The Third Dimension

Adult Cinema

It’s SIGGRAPH time again and pretty much like every year, Maxon is getting the “new release” carousel spinning with their announcement of Cinema 4D R 18. Being 18 years so happens to be the age where you are considered an adult in legal terms in many countries around the globe, so this seems fitting. Like in […]

Fresh (Body)Paint

I admit, I really don’t like any form of digital painting. It’s always like you have to futz around with ten different brushes and a million brush strokes forever to achieve something that takes a minute with a piece of paper and a pencil. That also extends to texturing 3D stuff. Luckily, I did CAD […]

Procedural Modo(e)ling

Two weeks of no activity… Guess that shows how much I’ve withdrawn from my former life and all that geek nonsense I used to obsess about. *lol* Anyway, at least a bit of  worthwile news comes our way with the release of Modo 10.1 – the one with the procedural modeling stuff. As I wrote […]

The starting point was someone looking to replace his four year old card and he was quite generically asking about the future-proof-ness of the 1080 without even […]

It’s Plexus… only without Plexus

I guess it was only a matter of time and actually it’s quite amazing that it took so long, but now indeed Plexus has been copied. Of course one can’t copyright every idea, but this feels like a bit of a painful rip-off. Some of the things in there sound all too familiar if you’ve ever […]

Modoflex

After ten years or so, Modo is finally gaining a bit of steam and beginning to attract some serious interest from third-party developers. So at long last we can toy around with Fabric for Modo. Combined with the procedural stuff in Modo 10 this should allow some nifty things, though both have some not so […]

Modo+P, Cinema+RF, Element+SW

A bit of news is making the rounds, which has people a bit jazzed up with excitement and that news is Modo 10.1 coming and as a Public Beta at that to boot. Before getting too carried away with dances of joy at the prospect of trying out the new procedural tools, you might want […]
