GreyScale Congratulations to Michael Rinnan for winning the Five Second Project for March. His entry had a great concept and was outfitted with excellent lighting, atmosphere, camera movements and sound design. We wanted to know a little bit more about Michael’s entry, so we asked him a few questions regarding his workflow and the process for creating his winning piece. Where do you work? What is your title?
Sci-Fi Character Series « Concept Cookie Hello everyone and welcome to this Free Tutorial Series with Tim Von Rueden on Creating a Sci-Fi Character! In this Free tutorial series, Tim Von Rueden takes you through drawing Sci-Fi Character. In this 3 part series we go through creating a Sci-Fi character through silhouettes, base colors, and integrating textures to create a final image! Citizen members can download the resources, textures and HD Videos. Not a Citizen member? Modeling & Rendering an Interior Scene using 3ds Max and Vray: Part 1 Since we're aiming to make a realistic interior scene, the scale of the objects is very important. To keep things accurate, go to Customize > Units Setup and select the Metric system, and then choose Centimeters from the drop-down. Throughout this tutorial I'll be giving you the values that I used in the scene, however don;t feel you have to match these exactly!
ORA Prophecy - .work The Prophecy video is teaching via an abstract journey through an evolving space; a theoretical exploration of mankind’s black hole, and the dissonance created in a perfect void. It fluctuates with light and energy throughout the transmission as we are pulled down an endless tunnel, searching for our purpose as the Oracle narrates our inevitable future. Our journey is a unification of a hybrid of techniques, utilizing a mixture of CG-inspired facets of light shapes and digital objects meshed with practical, macro-photography of natural and chemical tunnel occurrences. Stock sourced clips that punctuate key moments in human history, mirrored by the voice-over, will shoot out from this central void. Coupled with heavily stylized live-action renderings of the ORACLE herself, we remind the viewer that this experience could be based in our world, and yet dictating a potential reality that we want to avoid.
45+ Incredible Maya Tutorials Around Autodesk Maya, or simply Maya, is a high-end 3D computer graphics and 3D modeling software package originally developed by Alias Systems Corporation, but now owned by Autodesk as part of the Media and Entertainment division. Maya is a powerful, 3-D modeling, texturing, and rendering application, with all of the tools needed to do nearly every type of animation imaginable, from simulations of real-world physics to character animation with a wide spectrum of emotive expressions. In this article below, we’ll take a look at Various Maya Tutorials for your source of inspiration which help you to deal with high-end 3D computer graphics. However, they all have something in common: they all give you clean idea about latest techniques. For those, who don’t know what is Maya?

For example, you may have a layer quickly scale up from zero to 100 percent and you want to add a little overshoot and oscillation and have it finally settle in at 100 percent. Another example would be if you have an object falling into frame and you want it to bounce a little when it hits bottom. These two scenarios seem similar, but they represent very different physical processes.
Realistically Light and Render Interior Scenes using 3ds Max and Vray Discover the secrets behind properly lighting and rendering interior scenes with 3ds Max and Vray in this easy to follow, step by step walkthrough. Scene setup, modeling, texturing, lighting, and rendering for realistic output will all be discussed, so there is literally something in here for everyone! Additional Files/ Plugins: Download the Project Files for this tutorial The project Story of ButtleOFX It all started in 2007, when actors of a collaborative project which gathered post production companies and academic institutions brought up the idea of TuttleOFX, an open source modular and sustainable image processing architecture. Today, TuttleOFX is a growing software composed of an OpenFX plugin set (IO, color transformations, geometry, text burn, …) and a nodal engine usable in C++, in Python or directly in command lines. The desire to build a user interface based on TuttleOFX gradually increased and has been strengthened by a strong need of a simple but complete compositing solution for the VFX open source community. This is how in 2012, Fabien Castan, one of the funders of TuttleOFX, had the idea to propose ButtleOFX as a teaching project to the students of IMAC engineering school.
Complex Material Tutorial By Joe “EarthQuake” Wilson How do I make X material type in Toolbag? I decided to throw together an asset to help explain how the Marmoset Toolbag material system works and display the type of art content I create to mimic various real world material properties. Download the camera asset to follow along and view in full 3D glory inside of Toolbag, here: DOWNLOAD CAMERA ASSET Unzip the asset to your Toolbag directory: X:\Program Files(x86)\MarmosetToolbag
AE Portal by Rich Young Here's another summary of the last week or so of news on After Effects-assorted tutorials and tools, animation aids, CC Hair, son of Ken Burns, expressions, and more. Create Your Own Little Fuzzy Friends by Ran Ben Avraham leverages the rarely used CC Hair plug-in, as well as iExpressions by Mamoworld for animation. Harry Frank used CC Hair for some nice looking grass in Making It Look Great 3, while Andrew Kramer had another good take on CC Hair in FREE PROJECT: Fiber Particles. [Update: see also Andrew Kramer's bonus jungle scene that used CC Hair effects to create some overgrown bits of grass on 3D text. Earlier Harry Frank posted Particular Grass, a free AE project file.
BISOUS LES COPAINS Bisous les Copains in 3D! Video HERE I’m doing a series of 3d vehicles :)> on vimeo / dribbble Model a Stylish Eames Lounge Chair In 3ds Max In this tutorial we are going to model a 20th century design legend, the Eames Lounge Chair. The reason I chose this particular object are its different shapes and forms. It has both soft, organic pillows (with wrinkles) and a hard, defined structure that holds it all together, making it an excellent way to learn how to model both soft and hard structures.
