In this Blender video tutorial you will learn how you can compile your own Blender on OSX. It covers how to use the terminal and how to checkout the latest Subversion update. It also includes how to build your own customized Splash-Screen!
Although the Wiki is really great and you can also learn how to compile Blender just by following the steps there, it might be encouraging to see how it’s done in a video. If you are not that familiar with coding and the use of the terminal then all the things that you have to do in the command-line might look intimidating first and turn you off from actually trying your hand at compiling Blender. Well, at least that’s what I felt for a long time.
But there’s no need to be afraid, it’s actually quite easy and you will always be up to date, once you learn how to update SVN and build your own Blender.
