The WTF?

Grow me a Forest…

While I’m currently not using Cinema 4D, I still follow developments and combined with my obsession about virtual plant generation, Forester could be of some relevance, but then again maybe not. I take issue with a few things that are all too apparent even from the demo videos. The trees look crude and very “artificially generated”. They remind […]

Miracles happen?

Maxon, what took you so long? When it comes to being closed up, they were closed up as someone who has been tied, gagged and plugged during a BDSM play session (yes, I know how that stuff works; feel free to ask). Gathering from this thread over at CGTalk it seems they’re finally coming around. Did […]

After Effects repainted?

Things being what they are, After Effects is pretty screwed up these days. Not only is it behind the times in terms of technologies (notwithstanding of course some science-driven stuff like the Key Cleaner and Refine Edges effects) and performance, but also over the years many of its paradigms and tools didn’t turn out quite as […]

Cineware Redux

Yepp, looking for software cracks via my site just isn’t nice and my dashboard doesn’t lie. ;-) Not that I wouldn’t understand your motivations, but you’ll have better luck elsewhere, whether you’re just taking a “I want my stuff to be free” attitude or just want to revive your legally purchased […]

CC 2015 Point (Zero Zero) Two?

The universe is going to make another burp (or rather a dissatisfied loud belch) with the upcoming second year half versions of Adobe‘s video tools. Inevitably in time for IBC the news are trickling in and if I hadn’t better things to do, I’d go *facepalm* all the time. When did the world become so […]
