The Blender Siggraph Reel for 2012 saw over 140 entries submitted - all quality stuff.
After trawling through all the entries, downloading, labeling, compressing and getting the team to select their favorites, I cut together this awesome 2:30 minute reel which debuted at SIGGRAPH 2012.
The most amazing this was that I did it all from my home office in Sydney, Australia, and within hours of completing the final approved edit, it was uploaded to ftp, downloaded at the exhibition hall in LA and broadcast on the screen at the Blender booth - and in glorious 1080p HD resolution, no less.
All up, there are about 24 different entries in this reel, which showcase some of Blender's most exciting features - from motion tracking, to modelling, rendering to compositing.
A huge thanks to all who sent in their work. I hope you enjoy this stunning showcase.
