The Third Dimension

Goodbye PDI!

For the last two days there has been a slight outcry over the immediately beginning closing down of a part of Dreamworks Animation known as PDI (Pacific Data Images) a long time. On a quite general level I do not particularly care, but the interesting anecdote here is that I considered Antz always the better movie about ants compared to […]

Wavin’ and (Mis-)Behavin’

It’s one of those weeks where working the Adobe forums is literally so dull and frustrating, I can barely hold on to myself. Almost miraculous that I’m not barking at everyone. The far below par quality of Adobe‘s support certainly doesn’t make things easier on the forums, too. *argh* Speaking of frustrations, I realize more and […]

Maxon, you will get Mail!

Ah, it seems I go through this roughly every 5 years. Yepp, I just wrote my cancellation letter for my MSA and thus my on/off love-hate relationship with Cinema 4D will once more come to a close, at least for a while. As I wrote a week ago, the financial burden is one thing, but aside […]

I maintain my position that most definitely there are […]

New Year, new Blogs, same old Shit

The Battle of the five Snoggies

Just like the last two years I went to see The Hobbit. Even in its third iteration, the HFR takes a lot of getting used to and personally I’m not taken in by it beyond that it helps the 3D stereo. The latter is actually quite good, but at the same time it sometimes quite obviously […]

Flowing inside a Box

As a part-time geek/ nerd of course I’m no stranger to node-based apps and workflows, be that XPresso in Cinema 4D,compositing stuff in Fusion or Blender or modo‘s Schematic view. I even dabbled with Nuke and Houdini every now and then and of course if it wasn’t for the price and licensing restrictions would also enjoy […]
