[Bf-education] Outrageous Suggestion

Hi Doug,

a few comments about your last post.

* Axis Naming *
In fact, there is a standard about the orientation of the axes. You might remember it from you geometry class back in school, as a right-handed orientation for a three dimensional coordinate system. It's a basic principle which lies as a foundation for pretty much all modern engineering and architecture.


* Selecting objects *
I totally disagree with you. Mouse selection with RMB should not be considered or promoted as an unprofessional feature simply because the other tool users do differently. It's just another way to do the same. I wouldn't call "unprofessional drivers" the people in UK (again, apologies to my friends in UK for the example) just because they drive on the left side of the road while we all here in America do it on the right side.

In my opinion, We should be discussing whether certain functionality is properly implemented so that an user moving from one tool to another can continue with his project.

 although the material produced directly by BF faces an expert audience,
 we couldn't say that there isn't material available 
for beginners in the community. The books from Tony Mullen, Roger Wickes, Rolland Hess, Allan Brito, just to name a few, are the front gate to the Blender Universe. There are thousands of free videotutorials in so many languages, that is hard for me to believe that this issue is uncovered.

Well, that's just my opinion! :-)
