From VfD, I've redirected this article here. Please check if this information is correct.—Eloquence (comment added in December 2003)


The above two are the documentation of blender, is it ok to add them to link section? (Because in the blender program there is a link linking to these pages)

Logo usage[edit]

I have removed the 'Blender icon' (Blender.png) image from this page. It is not the Blender icon or logo, and looks like it has been made by a third party. Unfortunately there's no logo pages on the blender website (there will be with the new site), but there's a brief history of the logo here, with some 'unofficial' usage guidelines: --Mattebb 03:36, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I have never seen the logo in the article on the Blender website or in any official documentation. --adbabypenguin

Going open source[edit]

There is no direct proof of correlation between Blender going open source and software lowering prices. that is right

(this message is defunct considering Blender is no longer available commercially. Ton Roosendal's Company NaN went bankrupt, and with some luck was able to convince the Angel Investor that funded his startup to allow him to release the sources to the world. Blender's development continues as a result of the sale Blender branded Merchandise and Contributions). -- —Kiernan 05:04, 28 July 2005 (MST)

ATI issues[edit]

Would the issue with ATI graphics cards be notable? I know that was issue keeping me from running Blender for a while until I found a workaround (AFAIK, there's been no official fix, though I haven't kept up in the last three months), and I seem to recall it was specifically addressed as a large problem on the site.

I think this should be mentioned as well. This is a major problem with Blender (actually, it's more of a problem with ATI). I've been using a work around that leaves support for about 10000 polygons before getting unworkable lag (this is on a 128MB graphics card). I can run Blender faster on a 32 MB card that isn't an ATI. Hopefully the OpenGL problems in ATI will be fixed. -Alden

Create a new category?[edit]

What if we created a new category for Blender, along with articles on several projects derived from Blender such as the Blender Artists Forums (website:, among the most popular forums for Blender), Blenderart Magazine (website:, a free, downloadable magazine with each issue handling a particular area in 3D development) and Blendernation (website:, a site with articles and new on Blender and all surrounding it)?

That would hold articles such as the one on Elephants Dream.

Blender is significant enough to deserve it's own category.

As previously mentioned, Suzanne is indeed not significant enough to have her own article so I agree that we should merge that article with the one on Blender (software).
