Gah, publisher, creator, keys, licences, source, whatever.
I want to make 3D models and animations, using an unrestricted blender, then I want to distribute my creations freely. I somehow managed to get an old version for windows off some magazine CD, but now I've come for the latest windows and linux versions there's loads more options, where do I go?
Download the Blender version for your OS along with the license key file to unlock the options that you used to have to pay for.
As far as I know, you can distribute your creations with it freely.
