creating a custom linux image with blender 2.79b RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone! 

    I am exploring the possibilities of distributed rendering on azure with batch explorer.

    I loved the fact that out of the box you get a lot of tools for 3d rendering, even specifically for blender. However I am having some trouble setting it up for my needs.

    On batch explorer the blender gallery template is not up to date. I tried to render something and I was getting black geometry. After some troubleshooting I understood it was because of the principled shader that has only been added in 2.79. If I don't use the principled shader all is good, so I believe the version of blender in the template is outdated. 

    For this reason I am trying to find a way to create a custom linux build with blender 2.79b, but I got stuck. I am a bit lost with all the guides, tutorials and so on. 

    It would be great if someone could point me in the right direction for what I actually need to do.

    Thank you very much for any help in advance!

  • Are you looking for assistance with actually setting up Blender in a Azure VM or the creating a custom image part?
