  • The main point is to create a question that other users will see funny.

  • The winner will be chosen and his/her/its entry will be accepted. The link to that entry will be placed in the space below, along with the entries that almost won.

  • The winner will be chosen on October 27th. Other entries are welcome after that, but the winners entree will stay accepted (even if new entries gain more upvotes).

How to make blender darken, cause its all whited out and I can't do anything with it after I moved the bones on my character

OK, so I'm making a minecraft animation, and I have a rig with every block! And so I create a world with it (It took me about a month) but I finally had copied enough blocks to create a world. Its not infinite, unfortunately, but It goes as far as you can see in every direction. Trees, mountains, caves, ect. But now I imported a player, and when I tried to move his hand, the the whole tab whited out, and now I can't do anything! I'm sure there's some setting somewhere that makes it do that when you try and move the bones on a character, but I don't know what one it might be. Is it in the settings? What buttons should I push?

UPDATE Never mind guys I came back from lunch and it wasn't whited out anymore! Thanks for helping!

Another Update Ignore that first update! I tried to move the character again and it did the same thing! Help!

Why do my quads have only four vertices?

This is very Irritating guys, not funny like the rest of the questions on your blue section, I don't want to work with n-gons! I've searched all over the internet but found nothing. I'm not a noob! I've been using Aztek-3d and StudioMinus for many years and never had any issues with multi-vertex quads and tris or making monogons with multiple edges. Even when I import my old models from Sketchy plus they don't work in blender no more. Why does blender insist on limiting triangles to three vertices and quads to only four? I thought this was free software, so I'd be free to have the geometry I want with no restrictions. In Cinema5D I've always created planes, spheres and rhinos with just one or two vertices and perfect UVs every time with no fuss. Am I missing something?

$\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I do not seem to have the problem you are describing. One quad with 32 vertices. Maybe you should report this bug to autodesk. $\endgroup$ – David Oct 12 '15 at 23:31

    $\begingroup$ NO! that's not it: I need my squares to be rounded but remain straight! Can't blender deal with that like all of the other programs? This is so frustrating!!!!!!!!! $\endgroup$ – cegaton Oct 12 '15 at 23:38

    $\begingroup$ Easily! I round the square, then rotate it to show that it is still straight. PS blender can do everything. $\endgroup$ – David Oct 12 '15 at 23:41

Seriously people, Why won't you answer my question!!?!?!?!?

This is a simple question people, it shouldn't be too hard for any of you to figure out. blackhole could solve this it is so simple. your probably thinking, "if it is so simple, why cant you figure it out?" Because Im an Uber noob!!! My question is so simple I'm not going to bother telling you what it is!!!!! I want an answer and I want it now! and I'm not saying please!! But just because I'm so nice, I'll give you another question. I just watched two videos of someone rendering a cube in cycles, and somsone rendering a cube in Blender internal. Most useless video EVER!!! Yes or No? On a scale of 1-10 do you prefer cycles or blender internal? If I don't get any answers on this, I'm going to just use both Bi and cycles! I'm making a full length movie in the game engine and I need to know whether or not I should use cycles or blender internal! I would think that everything you do inside of blender is blender internal! isn't that the dumbest name ever heard of for a render engine??? and cycles- what is it cycling through? Headaches caused by trying to decipher the reason for the name? Bonus question! Just for you because you guys are so good at answering questions already! I wanted to make a breathtaking nuclear explosion on a hillside with the camera swooping up over a mountain with a view of the sunset behind. how can I make this? I just download blender and any tips on how I can un-zip the folder would help immensely.

Ps. If you choose blender internal, how can I switch to it from cycles? Ps. 2.0 I need my full length sci-fy movie of aliens causing the nuclear apocalypse done in 5 days. My assignment is due by then so I need an answer FAST

thanks!

bug in my python!

Please help! A bug in my python causes a lot of trouble, I use Blender to fix this problem. I can't make it run. This reptile doesn't feel ok at all, it swallowed a spider. Does someone know how I can use blender to fix this. Maybe if I run my blender, the noise makes the bug come out my python, and so my reptile feels ok.

Blender is sooooooo very slooooow!

so i've been trying for hours to render my sci-fi feature length animation in 4k using cycles (it's like prequel to interstellar, but with more explosions and way cooler effects). i'm rendering to AVI format, but my computer is like running way too slow. It's annoying! all of my games and skype are getting bugged down while blender renders! i can't even watch netflix like this! i don't understand why my computer is running so slow because it has always been very powerful,it has a 4TB hard drive and the latest update to the operating system. Is there a plugin to make it go faster?

    $\begingroup$ No joke, you took my idea. This is nearly exactly what I was going to do. "Renders too slow, then go on to explain how slow all my games and stuff are running." Crazy how alike we think. $\endgroup$ – David Oct 12 '15 at 23:35
