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.


    • Don't be such an extreme fanboy...
      so many other programs can be used to make photo-realistic renders. Just because this facial cream bottle looks great doesn't mean it makes Blender "superior".

      I'm not dissing Blender, but extreme fanboys are what make programs look bad.

        • Here's a tip:
          Instead of basically saying "this is why blender is better than EVERYTHING" ...
          say something related to the topic you are posting on. Like everyone else. like "Wow that looks really great." or "awesome render"
          Don't comment on blender, comment on the creation that is being shown. Show your fanboyism on a Blender Release/Update topic.

          • I tend to agree with Not_Me. Seeing a good looking image made in **insert software here** does not make said software superior.

            If someone posts a great image rendered in Cycles, does it mean Cycles is superior? What if tomorrow someone posts a fab render made in Yafaray? Who's superior now? 

            Let's simply appreciate the effort made by Aditia.

            ps: FWIW, I totally love Blender and will not switch back to 3dsmax.

  1. Show us another freeware program that has the total functionality, expandability and potential that Blender does. That makes it superior in my book. If there is another out there I would truly like to know.

    • Price has nothing to do with this. He is claiming superiority. Basically saying "Blender is _better then everything_ because it can make a photo-realistic facial cream bottle.".
      Blender may be superior in some aspects (such as price) but it lacks in other areas, compared to other 3D software (free or payware).

      I've used blender for years, and still use it. I'm not saying "Blender sucks". It's just annoying seeing so many posts like "zomglolbbq blender is butter den everything!!!!!!!!! kekeke." (that was a bit extreme, but I bet it has happened somewhere :P).

  2. Zander Nicolic on

    Since v. 2.58 Blender is laboriously but successfully carving its niche in the production biz world.
    We all are (or should) be happy about this, and worthy works like this one are essential in keepig this process going on.
    The horde of works done with max+vray I see around are often awesome, but even too often they look all the same. Let's be (more) creative!
