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. Yea I saw this a couple of months ago, but I would love to see this running real-time while pushing and pulling like in Marvelous designer, that way is better for creating user controlled folds. Nice to see this is moving to the right direction.

    It would be great if Blender was recommended for beginners because to use all this, you have to have a lot of knowledge about the software. It would be great too if you had a tool or plugin that helps sew clothes in Blender more easily.

  3. Why are so many Blender 'teachers' so determined to impress us with how fast they are on the interface, when they should slow it down enough to actually show us what they're doing and, oh I dunno, actually teach??!! Slow it down, Bart.

  4. @TED JACKSON Because tutorials like this aren't meant for fresh beginners. I mean, normally people won't pick up blender for the first time and say "ok let's make this character a shirt". They usually start with simple objects to get used to the software. If the video covered every click and keystroke, it would be tediously lengthy for intermediate users to watch. There are some pretty good beginners' tutorials like the ones from Blender Guru. Watch them first and this one should be pretty straightforward.
