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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Hey friends yesterday the BLENDER DEMO in IIT was great...B.Tech and M.Tech guys in front of me...30 - 40 people

    I think i had told them all i had thought ....

    i had planned it for 1 hour ..time and constraints also permits

    so it was a 2 and 1/2 hour presentation.

    i am satisfied with my efforts ... though there are some areas to look upon in terms of verbal and presentation skills

    Initially i faced some graphics-hardware issues

    I had given presentation on Ubuntu laptop

    I want to run Club Silo game from the .Blend but dont know game menus were not responding to key strokes...though i had tested it on windows and fedora worked fine
    but anyways....

    So here is WHAT I HAD DONE ?...I you wanna know

    1. I had started with Blender intro - Is it Blender or Blunder ??

    2. Then what you can do with it .

    3d Images - Shown them

    Movies - Elephants dream (shown them)
    - Plumiferos Movie (Screen Shots)
    - Blender in spider man 2 ??(discussed)
    - Fluid Simulation (Still images + Mike pan's demo reel (had Fluid demo)

    Standalone 3d games - Club Silo (luma labs)
    {Run it from .blend ,faced some issues - graphic card compatibility }
    - Some other game demos shown

    3. Compared Blender with max,maya

    4. Resources -Links
    - Blender Toolbar - No need to dive in sea of bookmarks for beginners

    5. Final thoughts

    6.Happy Blending Message....

    7. Jumped in to Blender
    - 3d Modeling demo (Basic)
    - Animation demo(Basic)
    - Game engine demo(Basic)
    - Fluid demo (Basic)
    - Scripting intro (Python + BLENDER API)

    8. Regression Files demo
    - graphics demo (selected .blend)
    -physics demo (selected .blend)

    9. Satisfied queries of future blender heads in between the demo

    10. Project peach and Apricot - screen shots
    (i said hair and portion in blender is weak but the screen shots had lot of nice fur...i said they had improved a lot now...blender movies act as feedback for blender developers too)...Told them it was in house production tool...if u want you can check the history

    11. That's all folks

    one guy asked next time come with python... that is Blending into python :)

  2. Gaurav, Great job! Thanks for posting all the videos and photos too. I like the outline of your presentation. Whenever I have given demos time has always been a big considerartion. Blender has so much it is hard to show it all. Once I was given only 15 minutes and another time 2 hours. (I liked the 2 hours much more.)
