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. Thanks for that it was fun. Did you count the clones? There are four, left - right - center and camera!

    I think that I should have used the tracked image as the background fill around the edges to save resolution loss during blow up (adding motion created black edges)..

  2. I do like the work . First thing comes to my mind is the movie ,Moon . Break down was little complicated to grab it all, for me :) I would love to see long nice tutorial .

  3. Thanks everyone for your kind words. I think that next time I will need a mobile blue screen, dragged by an assistant (my kids don't do enough around home anyway). That way I can get some cross overs and better interaction.
