TechCamp 2016! This summer we are making two films, one with the Techventures during the first week (July 18-22) and one with the Techsplorers the second week (July 25-29).
This page will connect you to many of the basic resources we will use - but please check back periodically to keep up with our progress.

This summer (2016), the current version is 2.77a - but please note that Blender is updated frequently, so it is a good idea to get the latest version. The interface and functions can change with upgrades, so always check for information about what's new about a new version. De[end

The Cookie Flex Rig was created by Nathan Vegdahl, Beorn Leonard, and Jonathan Williamson, based on an initial design by David Revoy. The rig is designed for maximum flexibility, with numerous controls for body shape, facial features and a small library of clothing and hairstyles. It's intended to provide a great resource for learning and testing character animation in Blender.
