Blender 2.5

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Sep 19, 2010.

  1. Just built the latest (pre)release Blender 2.5 from Subversion. Man, that
    looks quite different: the old “Buttons Window†is now called “Propertiesâ€,
    and has been majorly reorganized. Also those accustomed to pressing the
    spacebar to bring up the main menus (as I have been) will be presented with
    a single scrolling menu with just about every function in it, with a search
    box to narrow down the option you want.

    When I first started it up, I found the interface was very slow to redraw
    and respond to my actions. Turns out this has hit a number of people, due to
    the vagaries of graphics-card drivers. To work around it, go to the User
    Prefs window, and under the “System†tab, try one of the options other than
    “Automatic†in the Window Draw Method popup; for example, “Overlap†makes
    things a lot better for me.

    The Python scripting interface has been completely reworked: old scripts
    would import functions from the “blender†module, but that is now gone; all
    the new functionality is in the “bpy†module, including direct access to
    much of the same operations you might perform interactively, which you
    didn’t have scripting access to before.
