Happy Blog 3rd Birthday!

August 15, 2012 |  by  |  News

Today marks the 3rd year for this blog being on the air! And I have all of you to say thank you for being part of this… Time does fly when you’re having fun! The blog kept growing in the past year and I plan to keep the momentum going strong. I hope I can celebrate many more such birthdays for this blog and keep providing you all the best place to find information, share & learn about Architectural Visualization.

I owe a big thank you to you all, my readers, followers & sponsors! Without you this wouldn’t be possible… so once again I thought I should give back a little too during the next 2+ weeks.

The Giveaways

There will be 4-5 Giveaways during the month of August entering September! You’ll have to follow me on Twitter or Facebook to get a heads up about what is coming up and when, or just keep visiting the blog for updates – I figure it is more fun and exciting this way, don’t you?

The Museum / Maxwell Render Challenge

The Museum Maxwell Render Challenge will end today after 2+ months of great work by the challengers who are busy right now finishing up their entries and uploading them up! Visit the challenge thread to see what is going on right now…

The Museum / Lumion Challenge

The Real-Time Lumion version of ‘The Museum’ Challenge is also scheduled to kick-start today featuring a pretty cool Cash Prize for first place and more. This should be a unique followup to the unbiased maxwell render work that was done in the challenge that ended today… with motion too!

This challenge will run on the forums too, but it will also be time for the new site Lumionautics to get some much needed love (it is also rather slow loading currently). make sure to signup to get notified once it shifts gears and goes into the nest stage.
