I have added a link to the 3DBuzz tutorial videos. They are a general introduction to Blender at the moment.

Hmm yet another interesting point - our animation blending is indeed just non-existant at the moment. This makes movements jerky occasionally. However, as this is not a top priority, dont expect some progress here, too soon.
