Introduction to Blender

Filed under

HowTos

If you’ve ever dreamed of creating the next Shrek or Kung Fu Panda, or even working on a more modest 3D modelling project, you’ll need a piece of software like Blender.

3D modelling is a specialist area, and there aren’t too many software players in the field. Commercial studios tend to use proprietary software like Autodesk Maya or 3ds Max (Maya has the edge for film making at the moment).

If you want to be using the same software as the big commercial players, you’ll need one of those – and you’ll need to be dipping into your pocket for at least $1000 if you want to use it for more than 90 days. But if you prefer your software to come with a cheaper price tag – $0 for example – then Blender almost certainly has all the features you’ll need.

  • Introducing Stremio, a More Complete and Powerful Popcorn Time Alternative
    Stremio is an application built with Electron that streams and plays movies, TV shows, Youtube channels, and TV channels, from torrents. Sounds familiar?
  • mt-st project new homepage
    A short public notice: mt-st project new homepage at https://github.com/iustin/mt-st. Feel free to forward your distribution-specific patches for upstream integration!
  • letsencrypt support in propellor
    I'm using the reference letsencrypt client. While I've seen complaints that it has a lot of dependencies and is too complicated, it seemed to only need to pull in a few packages, and use only a few megabytes of disk space, and it has fewer options than ls does. So seems fine. (Although it would be nice to have some alternatives packaged in Debian.)
  • New release: usbguard-0.4
    I’m not dead yet. And the project is still alive too. It’s been a while since the last release, so it’s time to do another. The biggest improvements were made to the rule language by introducing the rule conditions and to the CLI by introducing a new command, usbguard, for interacting with a running USBGuard daemon instance and for generating initial policies.
