- Story artist
- Video editing
Easy to Use Interface
The interface is easy-to-use for novice and advanced users. Users can customize their layout, including splitting the viewport and customizing python scripting. The interface is consistent across all platforms. The software features crisp text and supports hi-dpi/retina displays. Users will be happy to know there are never any disruptive pop-up windows.
Story Art Available in 2D and 3D
The Story Art feature allows users to create 2D and 3D art in the viewport. With this feature, users can access full animation support and onion skinning. In addition, both layers and colors are available for stroke and fill techniques. And sculpted brush strokes are available for 3D objects.
Built-In Video Sequence Editor
Blender is created with a built-in video sequence editor. Here, users can perform basic actions like splicing and video cuts. More complex features like masking and color grading are also available. Various displays are available, including luma waveform, live preview, histogram displays, and chroma vector scope. The video editor allows up to 32 slots for images, audio, video, effects, scenes, and masks to be added. The software also allows audio mixing, waveform visualization, scrubbing, and syncing. Blender also added speed control, filters, keyframes, transitions, and adjustment layers to make the best videos.
One of the most popular features of Blender is sculpting. This tool allows users to sculpt digitally. All aspects of digital sculpting are included, such as exploration, environmental design, and character design. The sculpting and polygonal modeling tools can be used side by side.
Under the rendering tool, users have access to a variety of geometry shapes that make creation easier. Tools include instancing, volumes, hair curves, and meshes.
