Big Buck Bunny

Blender: it's great!

The following ten-minute cartoon is a superb demonstration of the free open-source software 3d suite as an animation package, what it was developed to do. I've spent a couple Saturdays playing with it, and have discovered that the physics engine and Python scripting interface are exactly what I need to make working virtual prototypes of my mazes. First, I am going to use it for fly-through animations and sectional views of the mosque project, to be included in a presentation scheduled for the end of September.
