The Third Dimension

Nothing compares 2 U

Wonderful song, isn’t it? I still have those pictures of Sinead O’Connor in my head… In the wake of the recent release of Cinema 4D R17 inevitably those questions popped up on my dashboard about an updated/ revised comparison of modo vs. Cinema. The bad news is, that I’m not going to do it. There’s a […]

The most important Feature modo doesn’t have?!

The last one and a half week have been making ripples, well, waves actually, in modo land since they opened up an old wound regarding everyone’s favorite missing feature: The total absence of parametric, re-editable text, including options for extrusions, bevels and so on. that and of course similarly the lack of proper spline tools. The […]

R17 not so cute

Alas, my predictions were too optimistic and thus wrong, but well, perhaps I need to change that flickering light bulb in my crystal ball. The cat’s out of the bag and the new features for Cinema 4D R17 have been announced and it’s pretty lackluster, if I may say so. A lot of stuff like […]

R17 Cuteness

CC 2015 – Fix and new Issues

Continuing yesterday’s listing, I can now happily report that Video CoPilot have fired out a compatible version of Element 3D. Check your account on their web site and download the latest update. Meanwhile, elsewhere it has been confirmed that loading (Sony) MXF files in After Effects (and possibly also Premiere Pro) is screwed. As they put […]


The sneaky little bastards at Adobe have been on a shopping spree once again and while it didn’t quite turn out to be The Foundry or Maxon, they’ve sunk their teeth into Mixamo. If they would refrain from decorating everything with their marketing bullshit, things would be much easier to bear, but while this may be […]
