Blender 2.47 released!

August 24, 2008

Yep, it’s true!  The new version of Blender is now available! Blender 2.47!  However, don’t expect tons of new features, because this release is a bug fix release. The new splash screen is somewhat humerous, once again featuring a screenshot from BBB (Big Buck Bunny) but this time with the butterfly squashed by an apple.  I think the idea is that they killed some bugs in the program. ;D

Looking into what to do in the future with my current camcorder.  The issues that have arrisen with this particular model have caused too many problems for me to be satisfied.  I would love a great camera someday, but this one may not be it.  The .tod video container file and it being in HD two hurdles I am not overcoming effeciently yet, and it would be a simple, sweet solution to go with an SD DV MiniDV camcorder, though I will likely miss my current camcorder dearly.  ;(

I hope your day goes well, may God bless you dearly as you walk the path of life, and may you find Him.

I so dearly hope to make some beautiful animations, and I also hope that all our live action films will work out… sorry for how it’s all turning out, guys… perhaps I will write some scripts, because “scripts are half the film”, and then when the whole technical camcorder issue is worked out, we will be ready.

Thanks a lot, God bless,

Thanks for listening,

Blender 3D 2.46 Released!

May 23, 2008

How can I write about MaPZone and not mention Blender 3D’s new release, Blender 2.46! Blender is one of, if not my favorite, program I use. It is an excellent 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing program – and besides that, it’s open source, which means you can get it for free! (open source = free content and free code, so that the community can contribute what they think is needed, resulting in a rounded, professional package and frequent releases.)

It’s got a bunch of new features, so go ahead and check it out now!

Check out Blender’s new features!

Keep in mind, however, that Blender is a very complicated program and may take you a long time to learn how to use. If you have any questions as you are learning it, feel free ask me over e-mail or IM – I’d be more than glad to help. I still have a ton to learn myself…

God bless,
