Surely many of you already know this program, especially the most professional of the Gnu / Linux World, for the rest, we can say that Blender will be a very important tool during the next months.
Blender is a 3D modeling and editing program that 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 gain importance and even some famous films such as Star Wars: The Phantom Menace were made with this program. Nevertheless its handling is not easy although it is changing with the latest updates.
With Blender 2.77 it is improved not only OpenGL rendering and anti-lising but also the Python libraries are updated, the storage in OpenVDB cache 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! You can find the list of all the changes.
How to install Blender on Ubuntu
Blender is a free tool that we can find in the Ubuntu repositories, but of course we will not find this latest version, for this we have to resort to an external repository. To be able to do it, 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 this it will start the installation of Blender 2.77 in our Ubuntu, with all its news and especially with the bugs of the corrected version. 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. Personally, I consider that Blender is a great option, a great program within its genre that few have managed to imitate or surpass.
