About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

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 ;-)


  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.)
