BPUP: Blender Pause and Unpause!


Linkun writes:

Hey all! BPUP is a new free Blender add-on that allows you to pause and unpause Blender at ANY time, Including during a render. When you pause Blender, a icon in the taskbar will appear. To resume the Blender application, simply left-click on the in and hit 'Resume'. BPUP can even hold a pause when your computer is asleep!! This add-on is currently for Windows only. It can be downloaded free from Gumroad.


  1. Pretty amazed at this feature, it'll make client renders much easier to manage when there are several on the go.
    Now if there was an option to update this with saving renders during a rendering in case of a power cut or crash this would be the most used addon ever probably. But for what is available right now this is an amazing addon.
