The other day I decided to get myself up to speed on all things Blender. I’ve not used the app very much but had done some simple rendering work for a couple of clients in the past. Anyway, I decided to download the latest version (2.72b) and have another look at the app.
This app has come on in leaps and bounds since I last used it. I always felt the UI suffered from a lack of finesse (just like Gimp really). The UI itself was a blocker to getting anything done unless you were prepared to spend a long time just getting to grips with that. The new UI really is very nice. I’ve also put together a couple of renders and a nice little physics demo animation. I’ll post those soon once I’ve got them completed and uploaded.
All I can say is that right now I’m really digging Blender in all it’s free glory. Really impressive stuff and it turns 20 years old in 2015!
