Overview 2012

It’s been a while since I last wrote to my blog, so here’s an overview of what has happened during 2012.
Blender 3D
During 2012 I’ve gradually stepped down of many of my Blender 3D development and maintenance tasks. I used to run the build-bots for MingW64 and MSVC, but they were moved to the Blender Institute, so I could fully use my own machine again. Other work is currently more priority, so I thought it wise to move to the background, and not hold back important development, just because I didn’t have enough time to invest next to family, day job … Continue Reading

Letwory Interactive @ Assembly 2010

And here we are: Assembly 2010 Summer. Like last year I am with the Renderfarm.fi booth. Today I gave a short presentation on where Blender 2.53 is today and where it has come from.

Still we have had nice audiences for the different presentations. It was great to see the work from High Five crew of Happy Hour shortfilm and today Snowblind, with it’s use of Blender … Continue Reading

Renderfarm.fi now thus supports Blender 2.5a2, and I’m sure we’ll be supporting the imminent Blender 2.5 beta too.

All in … Continue Reading

jesterKing Crunchers

As you may know I’m active in the Renderfarm.fi project, for which I’ve been working on the uploader script. This script allows you to easily send in your work, and to follow the progress of your sessions.

I think that the Renderfarm.fi project is a very interesting project for Blender users (and during summer another renderer should be integrated – more on that in due time), since it allows users to send in their scenes that may take a long time to finish on their own machine(s). Having the growing group of rendering clients from … Continue Reading
