If you have had your eyes open you might have noticed that Blender is really becoming a name to count on. Blender is becoming so powerful and flexible that it's competing with Maya, 3D Studio Max and Zbrush. It's not there yet, but not far from it. Considering you pay tens of thousands of dollars to setup a rendering farm for Maya, and not a single cent for Blender, it's worth taking a look at. Recently an entire movie was made in Blender, nothing unique about that, but this movie is the first of it's kind: it's open source itself.



Elephants Dream is a movie that demonstrates the power behind Blender and the entire project has been documented and recorded, discussed and now finally released for the public. Take a look at www.elephantsdream.org for the official website and take a look at the movie itself below:

Since everything in, and about, the project is open source, you can download all the models, riggings and textures they used for your own use.

Wow I had never found this movie, but found a vid of the ppl who made it on youtube. It took them 7 months to produce. They planned on getting started a year before, but didnt get started as soon as they hoped. They got it done 2 weeks before the 2007 Blender Conference.

Speaking of the power sitting curled up within Blender, take a look at this physics test, using the Blender engine.
