More proof that Blender makes an excellent commercial tool. Zac Duff (Greenlig@blenderartists) utilized Blender to create a 7.5 minute animation for an Engineering company. The animation while not full of special effects like hair or softbody dynamics does show the range of flexibility and how Blender can be used within a commercial project.
Zac Duff says:
I'm a blender head who got a great break. I have in the last 4 weeks worked on a project for a Engineering company and I used blender for it. We were commisioned to make an animation for a very large mine in western Tasmania, Australia. What started out as a 3 minute animation blew out to a 7.5 minute animation that will be showing around Europe as part of a showcase for the mine company. I just wanted to let you guys know that a large commercial project used this brilliant software to very good effect!! The clients were very happy with the end product.
