Heya folks. I’m trying to get back into programming again. It has become pretty clear to me that the career I thought I wanted I didn’t really want. So I will be writing more programs now.
The last GUI program I wrote was FFFront, a GUI frontend for FFmpeg. It was written in Microsoft Visual Studio C#, which is incredibly easy to program with. This time thought, I used Code::Blocks and wxWidgets. wxWidgets+wxSmith proved to be just as easy to use, and I don’t plan on going back to VS any time soon.
Anyway, here is the program. It’s an easy to use GUI front-end for Blender’s console commands. Blender Commander was written to make it easier for one to render their projects on multiple computers. You could copy your projects and the program on all of your systems, and provided Blender was installed, span the project between them. For example, you could have computer one render frames 1 to 1000, and computer two render frames 1001 to 2000, and so on. BC makes this easier by putting a GUI over the console command arguments you would normally want to use, and with BC, you don’t have to use the Blender interface if you don’t know how to use the console arguments. This way, you can reap the benefits of running from the command line with the ease of a simple GUI interface.
