Create your own Blender with new modifers and faster rendering

This sounds really fantastic. Thankyou for taking the time to do this.

Sign me up now I really want to learn this stuff.

does this project has any relation to Blender101?

It’s only related to 101 in the sens that it allows you to add new functionality to better fit your workflow, which is also a part of 101 goal. But it’s a course. Blender 101 is a project from the BF for an easy to use Blender for children / non-professionals.

The modifier part is now fully ported to 2.8. So I can start to make the according part of the tutorial and as a student you can then freely decide if you work on 2.7x or 2.8x :slight_smile:

Sounds coool! I’m definitely interested

wow… do i have to sign in somewhere?

The beta opens tomorrow.

Definitely interested in this! I’ve found the developer documentation can be a bit tough to follow, even to just get a version from source code built and running, let alone changing anything.

How can one take part in it?

C’mon @bliblubli get this party started!

Just kidding, take your time and make sure it rocks…

ok guys,
the beta is opened with 40% off, but first limited to 10 people to get quality feedback and support to the students.
At the moment, you get

  • the build with the Cycles patches for up to 2.4x faster cuda and 1.15/1.2x faster OpenCL
  • the source code
  • the documentation with the commands, links for the tools, some nice addresses to find some treasures :slight_smile: etc.
  • The videos for the 3 first chapters for Windows, Linux and Mac.
    With this, you can already create a very customized builds without writing a line of code yourself.

You can get it here: https://gumroad.com/l/ecycle/u95l6ut

The gumroad link states that it can not be purchased at the moment. Has it allready sold 10 times and is now locked or is it not oppened yet?

Should be fixed now.

OK, got my copy and will be reporting. But probably next year :wink:

You know bliblubli, im In.

Hopefully this will be a good enough start to keep me interested and make my own personalized version of blender.(i really want to understand how the ui and the way the user does stuff in it… :slight_smile: )

i’m interested but i’m not sure of my english.
if i buy the current version, will i get the french one when available?

i disaggree on the children/non professionals part

if one could compile a simpler blender without VSE, particles, phisics, animation, texture painting and a more streamlined shader to focus on 3d printing tasks, it’d be amazing to use in a professional environment

Bought it, thank you very much for doing this. Amazing. :slight_smile:

Of course, the french and German (and someone proposed to do the italian version already) will be available for free to all customers. I think you can still do a lot without understanding all I say as all the commands you need are in a text script which is provided, so you could also simply copy paste and just follow what you see on screen. I made a lot of pictures also to better understand the theoretical part and will do more if needed.

Then you have to speak to the 101 developer group, as this is something separate still.

I agree Blender could be made simpler yet as much if not more powerful. This is already what I did on Cycles a bit. With auto tile size for example (implemented in the builds and available in the source of the course) you have less decision to take as a user, so you can spend the time you took to tweak it on artistic things and it renders actually often much faster than with the human-tweaked tile size.

As I said, this course allows you to create something like 101. So actually, you could do your vision of 101 and I’ll be happy to look at it if you release it someday.

Welcome on board :slight_smile: 3 new videos were already added. There is now enough material to make your own mix, with some links to find cool features :slight_smile:
