Surely many of you already know this program, especially the most professional in the GNU / Linux World, for the rest, we can say that Blender will be a very important tool over the next few months.
Blender is a 3D modeling and editing program which not only allows us to create 3D images but also allows us to edit 3D video or create models for images, videos, etc … Its development takes years, development that has made Blender become important and all some famous movies like Star Wars: The Phantom Menace were made with this program. However its handling is not easy although it is changing with the latest updates.
With Blender 2.77 it improves not only OpenGL rendering and anti-lising but in addition the Python libraries are updated, the storage in is improved cau OpenVDB and the list of add-ons is updated as well as new add-ons that appear. The list of news is wide and varied, for the most curious, here they can find the list of all changes.
How to install Blender on Ubuntu
Blender is a free tool which we can find in the Ubuntu repositories, but of course we will not find this latest version, for this we must use an external repository. In order to do this, we open a terminal and write the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thomas-schiex/blender sudo apt-get update && upgrade sudo apt-get install blender
After that it will start installing Blender 2.77 on our Ubuntu, With all its new features and especially with the bugs of the version fixed. Blender is a great 3D animation program, a professional program that serves as a great tool for those with professional aspirations who cannot afford proprietary and professional editing software. I personally consider Blender to be a great choice, a great program within its genre that few have managed to imitate or surpass.
