Blender 2.6 Release Candidate um… released.

  So if you want to stay on the bleeding edge, go get it.   Or of course you can just wait 10 days for the 2.60 official release.   The main changes are: 3D audio support Translated UI with support for non-western fonts Improved nodes editing Animation system improvements Texture face properties moved to […]

Why is my imported model so damned tiny?

  This is a pretty common gotcha when working with Unity, but it’s so damned annoying it’s worth bringing attention to it.   If you export an FBX model, in this case from Blender, into Unity it might be really really really really tiny, even though you set it’s size up appropriately in Blender before […]

  Earlier this week I described the process of building Blender for Windows using CMake and Visual Studio.  While I was doing I actually did a series of screen captures for the more visual learners amongst us.  Problem is, my machine decided editing 1080p video was a crime against humanity, so I wasn’t able to […]

3D Studio Max, Maya and Softimage… for free????

  Well if you are a student that is, yes!  Autodesk has made an absolute ton of their programs available on a 36 month license for students.  That said, there is a very big but… and we will get to it in a moment.  First off, here are the applications they made available:   AutoCAD® […]
