The Inspirational

Gentlemen, start your Houdinis!

Or was it engines? Or even Houdini Engines? ;-) Yepp, as per this it’s coming to a Cinema 4D near you. Kinda interesting but weird at the same time – given how SideFX have reduced their pricing in recent years it would almost make more sense to get the real thing. Too bad┬áthat the market […]

Egg Head

One of those questions that I see regularly on forums is how to make splines inside MoGraph Cloners respond to deformers. In the setup provided below you can find one possible solution. The added benefit is that this setup is fully dynamic and can respond even to animation. Enjoy! Wire Nest Setup

I see Nodes (lots of them)

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know about my obsession about data graphics such as my custom relationship diagram using Plexus as well as my interest in fake UI stuff in movies and what could be better when both go together? The new version of Yanobox Nodes looks pretty rad. Too […]

The better NAB News

When last I speculated on what The Foundry might be up to anything could have happened and here we are sort of expectedly unexpected. While the introduction of Nuke Studio may count as valid news, it didn’t really come as that much of a surprise if you connected the dots between Hiero and Nuke. That […]

Dear Harry,…

Edit: Rewrote some sentences to make them more clear. …Your comment on this little bugger finally made it clear to me that I think I need to explain myself a bit more. It’s not that I hate Universe, but I hate Universe. Why? First, it reminds me of what Red Giant have been doing with […]

Strange as it is, this time has been as stressful as going to work with a hand full of pre-scheduled medical appointments and the hoopla with the (un-)employment agency, but […]


Ever since little Niklas snatched the Pirates of the Carribean DVD while sneaking around my parents’ flat he’s pretty obsessed about Capt. Jack Sparrow (sounds sooo cute when he pronounces it wrongly) and you can’t make him more happy than printing out ships and other clip art stuff he can use for coloring. That made […]

Sir Patrick & Sir Ian

The two most awesomest actors on the planet! I never can get enough of that stuff.


Yesterday was a funny day in that nobody seemed to have considered the Winter Olympics opening ceremony. I had a ton of invitations to watch odd webinars on stuff that probably wouldn’t have interested me in the least, anyway. So instead I sat down and watched that other stuff, expecting it to be pretty cheesy, […]

Elysium what?!

Hollywood is a strange system. Always hungering for money, studios are on the permanent hunt for the next wunderkind that makes them lots of cash. That being so, every director who produced a film “on a budget” and lands a surprise hit is then handed a bigger project with more stars and a higher budget […]
