Blender 3.5 arrives with many hairdressing improvements as its most outstanding novelty

Blender 3.5

I know. I know perfectly well that this famous program has nothing to do with hairdressing. Or if? Not really, but it does have to do with everything that can be added to an image, especially if it is in 3D. This afternoon, Blender Foundation announced the release of Blender 3.5, and much of the spotlight has gone to improvements that will make the treatment and movement of the hair look more realistic.

Although the project has released Blender 3.5 and Blender 3.6 is due to arrive soon, they are also preparing for the release of v4.0, scheduled for the end of this 2023. As for the News list of the version that has arrived today, and as always, it is quite extensive, but if we summarize the one of the hairdresser in one, the list shrinks. Below you have the highlights that have come along with this version.
