Blender 3.1 Enters Beta, Splash Screen Revealed


While the Blender 3.0 release is still making waves, Blender 3.1's development is in full swing, having just entered Beta almost a month out of its final release. Blender 3.1 entering beta means that no new major features will be added to it as of this point, in favor of stabilization and fine-tuning for the final release on the 9th of March. New features will now be added to the newly minted Blender 3.2 alpha, also available for download.

A new release entering Beta is always celebrated by the reveal of a new Splashscreen, with this latest one being a gorgeous artwork by Lorenzo Aiello. The splash screen will be available for download when Blender 3.1 is released.

Download the latest Blender 3.1 beta and 3.2 alpha on the download link below:

  1. interesting when Blender will fix import most industry standart formats?
    Alembic - import 2-3 time slower than other 3 apps and in viewport alembic cache file has a 10x slower playback than in C4D for example.
    FBX import. Bugs with camera orientation. 500 Mb Fbx file import in C4D 2 min. Blender import 500 Mb Fbx file - 37 min. This is incredible to open FBX file in 2022 year over 1 hour. So stupid development.

  2. The only problem with all this development is that I can't keep up with the pace! Every time I'm about to start a Blender session, there's a new version to download first. Love it.
