I have played around with Linux since the early 90's, so I have been a big fan of open source software for quite some time. Along with many other programs, I have also known about Blender for quite some time. However, I have always only known it as a 3D creation tool, something I am not particularly skilled at. While the early versions were sorely lacking, over the past 20 years, it has become quite a full featured and well rounded 3D creation tool. What I did not know until very recently, is that Blender also has the ability to function as a video editor! And from what I have seen, quite a robust one too! Some of you may already know this, but I figured I would make a post here to try and inform those who don't. I was doing a bit of searching the other day, and happened to run across THIS post over at Opensource.com on video editors. It is quite a fascinating read, and also provides a list of Youtube tutorials that the author used to learn video editing in Blender. So, what exactly does video that has been edited in Blender look like? I'll go one step farther and show you some video that was created entirely in Blender, including 3D creation. Caminandes 3 - TRAILER That cartoon was released in 2013 by the Blender Foundation. It was modeled, rendered, composited and edited entirely in Blender. Not bad at all for free software, heck, it is pretty damn good for any software! By the term “free” I don't just mean monetarily, it is also free of all the licensing, tracking, DRM and other BS associated with programs like Adobe's Creative Suite. 2013 Caminandes: Gran Dillama Big Buck Bunny 60fps 4K The original of that last one was posted seven years ago over on Vimeo, the updated version is of course quite a bit cleaner and crisper. There are many other videos over on their Youtube Channel, but i thought those gave a pretty good indication of what was capable. I am quite a bit late to the party on this one, but certainly better late than never! If your looking for good video editing, Blender most definitely has something to offer!
