After Effects region of interest After Effects CC 2015 (13.5) is now available. For details about what’s new and changed in After Effects CC 2015 (13.5), see this page. IMPORTANT: Before installing the new version of After Effects, please read this page about the default behavior of the updater, which is to remove all previous versions of the application, and this page about why you might not want to do that. The biggest piece of work for After Effects CC 2015 (13.5) has been a complete re-architecture of how rendering occurs, specifically regarding separating the main render thread from the thread that controls the user interface. Please, check with the vendors of your third-party plug-ins for updates that are compatible with After Effects CC 2015 (13.5). I said that most are ready. As usual, Toolfarm is doing an excellent job of tracking which plug-ins have updates, and where to get them. Trapcode Sound Keys (Red Giant) This bug is our fault, not the fault of Trapcode or Red Giant. other Red Giant plug-ins Boris FX
MoI, 3D modeling for designers and artists TOTAL PHOTOSHOP (tut. video immagine ecc.) Up&Up è il nuovo, spettacolare, video dei Coldplay Il gruppo britannico ha pubblicato sui propri canali ufficiali il video del nuovo singolo Up&Up ottenendo, subito, moltissime visualizzazioni. Posto che i Coldplay possono piacere o non piacere, siamo qui per suggerirvi di dare un’occhiata (ed anche più di una) alla clip. Up&Up – Due parole sui registi Non ce ne voglia chi non è appassionato del settore e chi è abituato a spegnere la televisione quando compaiono i titoli di coda, ma non possiamo non dedicare almeno due parole a chi ha realizzato questo capolavoro. Up&Up – Messaggi subliminali Come già accennato, questo video porta con sè una serie di immagini che richiamano ad argomenti di attualità, vediamone qualche esempio. Fiori compaiono tra i grattacieli di NewYork per ricordare come l’eccessiva urbanizzazione stia portando via spazio alla natura. Un muro collocato in una splendida spiaggia blocca l’accesso al mare. Up&Up – Come hanno fatto? Up&Up – Il video

Spatial and Dassault Put 3D CAD on the Cloud. What it All Means. - SolidSmack At the beginning of the year I predicted a move of 3D apps toward the cloud. Anyone could have guessed that though. SolidWorks showed-off the cross-platform possibilities and Autodesk put AutoCAD on the cloud. But, working with 3D geometry via the web hasn’t been seen… till this past week. Deelip Menezes broke the news Tuesday morning from the Spatial European Forum. The news has massive implications for the CAx and design Industries. Who is Spatial? What’s happened? From Deelip’s first post on the news: Dassault Systemes is giving its CGM modeling kernel (the technology that powers CATIA V6) to Spatial so that it can license it to other CAD vendors and application developers. …and Spatial has demonstrated a CAD application on the cloud, as you’ll see below. What does it mean? How will this affect software developers? How will this affect the CAD Industry as a whole? The Spatial 3D Web App Spatial’s web-based 3D is currently called SPAWeb3D (or ACIS Live depending where you look).
i love sketch Seok-Hyung Bae, Ravin Balakrishnan, and Karan Singh are about to present “ILoveSketch: As-natural-as-possible sketching system for creating 3D curve models,” ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2008 (Monterey, CA, USA, October 19-22, 2008) ILOVESKETCH is a 3D curve sketching system that captures some of the affordances of pen and paper for professional designers, allowing them to iterate directly on concept 3D curve models. The system coherently integrates existing techniques of sketch-based interaction with a number of novel and enhanced features. What this means in simple terms s that you don’t need to learn complex 3d modeling software to be able to design a 3D object using hand sketch based tools. ILoveSketch from Seok-Hyung Bae on Vimeo.
SketchChair: Furniture Designed by You by Diatom SketchChair is a free, open-source software tool that allows anyone to easily design and build their own digitally fabricated furniture. The goal for this project is not just to complete the software and release the source code, but also to build an online community of people creating, sharing and editing designs. Digital manufacturing processes open up a world of opportunity for producing unique individualised objects, but we think there is a lack of accessible digital tools that allow anybody to use these processes to design and make their own functional, personalised products. This furniture is designed or customized using a simple 2d drawing interface. The program automatically generates a structure for your chair and lets you simulate sitting on it with a virtual model of yourself. As you interact with the tool, it generates the cutting pattern for your design, which can then be sent to a digital fabrication machine.
