Why are Professional Animators Flocking to Blender?


Southernshotty takes a look at the use of Blender in professional environments. And while acknowledging that Blender isn't the industry standard, it definitely has a place in the professional pipeline.

Blender has several unique features; grease pencil, its open source nature that makes it easy to integrate into existing pipelines and more. The video has a great overview of what makes Blender attractive for studios.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
