1st Render in Blender (lol)

Hello World, after 2 days of starting the Blender course with ZERO experience I have completed lesson 13. Rendering Out Your Scene and here are the 2 renders. One in Eevee mode and the other in Cycles. Cycles mode took a very long time, my pc is 10 years old with an 8 core AMD FX 8150 and GE Force 1030. not sure how much faster a newer machine would crunch the numbers but it took about 8 minutes to render out the cycle mode. Anyways, loving the course and was able to get this far and hope to make it to the finish line.!




I found it quite difficult to scroll around and keep the design in the middle of the screen, being more of a Photoshop guy I kept hitting the spacebar a thousand times to try and nudge the screen.

if you feel like digging into it, somewhere on the “Keymap” tab of the preferences you can change the way that works.

That’d be great if the spacebar could be reprogrammed. In the meanwhile I read up and found out how to emulate the 3 button mouse and get the Alt key in the mix.

Alt + Shift allows me to nudge around the viewport well enough, if there is a better way that would be awesome as well.

I’m guessing that since you don’t have a mouse you probably don’t have a numpad either. In that case I highly recomend turning on numpad emulation as well since that’s where the short cuts for moving your screen are located.

HI, oh no I have a mouse but don’t like using the mouse wheel if I don’t have to. I am using a desktop pc, not a laptop. :slight_smile:
Appreciate your insight.
