SIGGRAPH 2020 - Official Blender Presentation - August 29


While the physical SIGGRAPH event has been canceled this year, the free online version is coming up! On Saturday, August 29, the Blender Foundation will celebrate the launch of Blender 2.90 (scheduled for August 26), and give the community a chance to share their work and learn more about Blender.

This LA ACM SIGGRAPH and LA Blender User Group joint Zoom event will feature an overview highlighting the new features of version 2.90, given by the Blender Foundation, as well as project presentations by working pros who use Blender in their day-to-day work at their studios. There will also be lots of Q&A so if you've been meaning to find out more about Blender this is your chance, and if you already use it, then this is an event you won't want to miss!
