' Bforartists' is a fork of Blender with an updated UI. It contains more directly accessible features through toolbars, quick action buttons etc. It's not 'just' an add-on, but an entirely separate build.
The project describes itself as:
Bforartists is a complete free and open source 3D suite to create 3D content. It offers you the full 3D art pipeline to create game graphics, prerendered movies and stills. From modeling, sculpting, texturing, rigging, animation, rendering, up to post processing.
Bforartists stands for Be For Artists. A reminder to develop for the user, not the programmer.
Bforartists is a fork of the popluar open source 3d software Blender. The primary goal of the Bforartists fork is to deliver a better graphical UI and a better usability. This means a complete switch in the useage philosophy. Away from the hotkey and speed centered useage. Towards a user friendly and intuitive graphical UI.
Note that Bforartists is fully functional. Every feature that works in Blender should also work in Bforartists. Note also, we are always searching for volunteers to get the development going. Every help is welcome
What do you think of the project, and their approach of forking Blender development?
