cool, although do you have a 480p version like your last blender 2.5 video tutorial? i've recently installed google chrome, and in that and ie8 the blender text/buttons are very difficult to read.

Not on YouTube no. I am looking at higher res videos but not via that channel; it's just not cost effective to do. But yeah the other video is clearer because it was recorded at that size (Blender is resized to the appropriate width etc); when you shrink Blender like that the button 'appear' larger campared to doing it the other way and recording full screen (currently 1440x900 or 1680x1050).

understood and interesting. so it's less about the video size and more to do with what your recording. i'll keep that in mind if ever i'm recording any videos of blender's interface. speaking of which. today i've downloaded the latest stable release of 2.5 for the first time. and plan on trying it out soon, partly due to your tutorials.

Updated the main tutorial so it now has a lot more information available. Also now includes a set of videos showing each approach to transparency relative to Blender 2.49 and Blender 2.71.
