About the 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. if there is something I would love, I would like for yafaray not make Blender unusable while I render, unless I just don't know how to do this. Because with Lux once I start rendering I can continue working on my file I just reduce the number of threads Lux uses and am good to go. I should check this out.
