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. Yes, thanks for fixing the bugs, nice work.
    As a suggestion, some of us get the latest build from BuildBot and it would be nice to know what version this is so we don't double download the same thing. It would cut down your bandwidth as well.

  2. terminate called after throwing an instance of '__gnu_cxx::__concurrence_lock_error'
    what(): __gnu_cxx::__concurrence_lock_error
    Abort trap

    THANK YOU, gurus, for still catering to those of us Mac fans
    whose hardware is not yet up to 64 bit address spaces!

    However, your current 2.64a (32) doesn't want to launch
    on my OS 10.6.8 3GB Core 2 Duo :(

  3. OK: Your 64-bit version works for me, after complaining that

    ndof: 3Dx driver not found

    --but, yeah, it works! And so does LuxRender 1.1! :)

  4. got it. was so up for it.then the same problems.color pickers acting up.crashing after you run a smoke sim.and problems rendering. there taking a loooong time even on simple scenes.Also, thanks for all the hard work on this release,i'm sure as always,these glitches will go away.just one question though,if i open a build from 2.62 in 2.64a should i expect these types of things.thanks again for all the hard work ,i know its free.Happy Blending :)

  5. Even if I am a few days late, but I really would like to thanks the whole Team. You guys are doing really a great job. I'm sure that the whole community is so grateful to you guys.
