The default Splash screens are cool, but I'd like to add some of my own work to remind me of how awesome I am (no, not really).

enter image description here

Is it possible to customize/change the splash screen?

You have to build this with Blender.

It is located at /blender/release/datafiles/splash.png(old svn link) (new git link).

Just replace1 this file with a similar one.

  • 1Here is a link to the entry on the wiki on how to correctly change it.
  • You can grab an old template here which should still work and size your image accordingly (src). The template is also in the same directory as splash_template.xcf
  • BlenderCookie has a tutorial on building Blender (download from archives) in which the author changes the splash screen. (He uses mac but the majority of process can be done pretty much the same way for other platforms)

  • $\begingroup$ This is cool! I have been wondering if you could do this. $\endgroup$ – Nate_Sycro27 Dec 29 '19 at 19:59
  • $\begingroup$ @Nate_Sycro27 Yep and now that blender is super easy to build you can literally download some tools and type a few commands and that's it. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Dec 30 '19 at 0:32

You can do that with a custom build of blender.

The image is located in the source at: /blender/blender/release/datafiles/splash.png

If you're interested here's a link on how to build blender from source: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Doc/Building_Blender

If your on Mac, CGCookie has a tutorial (archive) on how to build blender with custom splash screen.
