Blender is an open-source application that allows you to create a wide range of 2D and 3D models. It encloses professional modeling, texturing, lighting, animation and video post-processing tools.

Expert-oriented GUI, yet comprehensive documentation

Blender is more oriented towards advanced users, and the seemingly complex user interface is proof of that. Fortunately, this software comes with a well-structured user manual and tutorials.

Plus, because Blender is open-source, there is a vast online community that can help you get familiarized with it. If you are a curious amateur interested in 3D graphic editing, you can easily lose yourself in the documentation.

Tools to take advantage of at your fingertips

One of the most important aspects of Blender is the fact that it lets you view all the tools and features, without making you drag anything around. As a result, you can add modifiers (e.g. array, boolean, edge split, mask, mirror, multi-resolution, lattice, mesh deform, smooth, wave, collision, explode, smoke), render an image, undo and redo your actions, take a screenshot or screencast.

Additionally, you can customize themes in the settings menu or by modifying the script in Python, yet also use the grease pencil, UV unwrapping, texture painting, vertex paint, halos, shading, physics, a game logic editor, rigging (armatures, skinning, posing), world and ambient effects, and many more.

Performance and conclusion

We were not able to find any errors or bugs in this program; however, we were able to tell that it uses a high amount of CPU and system memory, which is normal when you consider its level of complexity.

To sum up, if you want to get a first-hand look at a professional 3D graphic editor, give Blender a shot. Power users, with vast knowledge of graphic editing, are certainly at an advantage. If you are interested in bypassing the installation process, you should know a portable edition is available, called Blender Portable
