Bforartists 1.0.0

This is it. Version 1.0.0 is gold. This development cylce is finished. Many thanks for all the help and support. Thanks to the team members. Enjoy Bforartists :)

The download can as usual be found in the download section. https://www.bforartists.de/content/download

We have also as usual first the Windows binaries ready. The Mac version will most probably follow this weekend. We have unfortunately still no good news for Linux. No maintainer anymore. But you can always build it by yourself. The source code is at Github. And the advice how to compile Blender works for Bforartists in the same way.
The release notes are located here: https://www.bforartists.de/wiki/bforartistsreleasenotev100

The changes between RC1 and the full version aren’t really worth mentioning it. We just catched two last minute things.

I have still to point at Cuda in the 32 bit Windows version. GPU rendering may or may not work for you. Cuda 9 doesn’t support the outdated 32 bit architecture anymore. I have compiled the 32 Bit version with Cuda 8 now. But it throws still an error with my Nvidia 1060. So expect GPU rendering not to work in the 32 Bit version. Please upgrade to a 64 Bit Windows in this case. It is more than time!

Bforartists is a complete 3D suite to create 3D content. It offers you the full 3D art pipeline to create game graphics, prerendered movies and stills. From modeling, sculpting, texturing, rigging, animation, rendering, up to post processing. Have a look at the features page to find out more.

Bforartists stands for Be For Artists. A reminder to develop for the user, not the programmer.

Bforartists is a fork of the popluar open source 3d software Blender. With the goal to improve the UI and usability. Bforartists 1.0.0 is based at Blender version 2.79b.

    Thank you a zillion times!!
    I hope you will have time to continue Bforartists.
    Even with the changes in 2.8 , it will never be as good as Bforartists.
    They simply dont care enough for UX and all the devs suffer from Stockholm syndrome in
    regards to the interface.

    Yes, they have made lots of things better now, but will never let go things like RMB select. That’s why we will continue, and do our best 🙂
