  1. 1. The User Interface 3D Animation – Blender J Le Rossignol
  2. 2. Basic Screen Layout http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Interface
  3. 3. Editor Types Python Console File Browser Info User Preferences Outliner Properties Logic Editor Node Editor Text Editor Movie Clip Editor Blender has many editors Each allows the access and manipulation of the data The five highlighted to the right appear on the default screen
  4. 4. Screen Layouts All these are designed to make it easier to do a particular task 3D View Full, Animation, Compositing, Game Logic, Motion Tracking, Scripting, UV Editing, Video Editing Default *** This is the one we’ll use most of the time NOTE: if the entire screen layout changes
  5. 5. Adjusting the User Interface File -> User Preferences... http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Preferences
  6. 6. Changing the settings lOn the Interface Tab, check lZoom To Mouse Position lRotate Around Selection lThen click Save as Default
  7. 7. For Notebooks Blender users the Number pad constantly, and since most Laptops, Notebooks do not have one. It will need to be Emulate On the Input Tab Check Emulate Numpad This will use the number keys instead of the Numpad
  8. 8. Fixing the User Interface What if the entire layout changes lIt's likely that you've changes screen layout If everything disappears lTry <shift> + c to center the 3D view lTry <alt> + h to unhide everything What is it all goes wrong? lFile -> Load Factory Settings lThe only hassle with this is that you lose everything.
