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.


      • Well, this isn't a full release yet, just rc (release candidate), so a video might be a bit premature for this post. Also even if it was a full release, blender incrementally updates features, so they usually aren't completely stunning on their own and the list of features is often brief. They release a new blender version at like 6 times the rate of the other guys. I don't think a feature video is quite as useful in our situation. Plus if you follow any of the devs on social media or the open projects, you can often catch little feature videos that way.

        But hey, blender is a community effort. If a user wants to create feature videos for the releases they totally should. Thomas Beck was doing some pretty good feature previews for a long while.

      • Weird... the only option I get for OpenSubdiv is None. I don't use the proprietary driver fglrx, but Mesa / Gallium / AMD Barts... this might be unrelated since for me the CPU option is also missing, which has nothing to do with video card or driver.
