Blender is a free production ready open-source 2D/3D Animation software package that is used by studios and individuals to create stunning artwork, animated films, models, packshots, VFX, 3D printing and video game development.
It is also one of the few software that offers GPU rendering (Cycles Renderer). Currently, it only supports CUDA GPU and has initial support for AMD so the render time may vary depending on the Graphics Card itself or the software may only support CPU rendering depending on the hardware support.
Apple has had us in for quite a few surprises, this year at WWDC. Their work in tightly integrating their iOS and Mac OS systems seem to be what the developers looked forward to. Like with Mavericks last year, we’re here to discuss our findings about Apple’s next Mac OS release – Yosemite.
Like we have done many times earlier, again, we’re not really authorised to try out the Developer Preview of Yosemite. But we figured, there is always a chance that we’d not be lucky enough to see a tomorrow; better live dangerously. So, my partner in crime and brother, Darryl, found a way for us to experience it right now, before you lot get to try it in the beta program. Oh! Here’s a link to sign up for it.
Brackets is free and licensed under the MIT License and maintained on GitHub. Currently, Brackets has yet to achieve version 1.0. It gets updates roughly twice a month. Brackets, at the time, is under active development and may have a lot of bugs. Right now, it is at its Sprint 38th build. It offers support for many other non-web programming languages and styling languages like CSS, SCASS, SCSS, SASS, etc. It’s pretty much better than most of its competitors.
Ghost is a new blogging platform. It has a refreshingly innovative and responsive UI – one that can clearly be seen as the future of blogging. You might want to visit Ghost’s website to know more about it. I promise, once you’ve learnt how it works, you won’t stop thinking about it. While you’re at it, do learn how it’s installed on the Raspberry Pi from our tutorial below.
