  • Highlights of the Blender Conference 2016

    Here are three video recordings of presentations done at the latest Blender Conference that I think are worth watching.

  • Rendering WordWars on radiators

    TL;DR: Testing the private beta Python API from Qarnot About a month ago, while keeping an eye on the Libre Software Meeting (RMLL) in Beauvais and watching the news about WordWars spread on some blogs and magazine, I stumbled on a video presentation about open source software tools for animators and Blender 3D rendering using […]

  • Making of “Word Wars- News from the Empire”

    Sharing here my thought and tool process that brought me to create the project called “Word Wars – News from the Empire“.

  • Blender shortcuts right in your search engine

    Two months ago, I attended a community meetup in NY called Quack & Hack. The point of it was to gather people around coding to improve the DuckDuckGo search engine. If you don’t know DuckDuckGo (DDG) by now, it’s the “search engine that does not track you”. And it’s been my tool of choice when […]

  • Écrire un manuel de 200 pages en 5 jours

    C’est l’expérience que j’ai vécue en début de mois d’août, avec 13 autres personnes, enfermées dans les nouveaux locaux de F/LAT, à Bruxelles. On appelle ça un booksprint (ou un “libérathon”) dans le jargon. Pour résumer, il s’agissait d’écrire un manuel complet, en français, sur l’utilisation d’un logiciel libre, dans ce cas-ci, Blender. Et je […]

  • Blender-Brussels “lookback” workshop

    Last saturday, we had our monthly Blender BPY/BGE workshop where we explore creative coding through the use of Python in the context of Blender.

The goal was to explore the Blender video sequencer to automate the creation of video clips based on […]

  • Blender bpy/bge Brussels Workshop 2013-03-29: zoom

    Last friday was our monthly Blender workshop and the day before, my attention was attracted by this post on Reddit. Rorts was mentioning this intriguing video “Zooms From Nowhere” by Chris Timms and was wondering how to do something like that in Blender. I thought this might be a good challenge for the Blender bpy/bge […]
