The Geeky

Broken Lens

One of my many little secrets is that I keep watching Making-ofs and Behind-the-Scenes material packed in the bonus sections of DVDs/ Blu-Rays even on awful movies like Star Wars Episode I-III since it’s just interesting from a technical point of view and understanding the process of how some films come together. That being the […]

Adobe buys The Foundry ?

It’s Monday and the end of the (VFX) world just has been announced… Or so it seems. What undoubtedly can only be considered surprising or even shocking news, it seems Adobe may get involved in the bidding war for The Foundry. OMFG! Of course for now it’s only a rumour and in fact the article exposes […]

As much as I hate to say it, nothing […]

Project XBR (a re-designed MAX based on nodal workflows) had been demoed several years and yet never […]

Calendar Mom

Since my mom is a teacher, she got it in her head to give her soon to be ex-students a custom photo calendar as a parting gift. While I’m generally proud of her embracing computers even at a late age (she only started when she was around 50), she’s the “Your mom nuked the Internet.” […]
