[Resources] Blender 3.1 released 🥳



Hey Reader,

Zach here with another round of useful and inspiring CG and Blender related resources.

Blender 3.1 Stable Released

That was somewhat unexpected. On Wednesday, the new stable version of Blender 3.1 was released. In the video above, you get a brief overview on what is new and improved.

This time it feels that there was no "big new feature" released, but rather many small additions and improvements. I especially like the GPU accelerated Subsurf Modifier.

Check out all the new stuff + download here.


World Creator - Shortfilm "I AM"

World Creator is a commercial tool to generate realistic terrain and landscapes. Their latest promotional short film "I AM" is super impressive, as watching some nature documentary, but everything you see is actually CG.

BTW. if you want to learn how to create landscapes with only free tools, check out our Master 3D Environments in Blender course.

Dynamic Fence using Geometry Nodes (Blender Tutorial)

Martin Klekner just published our first Geometry Nodes tutorial. There he shows how to connect fence assets, make them adapt to the underlying terrain and dynamically change the size of the nearby assets. Enjoy!

"Snow" - Free Blender Rig

Blender Studio just released another professional character rig for Blender, called "Snow". The video above also shows him in action, and here you can get more behind the scenes info.

Download the rig here

That's it for this week, now enjoy your weekend and stay creative!
