Binary releases use a heavily stripped down Blender to provide maximum compatibility. If you require features that are disabled in the binary release please check out the sourcecode from github
and build it exactly as you would build a normal blender version.
Blensor crashing at startup?
If Blensor crashes at startup it is an incompatibility in the startup file. This issue is already fixed in trunk but still apllies for the binary releases prior to 1.17.
To fix it just download the original Blender (it must be Version 2.72) and save a default startup file (File -> Save Startup File or alternativey Ctrl+U)
The official blensor repository can be found here
git clone https://github.com/mgschwan/blensor.git
If you are going to build blensor yourself please follow the instructions on how to build Blender http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Doc/Building_Blender and make sure to disable Cycles
in your build. You also need the python numpy
library in order for Blensor to work.
