The Plumiferos team has made their version of Blender, called PlumiBlender, available to all.
From the Plumiferos production diary:
"So you want to make a 3D movie at home ? But you want to use the SAME tools we
use here at the studio ? And for FREE ? Don't search any further, ladies and
gentlemen, you can download NOW the amazing PlumiBlender, the Blender version
we use at the studio every day of the week (including weekends sometimes)."
Find Windows (32-bit) and Ubuntu (dapper) 32bit builds at graphicall.
For a full list of included features visit the Plumiferos diary both English and Spanish translations are available.
just tried the windows build.
the "Use 3d transform manipulator (Ctrl Space)" icon is really cute.
makes me laugh. ^_^
heheh that's something that came up when adding some icons to our build, just thought "oh! the 3d manipulator icon.. why not moving this finger over here and.." :) for some people it took a while to discover.
also the icon in "UV/Image editor" and the title is Timmy, that fella is a partner of us at the studio, he even have a website! http://timmypeludomatematico.googlepages.com and a blender version! be aware, it's insane.
Ok, seriously, the sources of PlumiBlender can be found here: http://repo.or.cz/w/plumiferos.git
We still doesn't have builds for OSX, so.. if someone is feeling like building PlumiBlender for this OS (or any other) we would appreciate it!
Hey, I'm building a Mac OS X build, if it compiles correctly, I'll post it tomorrow when I get to school.
Are these changes going to be integrated back to Blender? In version 2.5 perhaps? Then, Blender will have another workflow boost, making it a more valuable option for commercial/professional usage. Very nice, indeed! :)
Wow, this is feature rich! The key control for the sequencer does make life easier. I hope some of these features find their way to the blender trunk! Plumiferos not only produce good looking pictures, but also valuable code
@ Aaron: that's great, maybe you could post a link here once (if?) it becomes available....?
The thing is that right now it looks like that I can't finish my latest animation with the official blender due to what seems to be a render bug (black dots when using nodes and a halo spot) and I really hope that the PlumiBlender FixNode can solve the problem. (I'm also just downloading Ubuntu 7.04, but it is still not clear to me if I can get it to work on my iMac G5.)
Here is the link to it on GraphicAll.org. It doesn't have FFMPEG because I couldn't get it to compile correctly, but I'll try later today to build it with FFMPEG.
Thanks! Downloading now...
might I request an intel mac compile?
Hmm... It looks like it's not working under OS X 10.5 (quits at start)...? I'll keep trying with possible newer builds...
Same question as Daerd !
I hope some of these features will be included in the main trunk !
another +1 to Daerd's question! :) and thats a cool build! :)
the hand icon's different. >:))
best change is the 3d manipulator widget icon :))
best change is the 3d hand manipulator icon :))
Is there an Ubuntu 64-bit .deb out there on the interwebs? Love to try it out, but I am on 64-bit on the desktop and the lappy.
