News: BlenderNewbies Blender 2.5 Training DVDs (Final Update)

This is the final update for the training dvd. The next notice will be the official release, in about two weeks.

It turns out that the final product is now FOUR DVD-Rs! Originally, this was supposed to be two dvds, but I found it difficult to stay within that limitation. I tried, but ultimately decided it would be simpler to not fight it.

The original price for the two dvds was $35, but I will have to increase the price to $50 for the four dvds. However, this doesn't effect those that have pre-ordered the dvds. And, I think it's only fair to continue offering the training at the original $35 price for a two-week grace period for those that have been waiting for the official release to purchase.

So, if you're interested in purchasing the training dvds, you can still get them for $35 plus postage and handling (a steal) until May 13th! After May 13, 2011, the price will be $50 (plus postage and handling).

You can get more info about the training, here. This page is the original announcement and the graphics could use some updating, but I plan to get to that over the next two weeks.
