Blender is a free and open-source software for 3D graphics design that uses C, C++, and Python languages and runs on different platforms. Recently, a big company entered the Blender Foundation Development Fund. It is AMD. Blender officially announced the news in the recommendation. AMD’s membership in the Blender Foundation is “Patron”, which will fund the Foundation to assist in the development of the Blender project.
Today AMD joined the Blender Foundation Development Fund at Patron level. We will invest it in general development, Vulkan migration and to keep AMD technologies well supported for our users. Thanks a lot! https://t.co/vFdhNcJbOR #b3d
