Hi Everyone, in this months 3D world magazine, amongst the many great tutorials is my quick one on how to use a deformer to make a simple proxy mesh drive a more complex one, which has tons of uses for still posing and obviously animation. The new issue is out globally on the iPad and in the UK in the good old traditional paper format
In this month's 3D World you can read my review of Colorway the amazing new application from The Foundry, which enables you to iterate colour and image changes on existing scenes without the need to re-renader.
Also there is a quick tutorial which I did to show how sharing channels in MARI can give you amazing textures quickly and efficiently.
As well as the us usual selection of amazing features (with a big one the new release of ZBrush) and a comprehensive range of tutorials there are the results of the 3D World CG Awards, which I was delighted to be a judge on this year.
Hi everyone, my top 5 picks for 3D tracking software can now be found on Creativbloq.com. Tracking does seem like a chore, but these applications can really help you get the most when integrating your CG into live action plates!
Hi everyone, its the end of the month, and that means it is time for the latest issue of 3D World. This month's issue looks in depth at Animation setups, and I am delighted to announce it contains my first (small) NUKE tutorial which deals with how to use mattes created form 3D applications to mask your renders.
After a year of looking at the kind of work that I have been doing, I am very excited at what NUKE (and ultimately NUKE STUDIO) will bring in terms of workflow improvements, new opportunities and hopefully less time watching files import.
FInal shot of the series, and appropriately enough we finish with another shot of the amazing sculpture.
Look at that car - it is truly beautiful!
John Surtees - the man is a legend
Today - another action shot from the X100s, this time from the rallying stage with this amazing Chrysler Avenger.
The only shot from the OMD which made it into the list,(mmmm Panasonic GH4, yes your in my thoughts) but still it is a goody The Red Arrows were amazing and gave us a good 30 mins of thrills!
I adored this sculpture which was poised from Goodwood Hall, and we got there at exactly the right time of day!
So yesterday I went to the festival of Speed at Goodwood for the first time, loved it. Naturally I and my cameras handy (gawd bless the FUJI X100S, surprisingly useful at sports shots if you get close enough). I am going to post (what I think) are the 7 best shots from my day over the next week. If you want to buy a print, please let me know.
Well that was fun!
I had a brilliant time on Thursday at The Foundry's HQ in soho, discussing the 'CREATION COLLECTIVE' as part of the first 'Foundry Session', where the Foundry get artists to detail how we use their products, specifically I was talking about how I use MODO and MARI. The second half of the presentation was by Boyo from the Post Office who detailed their amazing NUKE workflow as part of the 'PRODUCTION COLLECTIVE', which has made me seriously realise (and after some tinkering at the weekend) that its time to step up to NUKE.
I would also like to thank Becks and Jordan from the Foundry for making sure that Boyo and I were looked after, and a special thanks to our gracious host Matt Plec who helped make sure nobody got stuck in a quad poly loop:D
Hey everyone you can read what I think about the new modo 801 on CreativBloq.com or in the new issue of 3D World (the one with Godzilla and King Kong on the cover) which is available in the UK now or everywhere electronically
Ok. Excited (another word is scared) to announce that I will be one of the speakers for the first Foundry Session which will be an online session on the 19th June at 7pm......where I will be talking about the Creative Collective from The Foundry and other things - check out how to sign up here
