A screen capture of a scene in Elephant's Dream takes a prominent place as the only example of the bloom effect used being used in a virtual environment in the Wikipedia article on the bloom effect. This shows that Blender is just as good as any other professional tool.

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


  1. I think popping up of blender open project screenshots (BBB and Elephant dream) has more to do with Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license and fact that they dont have to care about licence agreements. Blender works looks awesome and they save time/energy/money against using licensed material from commercial world.

  2. My daughter has been researching Blender use at Universities and found that many in the US and Canada are using and teaching Blender but it's not common knowledge.
    Seems there is a huge silent ground swell.
