8 years ago today, the blog was born! Today I’m celebrating the blog birthday with a new podcast launch… Say hello to The SpectRoom!
Tav Shande is a technical artist with experience in the games industry working at EA, Crytek, & Activision on titles such as DeadSpace, Crysis 2, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, MW3, WWII & more. The Vipp Shelter UE4 VR environment is a spare time project Tav did try out new software and techniques. Inspired by the clean architectural and surrounding nature, this is the making of this project, sharing workflow, techniques, and thoughts that went into the creation of the scene. Enjoy!
Today I’m happy to share with you the Making of Best of Week 18/2017 – “The Oak Pass House” by Ján Morek. This one is unique, being an amazing recreation of the house and done fully in Blender, using blender tools, plugins, and scripts. Furniture aside, all was made by Ján, and so represents what one can do in the Blender ecosystem.
Today’s inspiration comes thanks to Ján Morek, following his Best of Week 18/2017 recreation of the Oak Pass House. Located in Beverly Hills, United States and designed by Walker Workshop, The Oak Pass main house sits on the top of a 3.5 acre ridge site with panoramic canyon views. There are over 130 protected Oak trees on the property which serves as a great reference for architecture being enveloped by GREEN!
We all do a personal project now and then. Some even struggle with doing one, but Mariusz Becker took it upon himself to do one per day for 13 months! You ask why? I let him answer in this case study which will have a following technical article with your help as well (see this at the end of this article).
Today at the SIGGRAPH Conference, Epic Games revealed advancements in real-time CG production workflows. New developments included a technology preview of Datasmith, a workflow toolkit to simplify moving data into Unreal Engine for architectural and design visualizations.
