Blender 3.3 LTS ships

Wednesday, September 7th, 2022 | Posted by Jim Thacker

The Blender Foundation has released Blender 3.3, the latest version of the open-source 3D software.

Key changes include a much-anticipated new hair grooming system, new UV unwrapping nodes, integration of the Grease Pencil 2D animation toolset with the Dopesheet and Timeline, and support for Intel Arc GPUs.

The update is the latest Long-Term Support (LTS) release, and will receive critical fixes for two years.


Major changes to hair grooming, UV unwrapping, Grease Pencil and GPU rendering
Key features in the release include a new curve-based hair grooming system and UV unwrapping workflows, both powered by the Blender’s steadily evolving Geometry Nodes system.

Blender 3.3 also features a significant update to Grease Pencil, the software’s 2D animation system, with Grease Pencil keyframes now visible in the Dopesheet and Timeline.

In addition, Blender becomes one of the first DCC applications to officially support Intel’s new Arc GPUs, and introduces support for GPU rendering on AMD Vega-generation GPUs on Linux as well as Windows.

The release also features updates to many of Blender’s core toolsets, including 3D modeling, digital sculpting, motion tracking and video editing, and extends support for USD workflows.

We’ll be updating this story with more details on the new features shortly, so check back for updates.

System requirements
Blender 3.3 is available for Windows 8.1+, macOS 10.13+ and Linux. It’s a free download.
