Apt-Get Blender 2.8

Wed Aug 28, 2019 6:24 pm

Hello Everybody

Really cool that with a Pi4 you can run Blender at a reasonable frame rate - is there any word when 2.8 will be available via apt-get install - I'm pretty much so switched over to 2.8 that 2.79 feels difficult to use now :(

Any info much appreciated :)

You will have to ask the Debian packagers as Raspbian simply follows the Debian repos.
It will most likely not happen until the successor of Buster is released.

Hmm - after a bit more digging it may be a compatibility issue as Blender 2.8 requires OpenGL 3.3 and RPi 4 only supports OpenGL ES 3.0 - is this something that is likely to change with updates or is this a hardware limit do you think?

Thanks,
