|Full description=Blender is the in-house software of a high quality animation studio. It has proven to be an extremely fast and versatile design instrument. Blender can be used to create TV commercials, to make technical visualizations or business graphics, to do morphing, or to design user interfaces. Developers can easily build and manage complex environments. The renderer is versatile and extremely fast, and implements all basic animation principles (curves and keys).

Blender has its own particular user interface, which is implemented entirely in OpenGL and designed with speed in mind. Python bindings are available for scripting; import/export features for popular file formats like 3D Studio and Wavefront Obj are implemented as scripts by the community. Stills, animations, models for games or other third party engines and interactive content in the form of a standalone binary and/or a web plug-in are common products of Blender use.
