hello, not sure if it's my post you are referring to but....Blender is a great program ....the only problem is there is a very large learning curve to understanding and controlling the user interface. If you download it and want to use it, I found the best way to learn it is to take advantage of the video tutorials. If you prefer to use text tutorials make sure..... MAKE SURE
you don't skip ANY
sections. Everything you need is (well to start out) written into the program but you just need to know what it is and what it is called. Four other points that need to realized are:
1.) You should get python if you're running Windows. (Linux should have it as a module)
2.) Blender seems to run better under Linux.
3.) Blender is the epitome of keyboard shortcuts
you cannot work efficiently without them. One hand on the keyboard one hand on the mouse
as they say.
4.) Open Source software is great, please support it.
If you need any other advice on the program let me know, I am far from a master (far from what i'd consider a novice) but I have plenty of other off-site blender links. Cheers and happy Blending.
