I was looking for a few features that just weren’t in blender, but found some patches for blender that would achieve the same resolves. I found in the blender documentation how to install patches, but it only shows how with a .diff. All the patches I am finding are a .patch format. Also, I am not sure whether I put it in as a Git patch or an SVN patch.
So like I said. these patches are being presented as .Patch files and I am hoping someone is able to explain to me how I might install them.
Let me refine this a little bit… here is the exact patch that I am trying to implement - https://developer.blender.org/T33817. I am trying to install it in blender 2.71.
