I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)

    • Agreed. We all have to make a living, but I suspect the 'introductory' (and ex VAT) price of $97 will be of no interest to 97% of Blender users. And it's another $97 for the 'skies' package. Considering Blender is given away for nothing, I find these double-digit prices distasteful.

      • Come on they put a lot of work into this. And the UI and workflow seems to be good and solid.

        If a pro really needs this is a different question. I think this is rather an asset manager than a lighting studio. Cannot you do the same by hand equally fast?

        • You have the Asset Management Addon to do the same.
          The difference is that you can add your own setups to your library ;)

          • My concern is that Blender could get a bad reputation for being as expensive as the competition "Sure, they claim it's 'free', but then you have to pay $500 for all the useful addons!".

      • even a price as cheap as $1 would probably turn off 97% of all users.

        i cant really comprehend your point "considering blender is given away for nothing", either. if you think this through, any kind of work done inside blender would have to be given away for free just because the tool did not cost anything..

        also would you ask someone in real life to work for you long hours and offer him just a few dollars? time to develop some respect for digital work, i guess.

    • There's an interesting balance Andrew has to determine for himself. - If he sold 5 times as many copies at $25.00 instead of $97.00 he would be ahead. But I assume he knows more about his business than I do. I just hope he keeps producing his add-ons. They're very useful.
