Software News : Blender For Amiga OS4 Updated
Posted by broadblues on 2011/6/20 15:25:21 (1075 reads) News by the same author
Software News

I'm pleased to announce a new update to my port of Blender for Amiga OS4

The new update address a couple of bugs, and deals with some issues experienced when working in low memory conditions. Blender is now usable on Classic Amiga running OS4!

Download from os4depot now (Release in still in upload queue at time of posting this news item.)

Also I have added some advice for Classic users to the blender for amiga OS 4 page

Changes since the last update:


FURTHER CHANGES: (June 2011 Update)

o blender no longer scan the contents of $PATH when trying to identify the
path to the executable. This would cause annoying insert volume requesters
if blender was executed like appdir:bldyn or even just foo:bldyn
o A further fix to crashes in low resources situations. If the blender render
window cannot open then blender would crash, as it did no checks for a successful
open. It now continues to render silently without a render display window.
o rendering the "stamp" could cause a crash due a unitialised interface
o Added a Amiga style version string. Version 248.3 To indicate
blender version 2.48 amiga revision 3

@Kicko

2.5 Gui is diferent, better might be a matter of opinion, it shares a lot in common though. I wont be porting it soon. I lack the time for the moment, and don't have a personal need for it yet. 2.48 still does all I need. It has some heavy dependencies to be met too, python 3.x being one of them.

Give 2.48 a go. Once you get into to it, it's no harder than any other 3D modeler, I find it quite natural now.
