It took a while, but all video tutorials on BlenderDiplom are now on YouTube. The reason: Better support for slower internet connections and chapter marks! That's right, you can click those red timecodes under each tutorial to jump right to your point of interest. What do you think about that feature?
During BlenderDay Adam from LangwasserTV recorded a few of the sessions and I conducted some interviews with interesting people. Watch the whole video report here and get a snipped of an upcoming interview with Jeroen Bakker, developer of the sped-up compositor. Some parts in English!
BlenderDiplom was mentioned in "Digital Production", a (the) German magazine on modern movie and game production. Above you can see a scan of the small review.
Once again I wrote an article for LinuxUser Germany. This time about Open Source Software used for Hollywood VFX and of course Blender. Features an interview with Ton Roosendaal, chairman der Blender Foundation on the current Open Source-Hype in Hollywood.
