Získání podpory: komunita Blenderu

Je volně dostupná od začátku, i když byl ještě kód uzavřený, a hodně pomohla při přijmutí Blenderu. Velká, stabilní a aktivní uživatelská komunita se kolem Blenderu shromažďuje od roku 1998.

Komunita se úkázala jako klíčová koncem léta roku 2002, když se stal z Blenderu Open Source a přešel pod licenci GNU GPL.

Komunita je nyní rozdělena mezi dva široce se překrývající weby:

Blender-foundation-logo.jpg

Vývojová komunita soustředěná kolem webu Blender Foundation. Zde najdete domácí stránky vývojových projektů, funkční a dokumentační fóra, repozitář CVS se zdrojovými kódy Blenderu, všechny zdroje dokumentace a tematikou podobná veřejná diskusní fóra. Vývojáři, autoři skriptů Pythonu, pisatelé dokumentace a vůbec zde můžete najít obecně kohokoli, kdo pomáhá při vývoji Blenderu.

Blender-artists-logo.jpg

Uživatelská komunita soustředěná kolem nezávislých stránek BlenderArtists. Zde tvůrci v Blenderu, programátoři her, nadšenci pro Blender mají své výtvory, získávají k nim odezvy a získávají lepší pohled na funcionalitu Blenderu. Stejně tak je možné zde najít úvody k Blenderu a znalostní bázi.

These two websites are not the only Blender resources. The Worldwide community has created a lot of independent sites, in local languages or devoted to specialized topics. A constantly updated listing of Blender resources can be found at the above mentioned sites.

IRC chat channels

For immediate online feedback there are three IRC chat channels permanently open on irc.freenode.net. You can join these with your favorite IRC client :

  • #blenderchat for general discussion of blender;
  • #blenderqa for asking questions on Blender usage;
  • #gameblender for discussion on issues related to game creation with Blenders included game engine.

For developers there is also :

  • #blendercoders for developers to ask questions and discuss development issues, as well as a meeting each Sunday at 4 pm Netherlands time;
  • #blenderpython for discussion of the python API and script development;
  • #blenderwiki for questions related to editing the wiki

Who uses Blender?

New releases of Blender are downloaded by more than a million people around the world just in the first 10 days of release. This figure spans all platforms (Windows, Linux, and MacOS) and does not include redistribution, which is fully authorized and unrestricted. We estimate there are in excess of two million users. This manual is written to serve the wide array of talented people that use Blender:

  • Hobbyist/Student that just wants to explore the world of computer graphics (CG) and 3D animation
  • 2-D artist that produces single image art/posters or enhances single images as an image post-processing lab
  • 2-D artist or team that produces cartoon/caricature animations for television commercials or shorts (such as “The Magic of Amelia”)
  • 3-D artist that works alone or with another person to produce short CG animations, possibly featuring some live action (such as "Suburban Plight").
  • 3-D team that produces an animated (100% CG) movie (such as "Elephant's Dream", "Plumiferos", "Big Buck Bunny").
  • 3-D team that works together to produce live action movies that include some CG.

A wide range of age groups, from teenagers to oldsters use Blender, and the user community is fairly evenly divided between novice and professional graphic artists; those occasional users as well as commercial houses. We can divide the 2-D and 3-D teams that produce movies and animations further into individual job categories. Those that use Blender include:

  • Director - Defines what each Scene should contain, and the action (animation) that needs to occur within that scene. Defines shots (camera takes) within that scene.
  • Modeler - Makes a virtual reality. Specialties include Character, Prop and Landscapes/Stage modelers
  • Cameraman, Director of Photography (DP): sets up the camera and its motion, shoots the live action, renders the output frames.
  • Material Painter - paints the set, the actors, and anything that moves. If it doesn't move, they paint it anyway.
  • Animation and Rigging - makes things hop about using armatures
  • Lighting and Color Specialist - Lights the stage and sets, adjusts colors to look good in the light, adds dust and dirt to materials, scenes, and textures.
  • Special Purpose talent - Fluids, Motion Capture, Cloth, dust, dirt, fire, explosions, you know, the fun stuff
  • Editor - takes all the raw footage from the DP and sequences it into an enjoyable movie. Cuts out unnecessary stuff.
