The Inspirational

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 […]

Crooked VR?

After Facebook bought Oculus and their “virtual reality” goggle everyone went crazy, shortly followed by Sony, Google and others with their own projects and it seems now in the post-Stereo-3D and post-4k-craze era this is the latest trend/ fad.

Quadratic Plants

The eternal race between SpeedTree and The Plant Factory just got more balanced again with the 2015 version of the latter tool also supporting quad meshes and even promising to merge them for contiguous (subdiv) cages. Interestingly, they also reworked their wind algorithm (since I only ever had the free PLE version I have no […]

Cuuute kissing

That is so cute: Jude and Connor Kiss I wish I would have thought of kissing the boy I had a crush on when I was 13. ;-) Also props to the script writers: “I don’t get you.” perfectly summarizes this turmoil of mixed emotions you have for your best buddy, mixed with all the […]
