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.


    • Yes, Blender can work with 4K footage nicely with a decent workstation.
      I just checked the render properties, you can actually make 65K Video with blender so its definitely future proof there ;)

      by the way here's the blog of the Tears of steel production with some more info on 4k compositing with blender

      • hi my dear friend randomguest, thank you very much for that info, i greatly appreciate it, God bless you, Hugs...

        • i have these spec...

          now i have 2 video cards ( 4GB )
          RAM 24 GB
          i7 3.8 Ghz
          1 TB HDD
          windows 7 ultimate

          i think i can, or do i need more power for getting 4K ?

          • I'm pretty sure you can get 4K to work on your machine, even with more advanced scenes, of course there is always more possible and you will meet some limits when doing hollywood-like compositing in 4K ;), but even for tears of steel i think the workstations they had weren't too far superior to yours, so you should be able to handle 4k with it well :)

          • Hi My Friend randomguest, thank you for replying me

            then... now i know i can do it, thanks a lot randomguest

    • that actually holds true for all Blender foundation films so far, even for BBB that visually appears to be a kids movie.

      • actually of all Blender production, BBB is the best rated of all (so what it's visually appears to be a kids movie? ain't most Pixar's productions are, too?).. read the comments on various sites, forums, message boards ...etc.

        i believe it's due to BBB lacks the one "cringe" factors other Blender productions have - awkward conversation(s) between the characters. while again BBB still pales in comparision with other major studios' dialouge-less shorts, it still stands out among all Blender's production.

        just my 2 cents.

        • From what haris500 said ["I can't even show my family this"] I thought he wanted to state its not children/family appropiate. What I was trying to say was just that none of the BF films so far seemed to be appropiate for children, not even BBB that totally looks like a children movie.

      • I fast-forwarded through the entire thing............bad acting and bad scripts annoy me TOS was like watching a flatly translated Japanese anime or foreign film or even some student films made by native english speakers ..............u roll your eyes and say "who the hell actually says s@%t like that!?" all the way through or just plain stop watching
