The Tube Open Movie by Bassam Kurdali » Updates Friends! Supporters! Please pardon the radio silence while we've been cranking frenetically to get the movie made. Conducting such an ambitious project with a tiny budget means that we all work on Tube with one hand while also keeping the lights on with the other. Our lovely crew is pushing hard to ready the trailer for release in time for the Siggraph conference next week, which five of Tube's artists (Bassam, Pablo, Hanny, Francesco, and Bing-Run) will take a few days out to attend. To whet the appetite, here are a few render tests from the work that's been in-progress, as well as a fast look at some of what's been happening: Between inescapable bouts of his trademark rigging, Bassam's screens are full with a mix of directing, project management, shading tasks, time-lapse animation, pipeline coding, and more. A great group of super-talented artists and interns have joined our local crew both visiting from abroad and online.

Creating Ambient Occlusion with transparency texture– Tutorial | PixelCG Tips & Tricks In my previous post Dissecting the mib_amb_occlusion node. I talked about using transparency in Ambient occlusion, but I didn’t really cover the subject of using texture with alpha and having that casing AO on the nearby object. In this simple scene we have a texture file with alpha assigned to a separate geometry. If we would to render, we get this result. A regular AO pass would look something like so This in theory is accurate, since ambient occlusion doesn’t recognize alpha in texture files. Note: The mib_fg_occlusion node requires having Final Gather to be turned on. Create a surface Shader and assign the mib_fg_occlusion to it’s out color. Create another surface Shader that will be assigned to the transparency object. Open the SG node of that new shader, under mental ray > custom shader and add mib_transparency node (found under mental ray Sample Compositing) To get the AO to appear, we just need to add the same mib_fg_occlusion node to the Input of the mib_transparency.
