Behind Every Great Artist, A ToolmakerBehind every great artist, there is a toolmaker helping them take their craft even further. Singers have microphone techs and painters have brush makers.
In the 3D art and animation world, that toolsmith goes by titles such as "technical artist" or "technical director". These are the people who build workable character rigs that make beautiful and expressive movement easy to animate. They also use scripting languages to build tools for doing specialized tasks or automation of the repetitive ones.
For ArtistsBlender Addons exists to create and enhance the tools of the 3D artist. More specifically, it focuses on development and extension of the Blender animation software using the Python programming language. The addons you'll find here will speed up your workflow and potentially save your project hundreds of hours.
For DevelopersIf you are a developer desiring to learn how to build your own script, there's something for you as well. The tutorials you find here will help you get up to speed quickly with the fundamentals of Python scripting for Blender. Since the addons are open source under the GNU Public License, you have the full source code available to you to study and learn from.
Whether you are an artist seeking new tools or a programmer wanting to create one, we all share the common goal to create beautiful works for yourself, your client, or even the world.
So WELCOME! I hope you like what you see here.
