Blender is not a quick-and-dirty production tool. This is a full featured tool, and available under multiple operating systems, including Windows, under the GPL license.
It not only outputs film, but games as well. I think this may be its most striking feature. Most movie houses have production budgets under which the cost of software, even proprietary software, is nominal. But game production is something even an individual can do, on a shoestring. Blender is that shoestring.
Have you used Blender? Would you recommend it to others? Let me know in TalkBack.
