- GPU rendering for Macs can finally become a reality
Blender, the popular open source 3D creation tool has announced that Apple has joined the Blender Development Fund as a patron member to help support continued development for the 3D creation tool.
Alongside Apple's contribution to the development fund, Apple is also going to provide engineering expertise and additional resources to Blender to better help with their border development community and to help support Blender artists and developers.
Blender CEO Ton Roosendaal said in an announcement on twitter that MacOS will now have full support for Blender. Blender has never had full support for macOS it's always only been partial support with CPU rendering being the only option, but with apple finally becoming part of the Blender development fund, GPU rendering will finally be coming to macs in the near future.
