Blob Studio is a product born from TwistedBrush Pro Studio but with a focus on creation of individual objects that you might use in other Pro Studio or other art software and with a simpler, streamlined interface. The Blob brushes allow you to model and shape your objects and then paint them with the included brushes with the results being crisp lines you might see in illustration software but without the need to mask anything. You can even continue to shape your objects after they are painted.
You can watch a short guide here.

Why would I ever install something that requires deactivating my antivirus?

If it is a false positive, it is up to the company to explain that to the A/V companies and get whitelisted.

Hello Sid B,

A false positive is a very common occurrence. If you have any doubts, you can run the installation file through virustotal.com where the files are processed by a large number of virus scanners.

Pxarra Support

Pixarra Support,

Thanks for the response. I spent 11 years reviewing software for a major newspaper company. I can count on one hand the number of false positives.

I have to ask, did you report the false positive?

As to virustotal, I've been using it for years but it isn't my--or their-- job to figure out whether a positive is false. And, again, telling users to turn off their antivirus is both reckless and wrong. Would you tell me to leave my door unlocked so it is easier to get in and out?

Sid B, please respond, did you see the alert after trying to install the file received from GAOTD or did you downloaded the original file from our website?

I run Win10/64 Pro and a lot of photographic stuff......you might find that this will help on the installation of some graphic programs - seems that Microsoft forgot to put it back in:

Download and run the installer for the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 Update 3 RC

I had no issues whatever in installing Blob Studio. Of course I suspended Kaspersky Anti-virus as usual. I wonder if some of the difficulties described in previous comments are due to minimum video requirements or indeed available RAM. Certainly Blob Studio likes to have lots of resources available,and no wonder, it is a comprehensive modeling system with lots of tools and shading capabilities.

I have always been intreaged by 3-D modeling and I view this as an excellent first tool to get into that learning curve. The layout of the workspace and available brushes are impressive and like a little brother to the big software. As a result, yes it takes a bit of learning to get the hang of using the available tools but Pixarra are to be congratulated for designing at just the right level so as to provide the tools for learning without overwhelming the user/student. Furthermore, Pixarra provide excellent online tutorials and help to facilitate the guiding of the student through the classroom called Blob Studio.

Truly impressive and worth having if producing computer graphics is of interest to you. I love it !!

I often buy the products I download here. BlobStudio was something I was thinking of buying anyway. It is good that you carried this program as it won't install on my PC - I now don't have to waste any further time & money on it!

Reply   |   Comment by Philip  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Philip,
It does and will install on anyone's PC 100% of the time if you read the readme text file.

IMPORTANT: please note that due to the Themida wrapper usage your installation might be blocked by your antivirus (AVG, Avast or Kaspersky)!

-This particular GOTD offer includes both an exe and a gcd file extension. For this reason, you need to temporarily disable your antivirus software or the download will be corrupted and won't install.
-Next, download the BlobStudio121-do38aq.zip.
Note: if you downloaded the zip file before disabling your antivirus software, then you have to delete the zip file (because it's probably corrupted now), temp. disable antivirus and then download the zip file again.
-Extract the 3 files inside the zip to an empty folder on your desktop or just the desktop itself.
-Install application by clicking on the Setup.exe file. After installation is complete, register with key in Readme.txt file
-Lastly, delete both the exe and gcd files as they are no longer needed

Is this the same version that was given away before? If so I have it already. If not, what has changed from the previous Giveaway Version?

I get: Error starting module 'Win32DPNetGame' when I try to run it. Reloaded and still get the error. Win 10.

Reply   |   Comment by Tom O.  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Tom O., they use a depretiated technology called DirectPlay that needs to be activated in optional windows features wizard that can be found from Control Panel | Programs and features | Turn Windows features on or off | Legacy Components | DirectPlay.

Settings | Apps & Features | Related Settings over on the right of window, Programs and Features | Turn Windows features on of off | Legacy Components | DirectPlay.

Hope that helps.

Downloads but when I install it says it installed but there's no program to be found.

Bonnie, Installed with anti-virus turned off?

Reply   |   Comment by Zen  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Bonnie,

Read the "Readme" file that comes in the .Zip file from Pixarra. Your AV might be blocking the Download, but the PC will still report it as having done so.... You might try temporarily disabling your AV, do the download, install, and turn your AV back on....

Thanks. Have used couple of their programs ok Windows 10 x 64 Pro onto D: drive. Only nit in install is you must be sure to use \BlobStudio or something, else it will dump contents into any higher level of the chosen folder. Most programs pre-determine a sub folder for you. Had to uninstall to remove all the scattered files & folders.
Took the reg key from GOTD readme easily. Program nicely designed. Worth a hold.

As someone else mentioned, I did need to install Direct Play when I first ran the program, but other than that, all straight forward. I have had a play with the program. It will take some time to get to grips with all of the functionality, but I did manage to create a passable mango straight off!

I have this version installed, I assume it was downloaded from here from an earlier offering but to be honest I do not know for certain. It is a very interesting program and well suited for creating object to be imported into other programs for use. I suggest that you be prepared for some trial and error learning and general features and interface learning as well. Overall it is well worth having. My OS is windows and I am using 7 home premium.

1. temprarily disable antivirus
2. running the compatability troubleshooter on setup.exe and accept its changes and then test the program
3. Needed to install Direct Play on first run on my system ... allow this or it wont run
4. enter activation key
5 . re-enable antivirus
6. Make a mushroom !

MANY THANKS ABOUT THE GOTD'S! :)

It doesn't install (Windows 8/10), I had the same problem with a previous Pixarra program given away here (TB Tree Studio), the fix that time was to download the program from the developers page and use the key from the readme file, that doesn't work this time as the version on the developers page is 2.17 and this is version 1.21. Nice video tutorial anyway, good luck to everyone else.

Tj Anderson,

Just asking:

Did you try another download at GOTD?

(Don't get that anti-virus issue anyway, never had that with programs from GOTD.)

Sounds silly, but did you try Safe Mode and get back to the Normal Mode and than try to install it?
When it can't be installed, or the file is corrupted, or the system is corrupted.

Try to contact the firm, or try to download this version else where and give the registration key a go.

There you WILL find a lot websites where you can download it.

Good Luck & Have Lots Fun! :)

Tj Anderson, Version 1.21 is still available on the Pixarra site under the download menu, located at the bottom of the listing.

Reply   |   Comment by Eric Harden  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Eric Harden, Yes it is on the Pixarra site, but the GOTD needs to be installed from the Zip file, as it includes the GOTD info for Pixarra...... Also, if you want to, you can go to the Pixarra site, and for signing up with their mailing list, you can get a Free, ver. 1.16 of Liquid Studio.
