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. Epic reel! Its really is amazing how Cycles has advanced in just the time I have been using Blender ( 3 months at most ). Cant wait for smoke to be added to Cycles in the full release.

  2. Can Cycles' quality be improved even further for even more realistic renderings? Or is this outside its scope? Octane and Maxwell seem to produce more photorealistic renderings than Cycles.

    Very nice, except I think for the shot of the rocket blasting off from tears of steel. The fire doesn't look quite right.
