Optimized CPU and GPU rendering with V-Ray now available for Modo. 20% off until July 20th 2016.
Some really nice wireframes and renders from the new Independence day: Resurgence film. Work done by MPC.
Some nice looking CGI from season 6 of Game of Thrones.
Looks like a lot of great presentations but I'm really hoping to hear about Zbrush 5.
Matt Cox, lead developer for the Modo 10.1 procedural modeling tools talks about the new stack based modeling system and the work behind it over the last few years.
So I've spent the last week or two putting the site together at the new domain massivetree.com. My former website is at 3DNocturne.com. If its even still up (which I hope it won't be for long), be prepared for a truly ugly web experience. I'm no web developer. Thanks to a friend who does web design, she suggested I go with Squarespace so I am giving that a try and so far its been a pretty good experience. Most everything is click and drag and the settings are pretty easy to figure out although I'm not 100% happy with the overall design, it is so much better then my old site which I believe used frames and some older web tech that maybe scientists used back in the 80's to communicate via what would eventually become the internet we know and love. And hate.
So why MassiveTree? To be honest, it means nothing, it holds really no meaning for me personally. But I liked the sound of it. I have a friend named Paul (aka Pooby) who has a site and its called bustykelp. While trying to come up with a new name for my new home on the web, I had to know where the name bustykelp came from, I thought it might give me some insight or inspiration. After talking with him, the simple answer was, it meant nothing for him either. It was just something zany or kooky enough to make an interesting site name. Well I wanted something that invoked an image in my mind, something that was easy to spell (I spent the last 5 years having to spell out my website to everyone I gave it out to and believe me, that gets old pretty quick) and something that sounded vaguely important without being specific. Enter my new website MassiveTree.
