Blender is getting better. And better.

Post by Monkeyboi »

I just realised that Blender is getting friggin awesome!

very soon we will have

proper radiosity rendering,
new metaballs,
more constraints,
edgeloop/faceloop selection,
undo in edit mode

In the not so distant future, we will have

a new user interface, (wich will be more consistant, easy to learn, more customisable, and better looking)
XML compabibility
possobility of Yafray integration
gameengine back

and posobilities of

manipulators (visual 3D transform handles)
network rendering
more NLA control
more drawing types for 3d models
a new particle system
incorporation of physics primitives
cool 'Wings' style modeling


Er... is the future bright or what?

Agreed. Open sourcing is the best thing that ever happened to Blender.

Blender is the best 3d app that I have ever used. It's compact yet powerful, stable, fast and it's future is not determined by a marketing department. That's the best thing about Blender, any Blender user can improve it's use by coding new features for it, beta testing the proposed features of other users or offering great ideas for new software tools.

And it keeps going, on and on and on......

Huh?
That's one way to help rumours in the world. :shock: As far as I know, nobody's working on a particle system. :(

With regards,

You can have one of two things: Progress or Progress Reports.

Why not incorporate the Dynamica code and improve upon that in the Tuhopuu tree?

no, it means it's a funny when you know how Dynamica works and how the particles in Blender works and the amount of reworking it would take to mix the two.

I wish that only features that are important are included into Blender... and that it keeps being fast.. I won't like if blender someday can be defined like Blender = max + maya + lightwave if it gets slow...
