The State of Rendering – Part 1

This part deals with the rendering trends in the VFX industry today. Part 2 includes a run down of 14 of the most popular renderers for VFX. Many of the issues in this special two part series will also be covered in more depth in the July term at fxphd.com. Each Tuesday at ILM in the Presidio in San Francisco at the former military base on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge there is a lunch for all the ILM visual effects supervisors. It is a private lunch where they get to discuss anything and everything. Rendering often comes up in conversations. Pacific Rim. ILM is not alone in seeing rendering as something in need of constant evaluation and far from a simple solution. As Snow described to fxguide, he had told the team at Pixar earlier that day, “I am old school ILM – and we were RenderMan people – almost RenderMan chauvinist actually.

To anyone who hasn’t seen it demonstrated, 3-D printing sounds futuristic—like the meals that materialized in the Jetsons’ oven at the touch of a keypad.

3-D Printing Will Change the World

But the technology is quite straightforward: It is a small evolutionary step from spraying toner on paper to putting down layers of something more substantial (such as plastic resin) until the layers add up to an object. And yet, by enabling a machine to produce objects of any shape, on the spot and as needed, 3-D printing really is ushering in a new era. Fotogrametria.

The list not exhaustive — and it is certain to keep growing over time: Wood: The New-comer The newcomer in the group of 3Dprinting filament materials is wood.

3DP Materials Review

The material itself is a mix of wood particles and polymers, which can be used to 3Dprint objects that kind of look like cardboard more than real wood. What is positive about it is that the print texture is simply beautiful and it hides print layers nicely, without making extremely thin layers. 3D Printing.

AS3 Particle Node Sequencer › Experimenting with the Tonfall Audio Engine. “An experimental particle based audio sequencer, created in Flash using Tonfall; the new open source AS3 audio engine produced by Andre Michelle …” (You can drag each node and switch off the wander behaviour to create your own compositions).

AS3 Particle Node Sequencer › Experimenting with the Tonfall Audio Engine

At Flash on the Beach this year, I had the privilege of seeing Andre Michelle speak. It was great to hear him explain some of his fantastic work behind audiotool and to see and hear some more of his audio experiments. He also introduced Tonfall, which is an open source AS3 framework designed to get people started with Audio programming in Flash. From the horses mouth; “Tonfall introduces only a vague design of an audio engine and is rather focussed on readability and simplicity than performance optimizations”. I know that I’m not alone in feeling inspired by what Andre has done for the Flash platform, particularly when it comes to audio, yet lack the knowledge he has invested so much time and hard work in acquiring.

RepRap

RepRap takes the form of a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap prints those parts, RepRap self-replicates by making a kit of itself - a kit that anyone can assemble given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend... Digital Cultural Heritage.

DARPA combines human brains and 120-megapixel cameras to create the ultimate military threat detection system. After more than four years of research, DARPA has created a system that successfully combines soldiers, EEG brainwave scanners, 120-megapixel cameras, and multiple computers running cognitive visual processing algorithms into a cybernetic hivemind.

I’ve had a number of people ask recently about my ‘Intro Sequence’ post and how I achieved the volumetrics in the scene, so I’ve taken some time to put together short ‘how-to’ on the subject.

» Volumetrics – God Rays

It’s very simple and can be very effective. Using this method also allows for a lot of tweaking as the render times are very low. Firstly you can complete your scene before worrying about any of the mist/fog. So, most importantly you should ensure your scene looks good first, don’t rush to the fun stuff or you’ll end up with sub standard work.

Once your happy with the way things are looking we can start to think about adding the volumetrics, in this case were looking to add “god rays” through some trees. So here is the base render, pretty boring looking. There a couple of things you’ll need to do in order to prepare your scene to render out your volumetrics: That’s everything you’ll need to do to prepare you’ll scene, next – configure ‘VRay environment fog’.

April 22, 2013 By Riel Gallant Introduction Since late 2011, when the Fayetteville Public Library received widespread media attention for its hackerspace, 3D printers slowly began appearing in libraries around the world, particularly in the United States.
