Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Beim Durcharbeiten dieses Buches erhält man einen tiefen Einblick in die Funktionsweise von Blender 3D. Vorausgesetzt, man hat schon einige Kenntnisse im Vorfeld gesammelt. Damit man die sich ausgedachten Animationen und Szenen auch wirklich gut umsetzten kann, ist ebenfalls die Programmiersprache Python notwendig. Das Buch gibt einen allgemeinen Einstieg in die Sprache. Zum Verständnis der damit folgenden Beispiele und Kapitel muss man sich allerdings mit Python gründlich auseinander setzen. Das Buch ist mit erfrischender Sprache geschrieben und zeigt, dass der Autor sein Handwerk versteht. Die Kapitel sind logisch aufgebaut. Nur zu empfehlen..!

Gut aufgemacht, nur leider ist das Buch nicht auf dem aktuellen Stand, somit ist das Werk nur bis zur Bblender Version 2.4 geschrieben worden.

You need this book. Definitely. 18. Juli 2008
Von Renato Perini - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I ordered this book without much hesitation, once I discovered Tony was writing it. Having read his past book "Introducing Character Animation with Blender", I ordered this one without thinking twice. Now that this book is in my hands, I can't regret for my choice. The overall quality of the publication is impressive. Not only for the contents but also for the technical production: fine paper with color quality images. It's not common these days. The book is composed of 400 pages (7 chapters) plus an appendix and they are:

Chapter 1 - Re-creating the World: An overview
This chapter describes those tools and techniques that are not well explained elsewhere by the Blender literature. It covers topics like material creation with nodes, transparency, subsurface scattering, sky maps (sphere maps and angular maps) and those tools that can be used to fake physics, when accurate simulations are not necessary at all but you still need a "quick and dirty" method to achieve an effect efficiently and with sufficient speed (an example: water simulation with surface tension displacement or cloth simulation using a displacement modifier). Obviously, these techniques are useful for everyone involved using Blender. No doubt. Much appreciated.

Chapter 2 - The Nitty-Gritty on particles.
The first thing I thought after reading this chapter was:"WOW". *ALL* the latest development on Blender particles is covered here: emitters, reactors, positioning particles on a grid, chained physics systems, various types of visualizations, force fields (harmonic, magnetic, vortex, spherical, wind, etc.)
You will be guided through the creation of a convincing fire material using clouds and stencils textures! All is explained gradually and with great style. Highly informative.

Chapter 3 - Getting flexible with Soft Bodies and Cloth.
As you can expect, all that has been developed is covered here: baking, how to animate a spring, force fields and collision, using curves with softbodies (it will teach you how to animate a chain using an empty), stress maps, how to produce a fantastic cube of gelatin using lattices, simulating clothes. It will even explain how to use the demolition plugin to produce a window breaking in a spiderweb pattern!

Chapter 4 - Hair Essentials: The Long and Short of Strand Particles.
How to produce hair, fur and grass. After covering the basics, this chapter will guide you through the creation of an hairstyle on top of a practice head. One of my preferred chapters.

Chapter 5 - Making a Splash with Fluids.
One of the most interesting part of Blender: the fluid simulator. All is covered here: domains, resolution, inflow, outflow, fluid object intersection, kinematic viscosity, obstacles (considering animation, of course).

Chapter 6 - Bullet Physics and the Blender Game Engine.
One of the less undestood parts of Blender is certainly the game engine. So I was favourably impressed when I have seen an entire chapter dedicated to it. This chapter describes all the tools needed to produce hard bodies simulations, using the game engine and the powerfullness of the Bullet Physics Library. Actors, actuators, IPO curves, rigid body simulations with IPO curves, joints, ragdolls ... This is material that will be probably new to most Blender users.

Chapter 7 - Imitation of Life: Simulating Trees and Plants.
This chapter explores a few tools that can be used for creating trees and vegetation in general, like the L-System, ngPlant and Ivy Generator.

Each chapter is independent, so you don't need to read the book from the first page, with the exception of chapter 4, who strongly depends by the two previous chapters. This book is of course not intended for beginners. This book is completely updated with the latest Blender development and it covers the actual stable release. This is the documentation Blender needs. I highly recommend this book. It is well written, well presented, well structured and, most importantly, it's definitely fun!

Not for beginners 14. März 2009
Von mark benedict - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is well written and beautifully illustrated. That high illustration quality is more important than you might think as in other Blender books the images are so poor it is hard to read the many many settings that are required to work through the tutorials.

I found this book to not be kidding that it isnt aimed at beginners (it seems there is no Blender resource aimed at a thorough understanding of the interface). It would have been nice if they had mentioned that on the front or back cover instead of page 16 in the introduction. It took me thirty minutes to decipher what was meant by "Create your first texture for your ocean surface material and map it using the Empty object". While all the tutorials seem to work, sometimes too little is mentioned about why you are doing certain things. Again, if not a Blender expert expect it to take a long time to get through each example. I suppose you will learn in the event you are successful, but I was sorely tempted to give up in certain cases.

good content but poor presentation 18. Januar 2010
Von D. Alyousef - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book does teach you how to do neat things that many Blender users overlook..

However, the explanations (if they exist) are very poorly presented.. The writer does not explain why or when to use a certain technique; it tells you to blindly follow instructions and (hopefully) figure things out on your own.. This is frustrating and demotivating. Why should I follow your instructions when I don't know what you're trying to do?

Overall, as I said, you get to learn a few neat things (the hair chapter is especially well-written), but most of the book is following instructions without getting the big picture.

The one-stop guide to all of the Blender's physical reality 28. Oktober 2008
Von H. Yamasaki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great book. The quality of the print, color illustrations (although they sometimes don't do justice to the original RGB artwork), the bundled DVD with examples and scripts... everything is top-notch.

The text is easy to understand, and illustrations give you a very clear picture of what you need to do, and where. It covers all (and I really mean all) aspects of physics simulation: materials, shaders, hair, soft bodies, cloth, water... everything. It presents everything in a well systematized way, so you can't get lost.

The only thing that bothered my a little, is that author makes references to previous chapters, so if you're jumping around the book, you may find you need to read a few chapters more than you thought you'd need. But that's okay, because anything you read in this book is good learning material.

For an aspiring Blender newbie, this book is, probably, the quickest way of getting up to speed, and even getting the hang of some pretty advanced stuff.

Particles, Soft Bodies, and Hair! 3. Juli 2008
Von John R. Nyquist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I must say, I'm biased... I started liking this book the first time I read the title! The book is very impressive, it is full-color, lots of images, and the chapters are nice and modular so you can jump to the section the topic you're interested in. Tony Mullen did a great job in making the complex straightforward. The tasks in the chapters are clearly written in step-by-step style. He gets right to the point of the chapter and has you work through the material. Another nice touch is seeing pics and blurbs on various Blender artists/developers.
