  1. The work that went into this 3D animation was just amazing https://youtu.be/4IKUeIEdRMY
  2. I thought, this has to be Houdini. The purple ocean in particular had to be Houdini Ocean. So I started looking for info and it came down to a company called BUF. Like a lot of high end companies they don't use anybody's software. They created their own; B Suite. https://buf.com/films/twin-peaks/ http://bufsoftware.com/products/bsuite#bstudio We’ve regrouped all our powerful integrated software in 2 separate packages. Bcreative Suite includes all the tools BUF has built and improved to ease the creative process : A complete 3D pipeline studio from modeling, dynamics, animation to high end rendering, a node-based compositing software, a batch process manager and many more… Bpipeline Suite is the collection of efficient tools creating a coherent pipeline that meets productions biggest challenges in Full CG Animated films and live actions movies especially regarding financial constraints : A production management tool, an asset management tool and many more… Only Bview is available so far! Bcreative Suite is coming progressively, then Bpipeline Suite. Interested in Bsuite or just one of these software. Register now and find out more.

    Finally Apple to release a new Mac Pro

    Is it overpriced or underpriced? https://www.techradar.com/news/msi-mocks-apples-dollar999-pro-display-xdr-stand-with-a-5k-monitor-for-almost-the-same-price

    There's a lot more to this than I thought.

    Houdini 17 Direct Modeling Sneak Peek..

    If you look at the gumroad page it says; "More videos and tutorials are coming" And as for " With a comment on which areas this asset shines in and what are some of its drawbacks to be aware of?" It's funny because I was just watching this video when the ad for DM1.5 arrived in my email. It makes a pretty good enquiry into the use of n-gons in modern modeling and their drawbacks. This Direct Modeling is essentially the same as Groboto's Mesh Fusion in Modo. So there seem to be n-gons galore in this application. Is that a deal killer?

    Houdini 17 Direct Modeling Sneak Peek..

    https://gumroad.com/l/GVLLS/dm_discount DM 1.5. What's new: SoftBoolean 1.1 - UI improvements and small optimizations, groups preservation, new soft boolean tools Geometry Library 1.5 - add elements by the construction plane, filter items with mask, set a material for icon rebuilding operation, UI fully revamped Menu. fully redesigned menu subsystem. You can now create custom menus with submenus by using a simple Python syntax Menus are now fully customizable and works much better with HiDPI displays DM shelf fully redesigned All tools and HDAs have icons Lots of new modeling HDAs Python code is now open Modeler - a brand new classic modeling environment. From now you can really model in Houdini like in other modeling programs
  8. The big advantage mesh fusion has over booleans in 3d coat is the control you have over beveling and chamfering the intersections between boolean objects which simply doesn't exist in 3D Coat, at least it didn't exist the last time I used 3D Coat two years ago.
  9. It was purchased by Modo and it's embedded fully in Modo and it rules.

    The thing that gets me is with their zillion dollars of cash warfund, and all the super high paid creative talent they've got in their super space age headquarters it takes them four years to come up with piece of junk like this and charge more than double the price for it. Just what are they doing in there?
  11. https://wccftech.com/mac-pro-apple-intel-amd-launch/ GPU options for the MacPro start from AMD’s Radeon 580X and go all the way up to the Radeon Pro Vega II. The aforementioned 56 teraflops of output is achieved by equipping the Mac Pro with two APX modules, which allows two Vega IIs on the rig, for a combined output of 56 teraflops. To expand the Mac Pro ecosystem, and to learn from the past, Apple also introduced its custom expansion card for the Mac Pro earlier today. This card, dubbed as ‘Afterburner’, is an FPGA ASIC that capable of decoding 6.3 billion pixels per second. It can also handle 12 streams of 4K video and 3 streams of 8K video. The standard version of the Mac Pro will feature an eight core Intel Xeon processor that’s coupled with 256GB of SSD storage and 32GB of RAM at a $5,999 price tag. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We’ll keep you updated on the latest.

    This is getting pretty awesome. I sure hope I can get to this level one day. https://blenderartists.org/t/human-progress/1143224/131
