Viewport Project – Plan of Action


Dalai presents an overview of the 2017 development roadmap for Blender, including the new EEVEE, or "Extra Easy Virtual Environment Engine".

December, the time of the year for hot chocolate mugs, bright decoration lights and, of course, development roadmap. In the spirit of the season, the following document is the plan of action for the viewport project in Blender 2.8. Throughout 2017 we are expecting to tackle:

  • Final design of engines and passes
  • Clay engine
  • Implement remaining edit modes as passes
  • Workbench engine
  • Eevee engine
  • Port Cycles materials to the Eevee engine
  • Implement missing engines

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 ;-)
