A friend asked me to tell him, “…how cool Blender is (please)“.
So here was my response.
It’s the biggest open source 3D software and Ton (the founder) is a good guy with an honorable vision. It can model, rig, texture, animate, FX, composite and even has a video game engine built in.
The project that is currently in-progress is going to be live action. Google even donated some of its employees to create a 3D camera solving component to help with create high-end visual effects.
Here are some open-source movies that they created using this FREE software.
And Big Buck Bunny certainly displays a high level of quality with it’s fur.
