Install Blender 2.7.0 in Ubuntu 14.04, Linux Mint 17

Blender is a free and open source 3D animation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. Advanced users employ Blender’s API for Python scripting to customize the application and write specialized tools; often these are included in Blender’s future releases.

Blender is well suited to individuals and small studios who benefit from its unified pipeline and responsive development process. Examples from many Blender-based projects are available in the showcase.


  • Include initial support for volumetrics in Cycles, and faster rendering of hair and textures
  • The motion tracker now supports weighted tracks and has improved planar tracking
  • For mesh modeling there are new Laplacian deform and wireframe modifiers, along with more control in the bevel tool
  • The game engine now supports object levels of detail
  • The first results from the new user interface project are also in this release, with dozens of changes to make the interface more consistent and powerful
  • This is also the first release of the multithreaded dependency graph, which makes modifier and constraint evaluation faster in scenes with multiple objects
