Yet Another Open Movie: Tears of Steel

The Blender Institute is currently on a bit of a mission to push the limits of what the software is capable of and is using the open source nature of the software as a model for these test films.

The latest release is the 12-minute short, Tears of Steel which seamlessly blends live-action with Blender-animated VFX. The notion that VFX and animation are relatives is not a new one, but Tears of Steel only blurs the line between them even further.




Sintel: A Blender Open Movie

A while back I wrote about the Tube Open Movie project and I’m happy to report that it is simply the latest in a series of similar projects. Sintel is a short film that was funded by the Blender Foundation as a showcase for the software’s capabilities. Enjoy!
