Editors' Review

Blender allows you to create professional-grade animations and 3D models through a well-laid out interface equipped with a variety of tools. Whether you're experienced in digital animation or want to develop your skills, you'll find what you need in this comprehensive program.

Pros

Tons of features: This program is packed with features. There are options for 3D Unwrapping, Shading, Physics and Particles, Real Time 3D/Game Creation, and much more. Tools are also included for 2D and 3D procedural brushes, Edge Rendering, Collision Simulation, and Edge Rendering. And when you need to import something, you'll find that many 2D and 3D file formats are supported.

Nice interface and help: This app does a good job of packing a lot of features into a streamlined interface. Many frequently-used tools are included in the main screen, although they still leave plenty of room for the large viewing window. And other useful tools are quickly accessible via drop-down menus from the top of the screen. And to help even beginning users take advantage of all that the program has to offer, there are several extensive and complete Help options available.

Cons

Takes time: Even users experienced in using this type of program won't be able to jump right in and start getting results immediately. It takes a substantial time investment to really learn how to use all of the features and get the most out of the app. But if you do put in the time, you can get plenty back in return in terms of the value and convenience the program provides.

Bottom Line

Blender is excellent 3D modeling and animation software. It provides a wide range of tools, and its interface makes completing all tasks convenient and efficient. And while you do have to take the time to work through some of the supporting documentation to really learn how to use the program, it's well worth it in the end.
