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. for some reason i can not follow any link directly here on blendernation today.
    not on Microsoft Edge on Windows, and not with Mozilla Firefox in Ubuntu.
    i only can open the link as a new browser tab.
    is that normal?

    PS.: and while typing in the email addres on the formular i can not type in the 'at' on a german keyboard.
    as soon i press the AltGr key to compose th at '@' character, the feild content disapear.

  2. they fixed half-float textures.. awesome!
    I was using some half floaties, alonside with fully floating ones.. and my render results looked bad. I mean, the idea was there.. and I could see the potential of the image. but when I hit render, it wasn't really what I was aiming for. it wasn't the image what I had envisioned. I felt sad.. I was in total artistic block.. maybe I'm not up for this, I just can't produce art anymore...

    but now.. it all makes sense.. and wow!

    thanks devs.
