Here are some preferences that you may wish to set initially. See the section Preferences for the complete list of available settings.


Enable Edit ‣ Preferences ‣ Interface ‣ Translation, and choose the Language and what to translate from Interface, Tooltips and New Data.

See 언어 for details.


If you have a compact keyboard without a separate number pad, enable Preferences ‣ Input ‣ Keyboard ‣ Emulate Numpad. This gives you the 3D view shortcuts regularly used on the number pad.

If you do not have a middle mouse button, you can enable Preferences ‣ Input ‣ Mouse ‣ Emulate 3 Button Mouse. This allows you to hold the Alt or OSKey key while dragging with the mouse, to orbit.

See Input Preferences for details.

파일과 경로#

At Preferences ‣ File Paths you can set options such as what Image Editor (GIMP, Krita…) and Animation Player to use.

Temporary Directory 로 임시 렌더나 자동 저장 등의 임시 파일을 어디에 놓을지 정할 수 있어요.

경로 맨 앞에 ``//``가 붙어 있다면 그건 지금 열려있는 블렌더 파일(.blend)이 들어있는 폴더를 뜻하는데, 상대 경로(relative path)에 있는 파일들을 사용할 때 쓰여요.

See File Preferences for details.

Save & Load#

If you trust the source of your blend-files, you can enable Auto Run Python Scripts. This option is meant to protect you from malicious Python scripts in blend-files that you got from someone else. Many users turn this option on, as advanced rigs tend to use scripts of some sort.
