Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with the exercise files, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
If you are a premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to all of the Blender scene files used in each of the chapters of this course. These exercise files are in the exercise files folder which I have placed on my desktop. You can of course store this folder where ever you like. There are scene files that accompany most of the movies in this title. They reside in subfolders named according to the chapters. It is not necessary for you to use these files, you can use files of your own in place of them if you like.
If you are a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you won't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along using files containing your own work. That having been said then, let's move forward and get started with our creating rigid body simulations in Blender course.
