Ton Roosendaal's intro to the SIGGRAPH 2007 Blender exhibit


ton-at-the-blender-booth.jpgTon asked me to do a quick introduction video like he did of the one at the Blender Institute offices. A quick walk through the exhibit area from the entrance to the Blender exhibit. Also appearing is Roland Hess (Harkyman). I promised Ton that I'd publish this video first.

Alternate Site #1

Alternate Site #2 Revver You can view in either Flash or Quicktime (Slower to load) or download the Qicktime format.


  1. arrgh, I can't see the video as I cant get a 64bit linux flash plugin, is there any chance that someone could put this up as an mpeg or a torrent? btw, sorry to be complaining on my first post, I love this blog and it keeps me sane(ish) during the long dreary days at work. Keep up the good work,


  2. I can't see this video, and also wasn't able to see the office one the other week, neither at work or at home. :[
    Is there anything I need to enable\disable?

  3. Actually Flash 7 seems sufficient. Here on FreeBSD, Flash 9 is particularly unstable. It would be nice though if there were links to alternate versions as something more widely supported by those of us with more unconventional OSes. But I guess this approach helps BlenderNation bandwidth bills. Maybe only make the link visible if Flash seems to not be working?

  4. I have Adobe Flash 9 installed, but the flash video does not appear in my internet explorer 7 browser, It does however show up in firefox and safari.

  5. Hmm, still nothing :l Flash 9 installed, all blockers and stuff disabled. I use Avant Browser, but have also tried all options in IE 7 as well, all to no avail.
    Ah well.
    Thanks for the advice tho!

  6. Oh the video supposed to be visible in ths page? I cant see it atm and thought it was missing. I found it by doing a search on our big friend Google Video :)

  7. Wow! The Blender booth is much harder to find this year. Last year, we were right on on the edge and next to the big guys (Disney, Houdini, Boxx). Hmmm. Perhaps they lobbied to far away from us given the software is free! ;)

  8. johantri ----- it's a place in Amsterdam where men can go and ... well... ahem... you see there's these business girls in the store fronts and they look really good and they make money by... hmmm... well what they do is considered one of the oldest professions in the world and well... dam just Google it. ;-)

  9. Hi Tim, just to let you know us 64 bit linux users cannot see flash media, if you could e-mail me an avi or other video file I try to get it hosted somewhere for download

    my addy is [email protected],

    it may have to wait until the middle of next week as i am going to hospital on monday but it would be appreciated by many people.
