Some more FREE goodies…

Hi Everyone,
It’s been a while since my last posting.
Below are some goodies I hope you’ll enjoy!
First up, BZoo, http://www.bzooworld.org/ a game engine suite for Blender and another free game development tool – Unity 3D.
Plus, if you want to learn to use Unity 3D, here’s the link: http://unity3d.com/
Next up, more tools for Blender.
If you’re using Blender 2.5 and would like to have the python scripts for creating lens flares, go to the BlenderTime site: http://www.blendertime.com/tag/lens-flares-library/

If you want to create a 3D graphic in Blender and want greater flexibility in painting and manipulating your work in Photoshop, check out this YouTube video – WARNING: It’s in German and you’ll need Photoshop CS3 Extended to do your work in – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxCLx1ljKgo

Need some inspiration, host your Blender videos or get some additional training, then take a look at Blender Videos: http://www.blendervideos.com/
If you’re looking for more textures and freebies, here are some site to help you to build your library of resources:
3D Total’s Free Textures – http://freetextures.3dtotal.com/
Media Militia – http://www.blendervideos.com/
WireCase – http://www.wirecase.com/Gallery-Free-3D-Models_s-2_v-20-1_f-fc-0-321_f-fpx-_f-fpn-_f-oid-.html
Need to build up your sound effects library? Try FlashKithttp://www.flashkit.com/
Yo will have the options to a) try the effect before you begin the download; b) decide on whether to download a WAV or MP3.

Some notes on FlashKit:
Don’t let the name and nature of the site fool you. Once you download these files, you can use them over and over again in a multitude of media. Also, although MP3’s are faster to download, these files are heavily compressed. Best practice in multimedia design is to use a WAV file, since it is full of harmonics and range (and it can be in stereo), then re-compress it when you render out your projects.

If you are interested in creating your own city, then this free downloadable script is for you.
The Suicidator City Generator is available from this site:

Here is what your city could look like:

This is how-to install the script and run it in Blender:
Video instructions on how-to work with the script – Note: NO AUDIO – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzRWpkTR8gU&feature=channel
Well that’s all I got for this round!
Til next time.
