Blender 2.62 adds better Booleans, motion tracking

Friday, February 17th, 2012 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Blender 2.62 in action: a new features tour of the software from Blender Cookie.

The Blender Foundation has released Blender 2.62, its latest bimonthly update to the open-source 3D app.

Version 2.62 updates Blender’s Boolean operations, implementing the faster, more stable Carve library, and adds a new Remesh modifier for converting a mesh to uniform quads.

The motion tracking tools and Cycles render engine added in Blender 2.61 have also been updated, with the latter gaining support for render layers and passes, and multi-GPU rendering.

Collada export, the Python API and built-in game engine also receive updates.

    Thanks for mentioning the new release, but please use a decent video which has actually something to do with the release and demos a new feature of it, not such a poor logo animation…

    At the time I originally posted the story, 2.62 had been out for less than a day, so that was the only video I could find. I’ve updated with Blender Cookie’s new features tour of the software now.
