The idea to start BlenderMasters came from the need that there are a few Brazilian Blender users. IÂ´m from Brazil and I wanted to begin a work to show what Blender could do in several languages, starting with Portuguese and English.
The dream is a site with news in several languages, as much as I could write. Of course, I need help from the community to translate to other languages.
Users of BlenderMasters have access to rich tutorials, news, a place to host files, a forum, files, plugins and nowadays, to RenderMaster. RenderMaster is a really new project to make Blender Renders online, with a PHP/shell script and Blender running on a Debian server. Anyone can upload a .blend and download the .jpg rendered image. Of course, it has bugs and doesn't render the image in some cases but, to the default render it works fine in most of the cases.
The difference with BlenderMasters is that IÂ´d like to show a professional place. Sections like "Did you know?" or a project like RenderMaster, a huge place to upload Blender plugins. The goal is to have a really good place to discover cool things about Blender.
