The joints are turning

Luck is not always on our side and so the animation tutorial will be delayed a little. I do have it completely planned out though so pretty soon you'll see the first chapter. The complete tutorial will have 9 chapters ranging from vector transformations, through skinning, blending animations IK and saving.

It's the biggest such project I have got myself into so wish me luck!

The first chapter will just talk about vectors and vector transformation so those that already know this stuff can skip it without much thought.

In this chapter I will assume you've at least heard of vectors and I'll just speed through a few useful things like dot and cross products, and matrix transformations and some interesting applications, so even if you already understand vectors it'll be worth skimming though it.
