Blender - AMAZING

Post by squirrel » Fri Mar 09, 2007 7:23 am

Hey all - I've been out of 3d modelling/animation work professionally for a few years. A recent personal project found me looking for a capable modeler but given I'm in a different industry and I don't pirate I was a bit stumped. I found a bunch of Blender reviews and am giving it a whirl (OS X).

In short - I'm amazed. I use a fair bit of OSS under both OS X and Ubuntu (Inkscape, OpenOffice/NeoOffice, GiMP, NVU) but Blender is easily the most polished and complete OSS application I've ever tried. In a few hours I have a satisfactory prototype of the model I need - something I'd budgeted two weeks to get done - and am rapidly adding things I'd written off (due to my lack of recent modeling experience and not having a commercial tool.)

Massive kudos to the Blender team and contributors - I'm a avid user and evangelist after two days. It's accessible, capable, sensible and powerful.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, I didn't see one for Raves!

hi squirrel!

I also want to extend a warm welcome to you from the community.

If you haven't already discovered blenderartists.org, I suggest you visit that forum also. Most of the artists and other people with talent hang out there. blender.org is mainly a development forum.

That "blender-school" site is very nice... I hope I can hold a course using that material in my school. Thanks a trillion.
