Blender 3D makes it possible for you to perform a wide range of
tasks in one place. When entering the software for the first time, it can be
overwhelming to understand the basic concepts and features. However, with
a bit of motivation and an official tutorial, it is possible to become familiar
with Blender3D after several hours of practice.



The most prominent artists do not create masterpieces by
pressing a magic button or just manipulating brushes. Still, learning and
practicing topics such as composition, lighting, animation principles, etc.,
will make a perfect design. After all, it's a tool, and you have to learn it.



Blender 3D software has additional technical complexity and jargon. Terms
like UV maps, materials, shaders, meshes, and subdivisions are the means of the
digital artist, and understanding them in general terms will help you use
Blender and get the most out of it.

  • It is a totally free and open-source platform. Made for beginner animators.
  • The interactive game features like collision detection, dynamic re-enactments, and logic.
  • Blender accepts graphic formats such as TGA, JPG, IRIS, HDRI, or TIFF. It can also read Inventor files.
  • Integrated 3D game engine with a logic brick system. For more control, Python programming is used.
  • It includes Inverse Kinematics, Grid Strains, Load Vertices, and Static and Dynamic Particles.
  • Tough to learn. Beginners may be overwhelmed by its jargons full of shortcut keys. It has a lot of features to learn.
  • It slows in an AMD processor with 4GB RAM.
  • I can't find more cons about Blender, but new users may [be] confuse[d] due to its tricky layout.
Blender
is one of the best software focused mainly on modeling, lighting control,
rendering, animation, and 3D graphics. This software is completely free and
open-source, and it is more than at the level of other similar alternatives
within the professional field. Some movies such as Coffee
Run (2020), Spring (2019), and movie studios (like Marvel)
have used it to animate and process their films and effects. The only issue is that it slows down the PC sometimes.

We use Blender for the 3D models that we then turn into mockups. Blender is great because it allows us to get great quality lighting and textures without having to pay anything. Blender is truly a high-quality, easy-to-use 3D modeling and rendering software and the entire office picked it up quickly because of it.
  • 3D modeling
  • 3D animation
  • Live preview
  • Better output settings
  • More add-ons
  • Simplified render settings
Blender is an excellent program for anyone looking to learn 3D modeling or even animation. Blender not only makes learning how to do 3D modeling easier, but it is also absolutely free. You will not find a better program for your 3D workflow than Blender, especially not a program that is also for free.

We use Blender for product renders when we want to create something surreal but realistic. We currently use Blender in our creative department, no business problems. We LOVE Blender
  • Quick export renders using Eevee
  • Super realistic renders when adding light or when objects are created to match the products
  • Very fast moving objects around and applying modifiers
  • Honestly Blender makes improvements with software updates weekly if not monthly and I love that
I always recommend Blender. Not only its easy to use and the return on investment is fast and cheap since the software is free and the community is super great and helpful. I always sell Blender to other designers as if I work for Blender
