Commercial & Movies built in Blender!

Open source softwares have long been undervalued for their potential, nevertheless today; the scenario seems to be changing in favor of Open source softwares that not blendlogoonly do as good job (or even better) as proprietary softwares but in a matter of no penny spent at all! One of these OS softwares is Blender, used for development of 3D graphics application. In this post we wil round-up sone the mega-projects (movies and commercials) that have used Blender!



Blender is one of the most efficient, feature-packed, powerful and awe-inspiring software with which you can create professional quality animation. Blender is cross platform, all-in-one 3D modeling and animation software suit that can be used to create computer generated images and movies! In contrast to any professional, feature intensive 3D modeling software which are priced in thousands of dollars, Blender, is an open sourcefreeware and costs you nothing at all.


 Blender has been used for the production of TV commercials in Brazil, Australia, Iceland, and Sweden. I am highlighting a few here:

Today blender is used in many mega media projects! You will be excited to note some amazing animation movies that have used the open source 3d modeling tool Blender.

titled Peach. The peach open movie was followed by the Open Game project Apricot. Apricot is a project for production of a free-game based on the universe and characters of the Peach movie (Big Buck Bunny) using free software. The game is titled Yo Frankie.
