I’m currently doing the complete blender course. I’m presently at the spitfire modeling part. I’m enjoying the course, but something bothers me.
Grant continuously dissuades us from using the boolean tools, saying it’ll cause complicated results for beginners. I understand it’s better for us to learn the tools than do cutouts with booleans. However, as someone who worked with vectors and Illustrator’s boolean tools, I feel it’ll help us to learn it than push it aside.
I have a cousin with no graphic design skills going into a blender with YouTube tutorials last month. He is already creating amazing models quite above my level because he’s working on a higher level using modifiers and booleans to speed up the workflow while I’m working with a low-level tedious workflow.
What’s worse is Grant occasionally teases us. For example, showing the Boolean addon activated while showing us the auto-mirror addon and saying he has it active but won’t use it in the course.
I’ll be lying if I said I wasn’t annoyed. Why not just spend 5 mins introducing the tool for those that want to use it?
I purchased all the blender courses from GDTV in a mental fog of spontaneity. So, to get the most value, I’m avoiding YouTube tutorials.
Are booleans, array modifiers, etc., ever used in any GDTV blender course?
