Blender Guru walks through some of the milestone features for Blender 2.8 and why it is such a big deal.

The buzz behind Blender lately is incredible. Blender 2.8 was in Beta for a while but recently released to the world. But what makes Blender 2.8 such a big deal? Blender Guru’s Andrew Price offers some context along with some insights into some of Blender’s most significant improvements and features.
