Something's afoot on peach.blender.org, and we all know what :-)
About the Author
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.
w000t, talk about a build-up!
Let 's shake up the world!!!
Only six minutes left 'til noon! (or 6:00 AM where I live...)
Oh, and I hate to be so off-topic, but... "Published by Bart?"
@Gryphon: well, I can't really miss this party now,can I? :)
Good point. It wouldn't be the same without you.
Yay, can't wait!
not surprised at Buck's expression there .. 'Eeek, all my servers are about to explode...'
hey! men! it's not serious!!!
my work stopped.... come on!!!
Heb jop jibbly job fliff - oh eek!! - I'm speechless.
is this ... it is .. no it isn't, but wait..yeah, yeah, yeah..it's there. thank you so much!
"and we all know what :-)"...
what? What's happening?
Lol, that's what I was going to say!
feels like new year countdown :-)
I can't wait!
And Bart, it's nice to see you back, even if it is temporary. =D
it's 6pm here , been waiting ALL DAY !
^^ (just in case, I was joking) ^^
@bharling: lol... Well didn't Ton say he wanted explosions for his next movie?
And even if the server doesn't explode, I bet some people's refresh buttons already have :P
Its like a countdown... But when it hits zero it goes back to 10 again... *whines*
anyone else obsesivly pushing refresh? :)
Love u Blender
Love u Big Buck Bunny
Love u Bart!!!!
Around noon could mean up to 12:30. Or it could mean tomorrow depending on difficulties.
*hoping* *hoping* *waiting* *pressing refresh* *hoping* ....
Eek! Nothing's happening? =P
I've been spending all day at work waiting for this. I can't start working until I've seen the Buck. Show me the Buck. :)
Man, my refresh is on fire!
whats happening? there deleting all the files and burning up the institute
Weel where is the rabbit now? in a garden? in a screen?
10 pints of Guinness to whoever gets the first posting of the Trailer Is Online news :)
That's masochism! Why did you guys put an giant 160 KB image on the peach blog instead of a nice, small HTML message? Now where everyone's hitting F5 on and on...
Are you trying to see how much traffic the server can handle?
Yeah Bart! Very cool!
I nearly missed that - welcome back Bart, you've been missed!!!
Yeah, or a nice small torrent file! :-D
Lol, the anticipation!
Can't wait to get my greedy little browser onto the download section!!!
Oh are you back from Mars already? LOL
Damn these timezones! It's almost midnight and it still hasn't been released! I'll have to wait for tomorrow! The horror!
If anyone is going crazy and needs a 5 minute distraction while waiting for BBB, someone on the forums previousl posted this other cool online 3D CGI furry animation.
My F5 is no longer working, LOL
(BTW kidding, I'm not refreshing that much)
Silly wabbit.... hahahahahh! where is my gun?
@Mal that was one of the funniest vids I have ever seen! LOL
so... when? =)
We're working on it! We're working on it! We're working on it!
(luckily it's still noon somewhere at atlantic ocean still... :)
must... stay... awake...
Two words: Can't wait!
@ton: No, that doesn't count! Here in germany it's 13:51, as well as in the netherlands - and if we don't get it soon, we'll leave our houses full of anger and walk trough the streets vandalizing...
No, but could you give a hint how long it may take / what doesn't work yet?
Keep fighting the good fight Ton!!
You will get your movies when Ton says so!! Till then... sit tight. Have a brandy. Watch the trailer :P
Warm greetings my little lemmings,
here speaks the PRIKK, the propietary international killer kommando and we have kidnapped your download servers.
Ton, when you read this we have infected all the files on the server with our EVIL, short for evil invasive lurker, and the server will destroy itself in the next two hours UNLESS you take the source code of Blender off the web and make it a commercial and expensive software. We, the PRIKKs, have watched this development far too long and your attempts to create a FREE program must be stopped.
Capitalism stands behind us, we will destroy you all.
*biiiiiuuuuzzppp* end of message
Note: Mikael: please don't. There wil be centralised torrent files available soon enough. Give the team their moment of glory! Bart
tananan tan tanananaaan, tanan tan tanan nanaan ( BBB's soundtrack) (8)
Production Files browser is up and running, waiting for release the secret adress :)

In fact I'm hitting F5 on Blendernation more freqnently ;P

it's May 30th 2008 5:41 noon here in India (HYDERABAD)
and am waiting Desperately for BBB here.
Remember to seed people!!
But I can't torrent it... grrrr...
Just 2 hours, 40 minutes to go...
Estimated download finish time = 3am.
oH I'm SOOOO happy!!!!
And if you run into the localhost problem like I did,:
just delete the first part "localhost/peach/wp-admin/http/"
my example looks like " blender.waag.org/big_buck_bunny_720p_h264.mov.torrent "
Ah, that makes sense! Excellent!
at last it's released on line
but with out File size specified
I wonder what format is the 'best'
*downloading the 720p mp4-torrent*
(my system could not handle the full 1080p glory of the trailer :-( )
can anyone authorized Specify sizes plz
The links are being fixed currently.
here is a youtube version: youtube.com/watch?v=YE7VzlLtp-4
I watched it, really incredible animation work.
I too wonder what format gives the best quality... I'm trying my luck with 1080p mp4...
