Blender 2.8, a free 3D software popular with enthusiasts and professionals alike, is currently coming our way. Here is the most important change coming with 2.8 this spring.
The biggest problem plaguing this software was its unfriendly user interface and the fact that it chose to do things differently than other software. This made it challenging for beginners to learn and difficult for users of other software to change over. However, Blender 2.8, the latest update, promises to address this issue directly.
The UI in Blender will change. It shouldn’t take long to get used to, but old habits sometimes die hard so that you might want to actually take these changes in and prepare yourself once 2.8 drops.
One of the most significant changes is the Left click select.
That’s right. As non-Blender users may be surprised to hear, prior to Blender 2.8, right-clicking was how you selected an object. From now on, left-click select will be the default option, although you can customize your keybindings if you are already used to right-clicking. The excellent thing is you will then be able to right-click to get context menus, something every other software could do.
