Bforartists 3.2.2 Release


Official Bforartists Thread

This is an independent fork of Blender created by volunteers with a GUI paradigm to ease some UX. With a focus on iconography, exposed toolsets and consistent organization and accessibility, we add thousands of details to vanilla Blender to try make it easier. This merges code weekly and is 100% compatible with Blender - this may be more familiar for users from Maya and Cinema4D.

You can install this along side Blender without any conflicts.

Features

  • Tabbed Toolshelf (toggeable) + Most Operators
  • Added Node Shelf in node editors
  • Quick editor switches
  • Coloured Iconography on everything
  • Improved tooltips (check the nodes!)
  • Added operators: Reset View, Manage scenes from the outliner, etc
  • Minimal Defaults for intuitive pickup coming in from other software (WER and F to focus, mouse only view navigation)
  • Customizable overlay buttons
  • Cutomizable toolbar editor
  • Consistent menu order
  • Consistent operator names
  • Re-written documentation to be about the GUI
  • Tuned defautls for discoverability
  • and all the latest from the Blender master weekly!

This is now a week old, as there is a known bug with the F3 operator search - but it contains some hotfixes from Blender and 63 new tasks from us! Current Devbuild has the fix.

Bforartists 3 Version 3.2.1 is a maintenance release. It comes with the changes from Blender 3.2.1 with the usual changes to keep Bforartists consistent and compatible with the latest from Blender.

This release also includes two new painting modes for the Bforartists Brush Panels addon for the toolshelf – select your paint brushes with one point and click. Now in Vertex, Texture Paint and Weight Paint modes (activate the addon in the Preferences).

We moved the Library Override operators up a level for easier digging.

Sometimes you just don’t want to zigzag to get there - specially with common operators.
