Blend Swap Needs Your Help


John Roper writes:

As you guys may have seen, Matthew Muldoon put out a request for help with Blend Swap a couple of months ago. Since then, I've joined the team, and we have started thinking about how the site can be improved in the future. I've put together this short list of questions about how the community uses Blend Swap and we would love to hear what you guys have to say. If you have five minutes, please take the time to fill out this survey because all responses will really help us in deciding the future of Blend Swap.

John Roper

I have been working part-time with computer development in entertainment for 4 years. Currently I work for Theory Studios as a workflow technical director on productions such as Amazon's Man In the High Castle Season 2 (Nominated for an Emmy), Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, and Sesame Street in addition to freelancing for clients such as the Cycles Material Vault and Blackheart Media. My software experience includes Blender, Maya, Houdini, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and the Allegorithmic Substance Tools. I have also worked with PyQt, Flask, SQL (MySQL, SQLite), Electron, AngularJS, and SocketIO among other technologies.


  1. done! One thing I forgot in the survey: it might be a good idea to require a white, shadeless backdrop on model renders (obv, not scenes) this way they could be neatly implemented on the site. Imagine hovering over the borderless model preview and then getting a pop up displaying the name etc. on hover. Hope you get my idea :D

  2. I know its just me but I had to lie on question one.
