The latest update to the Corona Renderer once again brings many new features to this CPU-based un(biased) photorealistic renderer. The focus is on speed in rendering & workflow, with overhauled Distributed Rendering, improvements to IR, the Corona Image Editor for working with your images outside of any 3D application, bake LightMix settings into the scene, 3ds Max 2018 support, and more!
ANIMA 2 came on the market in June 2016 and after several updates, it has been consolidated as the best solution for quickly and easily creating stunning 3D animations in very little time. ANIMA 2.5 becomes a software for daily usage to populate scenes mainly due to the introduction of Metropoly Ready-Posed model support for still imagery.
iToo Software has released a new Forest Pack tips and tricks installment created by guest writer Mickael Riciotti, environment artist at Unit Image in Paris. Inspired by a recent article on FX Guide about creating the sand using Houdini for Pixar’s short film Piper, Mikael wanted to see if he could create a similar look with 3ds Max, V-Ray and Forest Pack Pro.
iToo Software sure speeds up the pace of tutorials, and today they release a new exciting RailClone in-depth tutorial that demonstrates how to create wooden paneling and wainscoting. Not the typical thing I would usually have in an ArchVIZ project, but in the end, you will see how the same principles could be applied to anything else you have in mind!
I remember seeing this iToo Software presentation during State of Art Academy Ad#5. It was pretty cool seeing them building the hotel in which the event took place! That simple twist to the exercise emphasized to all of us there that the ability to see parametric objects all around us can be developed by anyone if he only observes. Today, this scene along with a detailed how-to is being released so those who weren’t able to attend can benefit from it too. Enjoy!
