look into CGCookie learning paths, some are free on YouTube, others are paid on the CGCookie site, and even some of the latter are heavily discounted on the usual sites.

But you'd do even better if you were to avoid blundering into Blender, and chose to go with a good package instead -- 3ds Max, Maya, Houdini, MODO..., you have plenty to chose among, depending on your interests.

Just install wine's 64 bit version and run it with that. I've managed to run most "windows only" programs without any problems using wine. They usually only have issues when they try to do something stupid anyways; such as always on authentication or, in the case of DAZ 3D, setting up a server daemon to serve assets to itself (which is kind of a retarded way of going about things since selecting assets from a OS's file explorer isn't any harder then using their inbuilt asset explorer).

Partitioning is overkill most of the time.

Yeah, guess what Autodesk does.

There is an option to speed up the videos.

Are you retarded? There is a native build of Maya for Linux.

Stay poor, pay piggy.

there's the oficial ones, but the Blender Fundation doesn't know how to promote them. They should put a link that inside the splash screen just like Unity or Unreal.

https://cloud.blender.org/p/blender-fundamentals/5b27cd055eab7f00119b6fea

they are working in the 2.8 series. i suppose for the 2.81 release

Maya is free. The "Student Version" is literally just free copies of Maya for anyone who wants one. There are no meaningful restrictions on it.
>>
>>675692
>free alternatives
I'm not aware of any, but if you know of some please tell me, I'd love to switch!
>>
>>675640
Just turn up the speed to x1.5 or x2, you fagget.
>>
>>675640
>Literally "How to make a piece of junk in blender"
lol. He is overrated as fuck. just read the documentation, is what he does to make doughnuts and junk tutorials.
>>
>>675661
>gives you information at a snail's pace

I can't stress this enough. I don't understand why people recommend his doughnut tutorial so much for beginners. It makes Blender look more complex than it actually is. And look, I don't have a short attention span but I've found tutorials that are more straight forward and gives you the same amount of info in 4th of the time. His facecam is what enfuriates me the most however, why the fuck you'd need one for a tutorial? I believe people only recommend his tutorials to discourage beginners.

I wish we can go back to html tutorials with pictures and text. Videos are never, ever good.

arrimus is a saint for giving us so much hard surface material, bless him
>>
>>676644

Honestly even if you're a blender user, watch arrimus 3D, his modelling techniques are great.
>>
>>676686
this actually, techniques are great because they are software independent
>>
>>675640
"Blenderguru" is a fucking retard, a slow teacher and a shit artist.

Go through this short series to learn how to operate Blender, then look up tutorials on subsurf modeling, sculpting, rendering, etc. later:

His shit's really helpful, but who the hell is he? Can't find a portfolio or anything like that.
>>
>>677067
>but who the hell is he?
Does it matter? He's not a blendlet, and that's all you need to know.
>>
>>675640
BornCG has a good tutorial series, but it isn't for the newest version:

you can't run discrete GPUs in a VM without doing some funky PCI pass-through shit that requires certain hardware, a second GPU (or other, more specific intel motherboards), and a week of pulling your hair out learning exactly what the fuck it is you're doing, JSYK
>>
>>675642
You can install Maya on Linux granted you're not a Debian fag but use a Red Hat distribution instead.
>>
>>680225
Forgot the link.
