"Animation for the Appliance Challenged" is presented as a litmus for the person who 'wants to test the water' in Animation, 3D, and 'cool' geometry using Blender.

Okay, the geometry part is an option and mentioned because I was impressed by the struggle of 15th century European artists who found "a way of evoking three-dimensional space and depicting solid form in a way that was systematic and consistent" (Alan Watt and Mark Watt, 1992, p.11).

These pages were initiated on my arrival at page 63 of the Blender V1.5 Manual. I spent about a month working on the first 61 pages and practiced the tutorials until I could do them from memory.

I would like to publicly thank Ton Roosendaal for his free source contribution. - Curtis ~@~

This Out-Of-Date page (above) exists because it reminds me of fun I had learning how to use Blender and excellent folks who participated.

I still do animation and offer this old advise for anyone pursuing a career in Animation, "Be careful what you wish for, It might become true." (-;

Long before Blender I was involved with progressive activism. I left the Blender community to eliminate the risk of 'my politics' leaking into 'where it did not belong', which usually leads to some form of divide and conquer.

Nothing has changed during the past 10 years and I am reaching my 'statistical end' of caring.
