    Blender 101, Shortcut/Hot Keys list

    updated June 21, 2012

    This is a list of shortcut keys for Blender 2.62 (and some 2.63 BMesh) -- Windows -- as we used them in the different weeks of the course. If a shortcut key was used in one class, it might not be listed in later class listings. I'm trying to keep the main keys for each class so they will be easier to find in the list.


    [ In this list, commas usually denote the release of a key. If two key strokes are side by side (ie.- Shift 'X') without a comma, the key should be held while pressing additional keys. If there is a comma (ie.- Shift, 'X', 'R'), the key should be released before making the additional key hits. ]

    Thanks RolinStone - I was actually looking for that for quite some time. It is an abbreviated list, so I'll keep up with this one as well per class. Yeah, I have too much time available.

    And one more shortcut
    CTRL+ 0 (Numpad) = Look through selected.
    You can select a camera and press CTRL+0 to see
    what you are actually shooting/rendering....

    And it can be done for any regular selected objects as well.

    A few items added and a few updated... now, some are not from the class but perhaps useful to know about
