555 Blender Tutorials

In this feature we bring you 555 Blender Tutorials. That’s right, 555! Blender is a open source 3D graphics application. That means its free, so go download it! We’ll wait…..

OK, now that you have your brand new software you may be asking yourself, what the hell does this thing do? Well, it can be used for modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging, water simulations, skinning, animating, rendering, particle and other simulations, non-linear editing, compositing, creating interactive 3D applications and grinding your iPhone into dust… wait, sorry that last one is the Blendtec Blender.

This Blender won’t make you a kick ass margarita, but it has a robust feature set similar in scope and depth to other high-end 3D software such as Softimage|XSI, Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, Lightwave and Maya. These features include advanced simulation tools such as rigid body, fluid, cloth and softbody dynamics, modifier based modeling tools, powerful character animation tools, a node based material and compositing system and Python for embedded scripting.

So now that you know what it can do, go try out some of the tutorials in the insanely long list below. We can’t wait to see your test footage in our Forum!
