About Author

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. @ilyak It doesn't support light dispersion yet, but it will in a future version. It's a very fitting feature since appleseed is capable of full spectral rendering. You can think of it as an open source alternative somewhere between Arnold and Maxwell.

  2. You may want to think about making a youtube channel. At least with a YouTube channel, you could be making money from it to help fund development. You need over ten thousand views to apply for ads.

    So get on it as fast as possible and make a posting schedule and calendar. Before someone else steals your thunder and dev money.

    Love your work guys.
