A total of twenty-two new nodes had been added to the Geometry Nodes editor increasing the attribute system, sampling textures, assist for quantity information, improved usablity, mesh primitives, Cycles support for attributes, and much more.
– Attribute Proximity
– Sample Texture
– Volume to Mesh
For every point within the enter geometry, this node finds the closest place on the target. Learn more.
Real-time conversion of textures – including video textures, as attributes. Study extra.
The volume to Mesh node generates a mesh on the “surface” of a volume. Study more.
NOT SO PRIMITIVE
It’s now possible to create mesh circles, cones, cubes, cylinders, grids, ico-spheres, uv-spheres, and lines without ever leaving the Geometry Nodes editor . Learn extra about Mesh Primitives.
PLUS THESE NODES
– Attribute Clamp
– Attribute Mix XYZ
– Attribute Convert
– Attribute Map Range
– Attribute Remove
– Attribute Separate XYZ
– Bounding Field
– Assortment Information
– Is Viewport
– Points to Quantity
– String Enter
Geometry Nodes means that you can create probably the most flexible modifiers. Download this file and play!
IMPROVED User Experience
Using Geometry Nodes is now much simpler because of error reporting, search, and a new approach to examine your geometry.
Find the attribute you’re looking for!
– Domain and kind are displayed for context
– Hit Enter so as to add a brand new attribute
– Supports Fuzzy Search
– Results are cached from the latest analysis for improved efficiency
“We don’t make mistakes, we have now glad accidents.”
And it’s important to know when and why they happen. You will now see a notification icon on the nodes that can’t be processed properly.
MEET YOUR NEW Finest Buddy
Ever questioned what was the precise worth for a specific attribute?
The Spreadsheet Editor is here that will help you examine your mesh, situations, or even level clouds.
That is simply the beginning. Study extra in the handbook. In the future the Spreadsheet Editor will play a key position when managing your scene.
Take a look at the person handbook to examine the brand new nodes, attributes, and more.
The neighborhood is already creating the unimaginable. Join the celebration!
For this releases’ splash, the writer Erindale went all-in and made all the thing pretty much using solely Geometry Nodes.

It has by no means been simpler to create, tweak, and develop Masks or Face sets as you sculpt.
– Mask Loops & Patterns
– Mask Textures
– Flexible Face Units
Preview patterns as you go, create loops, gradients, mix them with mesh filters for incredible results.
Apply textures to masks, draw and transform shapes for extra precision.
Edit Face Units like never before. Create and broaden from the mesh boundaries, lengthen existing sets, and combine it with the Pose brush!
MASKS OUT OF THE Box
Gone are the times of drawing masks from scratch. You can now create masks routinely by loose parts (geometry islands) or Face Units.
Mix it with Filters for final flexibility.
Switch IT UP
Splitting advanced figures into multiple objects is a fast approach to considerably improve efficiency. With a purpose to ease this workflow, there’s a new method to rapidly bounce between objects whereas in Sculpt mode.
Simply mouse over an object and hit D.
HOLD The road Artwork
Robotically generated Grease Pencil strains around your objects.
The road Art modifier generates stylized strains in your scene, collections, or particular person objects. Download this demo file. Study more in the manual.
LINE Artwork OUT In the WILD
OMG blender 2.93’s new feature: Line Artwork Modifier behaves loads like Freestyle… Nice things to come for blender npr #bnpr pic.twitter.com/8uGSPXN1me That is a lovely model called Abby-Chan made by @rukikuri. I tweaked a bit of the modifier and cleaned up keyframes as normal with grease pencil.
LineArt very niubility！GP不支持景深就有点拖后腿了！😂😚 pic.twitter.com/0XTeMNh7lc
New Blender 2.Ninety three Line Art Modifier

Download Grease Pencil Demo Files
The Interpolate operator is now a full-fledged instrument!
Rewritten from scratch for a more flexible workflow.
Interpolation now helps multiframe modifying to work sooner than ever. Be taught more.
IN AND OUT
– Import SVG recordsdata as Grease Pencil objects.
– Export Grease Pencil objects as vectors to use in Inkscape and other fashionable vector-primarily based applications. Great for storyboards!
Reference for SVG and PDF
– PDF export helps animation, creating one page per keyframe.
WHAT A FILLING
Meet the brand new Fill software. It’s sooner, extra exact, and smarter.
– Stroke Extension
– Multiframe Fill
Create momentary closing strokes on the fly. Adjuste the strokes dynamically using the scroll-wheel or Page Up/Down.
Let Blender do the work. Now you can fill a number of similar frames with one click.
– Higher Workflow with Autokey
– New Multiframe Show
– Dopesheet context menu re-organized
– Opacity for Annotations
– New Layer remodel parameters
– Multiframe support in Draw mode
– Noise Offset parameter in Noise Modifier
– Take away limitation to make use of only one Lattice modifier
MEETS THE EEYEE
The brand new Eevee seems so good chances are you’ll wish to re-render all of your tasks.
Volumetrics are now sooner, more stable, help gentle shadows and space lights.
Management how a lot the diffuse, specular, and quantity parts will contribute to the lighting.
All space shapes are actually supported too!
The new Depth of Area handles close-ups and outlines much better.
VOLUMES + SHADOWS
Blender 2.Ninety three puts the quantity back in Volumetrics.
Volume shaders in Eevee now help Space Lights and Delicate Shadows.
– Lowered Flicker on Volumes
– Ambient Occlusion Variable Distance
– Glass BSDF Improvements
– Decreased Gentle-leaking
– Regular Maps Fixes
– Subsurface Scattering Improvements
– Lowered Noise in Display screen-space Raytracing
– Fresnel on Glossy Surfaces closer to Cycles
– Higher Reflection Cubemaps Probes
Obtain Eevee Demo Information
PERSISTENCE Is key
…to render quicker! Cycles can now keep your data around throughout re-renders and animations with the brand new Persistent Information setting, bringing render times down considerably. Read extra.
– Area Light Unfold
– Nicer Subsurface Scattering
Simulate the impact of a honeycomb or grid positioned in entrance of a softbox by adjusting the Spread Angle setting.
Random Walk subsurface scattering now uses Dwivedi guiding to scale back noise.
SEE Extra, RENDER Less
Intel Open Image Denoise has been upgraded to v1.3, resulting in sharper particulars using less samples.
– Entry Geometry Node Attributes
– OpenColorIO 2.Zero
– New Quick GI Approximation Panel Settings
HOLD ONTO THIS ONE
Blender 2.93 is a protracted-term launch, with two years of help.
Ideally suited for lengthy projects. Learn extra.
