I know what most Blender-heads would say, version 2.63 has been out for a while. I have been comfortable with the workflow of 2.49, got it tweaked in a way that’s familiar, and what happens ? The folks at Blender.org decide to put their efforts into overdrive with version 2.5x and then 2.6x. I had a copy of 2.57 a played with it on and off, but now its version 2.63, (this time next year it might be up to 2.89). I figure I would give the latest version a shot (thankfully they[the Blender Illuminati] have a solid foundation in place where older blender files work well(with minimal effort) on newer versions). So I gave it a try, to do a character from scratch … the verdict…extremely polished. From the features, UI, and extremely flexible setup, 2.63 looks and feels like “top shelf” pro-grade software. And in a matter of a couple of hours, I had one more reason to make my nephew laugh.
Taking Blender 2.63a for a test drive …..sweet!
