5 years into seriously working with Blender and every now and then I'm still coming across these like extremely basic shortcuts and tricks that just completely blow me away

Ubisoft just released a plugin for blender called Mixer. It makes blender multiplayer! So if you miss the old school SL sandbox experience, just set up a room and invite random people to come greif you collaborate with you!

But can you sit on things people are working on? :p

Hey guys, remember this?

By the way - not really SL-relevant, but more for Blender users generally. If anyone had any questions about the power of 2.8's "Eevee" realtime rendering engine, this video was rendered using Eevee. In fact, aside from the real-life video and RL photos used for texture sources, this entire project was made, lighted, and even composited entirely inside Blender. It's powerful, yo; this is easily TV-show quality stuff.

Well the completed project was published today:


Make sure to watch all the way to the end of the video ^^

I wonder how useful this would be for some of the Second Life Blender classes actually.

End of an Era!


The FINAL Blender 2 build, Blender 2.93 LTS, has been released. Includes plenty of goodies that are namedropped in that showcase video (I love those things), but you can find them described in a little more detail here:


The next Blender version release, which is coming later this year, will be BLENDER 3. Along with a shift to a new (for Blender), more orthodox versioning number scheme.

This is going to be a pay course but these two video clips already tell me I NEED to buy it.


I'm not aware of any digital figure (or even just head) sculpting course that actually teaches proportions like this! Every single one I've seen has you just import a diagram or photograph to use like a blueprint to sculpt over.

The clips are sneak peeks of what sounds like a super-comprehensive course that's being published in November.

Pay beyond a cgcookie membership? Or is it part of it?

It looks like it's included if you have a CGC membership like all their courses, but you'll also be able to buy it standalone on the Blender Market. I think I read something about CGC getting rid of monthly subs and going annual, so it might actually be cheaper to just buy it if you're not already a member.

I'm a grandfathered sub... and Kent's a good teacher.

It doubles as an ad, I suppose. It's a paid course after all, you gotta convince people it's worth the price.
