So many reasons to learn Blender

Everyone is spending more time at home these days with the global pandemic. This has thrown normal patterns of life in the air. In the previous normal, my pattern had me with my wife Blair most Saturdays at her silversmithing studio. My time there usually involves changing light bulbs, fixing smithing equipment, dealing with stuff on the computer that runs the joint. The studio is now closed due to the pandemic, so Saturdays...uh...everyday for the next several weeks (months?) will be spent at home.

360 Video

My day job may require shooting 360 video for a VR project. Shooting 360 content is something I've never done before. I find YouTube extremely frustrating at times as the quality of the content can be...uh...less than awesome. I really don't need to see another unboxing video of the latest 360 camera, and I will need something way better than a consumer camera but won't have a Hollywood budget.
