Could someone plz make a tutorial of how to build a man in blender, animate him with several animations, export him to .x, and then implement him with animation in XNA? This would be very much appreciated and would allow ppl not familiar with the animation component on their feet fast.

Thanks...

I'll see what I can do after I christmas. Until then, I'm quite busy, and getting out the next release and some good examples to go along with it are high priority.

If possible, I suggest you try to get a copy of 3ds or maya. I know these cost money, but the painful truth is that blender does not provide great support for animation and has some terrible exporters.

Hey guys.

If you're looking for a good & free tool, check out XSI Mod Tool (free version of XSI that can export .x as well as .xsi (open format)):

For some tutorials, you can check out 3DBuzz.com. Google Video has some materials:
