Right now no one convinced me to use floating buffer - neither did you.4BLD video finally up =D
I probably shouldn't have said that given that I have no experience of a fixed buffer. I think the two ways are equally valid though. Maybe I'll play around with a fixed buffer at some point, but i'm kind of scared of cycles with two pieces on the same face. I think it's nice though how floating buffer centers fit into my journey technique, and it's not hard to be speed optimal with a floating buffer if you have a little bit of thinkahead since center comms are so easy.Right now no one convinced me to use floating buffer - neither did you.
You said you highly recommend it, but a profit of using floating buffer is low - you just do 3 targets (1.5 algs) less.
And that is only if all your cycles have even number of targets. If one cycle ends on the odd letter and you do (as you said in your video) two 3-cycles, then you do one more algorithm, so if you didn't switch your buffer at this moment, you would do the same amount of algs.
(FYI, there are pure commutators that do two 2-cycles, but they are very specific, so setup moves would be complicated).
Another problem is memorization: how do you memorize you started a new cycle?
Another adavntage of fixed buffer is that you can speed optimize your algs so you don't think what setup move you must do now. Well, you can use speed-opt algs with floating buffer too, if you adjust top layer after switching the buffer, so the position of your buffer is always Ubr or Ubl. But you must not forget to adjust it back after all centers are solved, of course.
My BLD tutorial will be out on YouTube in a few weeks.Is there an actual tutorial (that you would recommend as the "best" for a beginner at BLD or that you have released) that covers the full BLD solving 'technique'.
Kind of weird question, but yes, is there just one place I can go to learn 3BLD. Videos are preferential, or even images. I just want it all in one place and it would be great if it had the "Noah Seal of Aprroval" so to speak haha.
I know that you are going to be providing full tutorials, but I am not actually sure if they are released yet. Sorry if they have and I am just missing something. Please just link me if that is the case.
Thank you for this NoahMy BLD tutorial will be out on YouTube in a few weeks.
I learned from Zane's tutorial myself: http://www.speedsolving.com/forum/showthread.php?34298-How-to-solve-a-Rubik-s-Cube-BLD-Progression
I think it's a very good tutorial for everything except memo. I recommend you use that tutorial to learn the techniques and then pick up a letter scheme as soon as possible for memo.
