I know this is old news, but I like to rant on anyway!  With Blender, you don’t really have to pay for super, super expensive 3D animation software to be able to create great 3D animated art works and films.  If you don’t believe me, all you have to do is just take a glimpse at various snapshots of famous works by various companies in the short film clip right after the break.  The snapshots of various beautifully crafted 3D artworks and films were essentially, carefully pieced together in a short film clip to show how far a free but powerful 3D animation software known as Blender has progressed.  Watching the film clip, one would have thought that the works within might have been created by some super expensive 3D animation software.  You can check out this very film clip right after the break.

Convinced?  If so, you might have wondering why on earth people are still paying for super expensive 3D animation software, right?  Well, I think it’s depending on how one perceives his or her favorite brand.  Actually, not to put it so blandly, it’s probably more about how one would be able to use a specific 3D animation software in the most effective and efficient manner.  One example among many would be to create a short 3D animation work for an advertisement film clip in a very short period of timeframe but yet the quality of the work must not feel rush.

So, perhaps we cannot really compare one superb 3D animation software against another just as superb.  Nonetheless, we can always look at what available special features that are uniquely belong to a specific 3D animation software and make a determination on why one should go learn, buy, and use such a specific 3D animation software.  Luckily, Blender provides enough amazing features that are capable in allowing so many people to take up Blender and create great 3D artworks and animated films.  Best of all, Blender is free of charge.  What do you think of Blender?

Personal note:  I too might have to take up Blender when I have more spare time.  By saying this, I mean I want to learn how to use Blender soon enough.  Obviously, the video above has stimulated my ambition in exaggerating my imagination in 3D.
