"I Actually Tried 1-Star Blender Addons"


If you watch only one Blender related video today, make sure it's this one. Smeaf purchases six Blender add-ons that received one-star reviews and actually verifies their claims that range from "This plugin is piece of shit" (sic) to "The developer didn't answer my support request". I couldn't stop watching, it's THAT hilarious!

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.


  1. Great video!
    I turned 71 in September and began learning Blender at 66. I love Blender!
    1982 CPM Sony SMC 70 8088 4 bit I made art
    1984 Cubocomp Picture Maker Configured PC AT computers and took a sales position to gain access to parts and clients that I worked with.
    I then made my first animations and sold a bunch of these systems. This was in the Analogue days when A VCR was controlled through the PC frame, one video edit. ten sections...300 edits
    1986 Sold Wavefron Unix software then I learned how to use it.
    Started a studio with SGI /Alias Research software and 3DS DOS
    Give it all up for 20 years, now I make fine art prints and hope to teach kids.
    You are an inspiration. The Blender community is the bomb.

    • True. However, this is a satirical post, and not an advertisement. Note that I also didn't include any links to the products, so I don't think this post needs it.

  2. A fun video. I have bought a few Blender add-ons from Blender Market and a few other places and most of them are excellent. Those that aren't excellent are good and they all work, so I would be sceptical of a Blender Market review claiming that an add-on straight out doesn't work.
