Sometimes we need to open old Blend files and if the textures are not packed and we moved the textures from their original location, we may find out that our scene will display in pink when we try to render it. Pink surfaces means that Blender could not find the texture file. In most cases, you can go to file -> external data -> find missing files and browse for the location to retrieve them. Blender will search the folder you select and its subfolders to find the missing textures by file name. In this article, we will find the cause of the pink Blender file and how to fix it.

Blender is one of the go-to open-source software choices for animation. Surprisingly, it doesn’t take much to get started on creating simple character animations. Once you have a final 3D character model, you can bring it to life with the software’s numerous animation features and tools. For example, Blender’s rigging tools will help you to achieve the desired movements for your character. Poses can also be added and manipulated with the software’s pose editing features. In this article, we’ll go over how to copy animation data from one object to another in Blender.

There are many 3D modeling software programs available, many are good and are doing their jobs quite well, but they all come with a hefty price tag and high subscription fees. There is no need to pay heavy subscription fees when you have a free and powerful 3D creation tool at your fingertips, known as a Blender. Blender is a popular and open-source 3D creation software that can be used in 3D printer designs. There are many times in Blender where we will need to rotate and flip textures. In Blog's Today, we will explore "Rotating and flipping textures in Blender".

You may have come across a scenario where you just want to point a camera to an object or a specific area in your scene to get an idea of how it will look in the final render. Other 3D packages usually have a camera setting that allows us to “point at” an object. This can be either part of a scene or a null object which doesn’t show up but can be animated. The idea behind this is that no matter where you move the camera, it will always frame your object of choice. What’s the most painless hasslefree way to do this in Blender? In Blog's Today, we definitely have the answer.

When rendering a mesh with smooth shading enabled, you may notice a dark region or shadow on some faces. Smooth shading on a mesh with n-gons produces a more notable appearance, with the n-gons going black when rendered. N-gons is a face or polygon that is made up of five or more sides or edges connected by five or more vertices. Anything over a quad (4 sides) is considered an n-gon. With artists when they're rendering, there is definitely a case where some faces appear dark on a mesh in Blender. In Blog's Today, we will explore how to fix faces appearing dark on a mesh in Blender with iRender.

Through many years of improvement and updates, Act-3D has released a dozen versions of Lumion. There are many improvements and developments in the new version Lumion 12, and latest Lumion 12.3. You can take this chance to upgrade and migrate your work. As a 3D rendering program, Lumion is different from other CAD software as it relies primarily on having an excellent graphics card. This is especially important for Lumion’s high-end features. Lumion also requires a computer with a fast graphics card with plenty of memory, as well as an internet connection. To make rendering simpler and easier, we will need to understand the system requirements first. In Blog's Today, we will explore "System Requirements for Lumion 12.3".

In Blender, you’ll often find that you can zoom in to a point but then can’t zoom any further, even if there’s plenty of room to zoom to the meshes on the scene. Is there anything you can do to zoom in further if you can’t zoom in as far as you’d like? Before we get into how to fix it, let’s look at why zoom stops at a certain point in our Blog's Today.
