Blender is a well-regarded open-source 3D graphics application by the Blender Foundation which has been used in a number of professional productions.

In development since 1998, the app can usually be downloaded from, but it appears it has now made its way to the Microsoft Store.

The app has been posted by the “Blender Foundation“, but it is not clear if this is the real entity or not. A recent 3rd party store listing of Google Photos was found to have an ad clicker malware attachment, meaning it pays to be somewhat paranoid.

The description of the app notes:

  • Powerful unbiased render engine that offers stunning ultra-realistic rendering.
  • An array of modeling tools make creating, transforming, sculpting and editing your models a breeze.
  • Whether you need a crumbling building, rain, fire, smoke, fluid, cloth or full on destruction, Blender delivers great looking results.
  • From camera & object motion tracking to masking and compositing. With Blender you can “fix it in post”.
  • From simple keyframing to high-end performance, Blender allows artists to turn their still characters into impressive animations.
  • Full list of features on

We have emailed the Blender Foundation to ask for verification, but in the meantime the app can be seen in the Store here.

Update:  Pablo Vazquez, an Artist at Blender Institute, has confirmed that the app is indeed legitimate, which is great news.
