Looks like my B.C. sub just paid for itself. Thanks for making this, Simon!

Just brilliant, well organized and necessary. Thanks for this!
I'm sure i'll be playing with materials soon.

That box displaying the numbers in the Values scene is blowing my mind!
26th July 2020 - 09:17
How can i show the values at the bottom of the render window? (i'm using blender 2.83LTS and it doesn't show them by default. Thankx and btw this course is super interesting

*@Pierpaolo Andraghetti* The values only show up, when you click on the image. The mouse button depends on what you use for selection. With leftclick-select you use the right mouse button and vice versa

Hi Simon, was wondering why when the vector is going to -z direction it turns to dark green, when going to -x turning to dark blue and also when going to -y it turns to dark purple?

*@Victor Bonar Panggabean* I'm not entirely sure, I understand what you mean. On its own, negative RGB values don't affect the other color channels.
If you mean the effect, that negative color values for the base color of the Principled BSDF shader affect the color, that you see, that is exclusively due to the specular part of the shader. The negative components effectively subtract from the reflection, changing its color.
That works in the same way as you can have negative emission as absorption with lamps or emission shaders.

*@Simon Thommes* Hi Simon, sorry for my english. I mean in the blendfile that you provide for us. In the vectors scene, if i move the empty (target) to the +z direction then the arrow turns blue. But when i move the empty to the -z direction why is the arrow turns green? Just curious
4th September 2020 - 18:52
*@Victor Bonar Panggabean* Ah, I see. Thanks for pointing this out!
The reason for this effect is the same I described in my earlier comment, I did not think of it when creating the file. I updated the file. Now the behavior is accurate.

*@Simon Thommes* Thank you Simon, will try explore the file again. Anyway i think you're the only instructor in this blender cloud who replies.. Haha.. Thanks alot

*@Victor Bonar Panggabean* That hasn't been my experience. To name one example, Julien K. responded to a question I had recently within a day or so. And my only other attempt at asking a question was also answered. Sounds like you haven't been as lucky. Still, painting everyone with one brush may not be so fair.

I think the problem you are experiencing might be on the courses that are old training DVDs that are not uploaded by the instructors themselves, but as an archive by one of our maintainers. So those instructors don't see your comments unfortunately.
But on the courses by those of us working at the Blender Studio currently we all respond regularly as far as I know.
I know that, as an example, Julien Kaspar replies to all comments in short time.
7th September 2020 - 12:07
*@Simon Thommes* Yes you're right. Ah, so the old training courses was not uploaded by the instructors themselves.
Wow, that's awesome so now there's a new division developing the blender training material?
Anyway, if i can make a suggestion, it will be much helpful for the students that don't speak english well (like me) if there is a feature that can upload picture in this Q & A section. So instead explaining what is happening in my screen, i can just screenshot and send it here so the instructor will easily understand the problem and therefore will be able to help the students easily.

*@victor p* Yes, as far as I know that feature will be supported in the future. Right now you can also do it, but you have to first upload the image and then link to it in the comment.
7th September 2020 - 12:37
*@Simon Thommes* aha..yes you are right.

I enabled the add on Node Wrangler. But not getting the “Viewer” Node. A forum suggested Ctrl + shift + LMB / Command + shift + LMB which did not help either. I’m using 2.83. Anything i’m missing?

*@srkmail* That is exactly the shortcut that should work, which I am using as well. Are you sure that the addon is enabled correctly? You should save your preferences after enabling so Blender remembers your settings.
Do you see the Node Wrangler settings in the right property tab of your shader editor window? (shows up when pressing 'N')

*@Simon Thommes* Thanks a lot Simon. It is working after restart. Thanks for this wonderful tutorial.
